Critters vs Animals

15Nov08

I’ve decided.  I like calling critters critters, instead of calling them animals.

It just seems that if they are animals, they are without character. If they are critters a certain quality is given to them, even if that quality is just cuteness.  Also, ‘critter’ as a word sounds more alive. We can just imagine them crawling, creeping, sneaking, and playing, by calling them critter.

Call them ‘animal’ and it’s like we want to dissect them, categorize them, neuter them, and make them into an inferior them as opposed to  a companionable us.  I want character as opposed to lifeless objects, so give me critters, any day
