PET OWNERSHIP-THE CHOICE TEST

From reading my previous post, you are now aware of the right reasons and also the wrong reasons to having pets. Hence, it is time to test yourself  and see if you deserve to continue your journey to getting a pet by participating in this little test I designed.

To read my previous post, click here: PETS

'The Choice Test', is the first of many test as well as checklists to come for you to participate in this series of 'Pet Ownership' segment of mine. Here is the starting line on your journey into the world of pet ownership guided by me.

All you need for this test are:
  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Calculator (if you prefer)

In this test, there will be a total of 15 questions. Each question comes with 3 selection of answers accompanied by it's value that you have to choose. When you have chosen your answer for your first question, write down it's value on your piece of paper or add it into your calculator. Move on to the second question and add the value of your chosen answer to the first value. Finish the test and you would have the grand total which will refer you to your result.

There are 3 outcomes to this test. One is good, the other one is not so good and the last one is just bad. I wish you all the best of luck.

~FINISH~

Your results!
If your score was 15 (THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE)
Congrats! You have what it takes to make the right choices for you and the animals. You get to move on to the next test and continue on your journey to pet ownership without having to repeat this.

If your score was 14 (MISSED ONE)
You probably have not read my blog and will read it after you did this test. If so, you don't have to do this test again. The force is with you too.
If you scored in between 16-30 (AMATEUR HOUR)
I'm sorry, I suggest you do more research on mistreatment towards animals. You are not quite there yet, but I belief you can pass when you are ready to retake it again. May the force be with you.
If you scored less than 15 or higher than 30 (CLUELESS)
Fail. It is either you are too young to understand or you just can't make the right choices for the animals. I appreciate your effort taking this test and I belief you got what it takes to turn things around because if you don't, there was no reason for you to be taking this test in the first place. First step to recovery is always to try. 

I hope you enjoyed doing this test. Thank you so much!
