12 Celebrities Who Prefer Pets to Parenthood! (Photos)

Mickey Rourke Cuddles a Pet

Having a child is a pretty big decision if not the biggest decision one will ever make in one’s life. And it’s not for everyone. Some people realize that being a parent is not their calling. Others just aren’t ready yet maybe they still have things they want to do or they are just too young to become a mom or dad.

Instead of having a human child, many have a pet instead who they consider part of their family and treat them as if they were their offspring. Others get a pet to horn their care giving skills, a precursor to having a baby when they are more mature or ready.

Check out these 12 celebrities who so far prefer pets to parenthood!
