Will Your Retirement Lifestyle Include Pets?

                       Are ya takin' us with ya, Parental Unit?

This question is moot for Parental Unit because she simply won't be retiring...due to, ahem, lack of funds. But loads of other, smarter folks will retire soon (think all those baby boomers), and it's not clear that all want pets as part of their lifestyle. Hey, we're costly, time-consuming and present a problem when you take off for parts unknown—at least that's what some folks think.

This recent article in The New York Times shows a divided populace of soon-to-be retirees. Even a longtime ASPCA science advisor, Stephen Zawistowski, says that he and his wife may may try a pet-less post-retirement lifestyle: "The idea that pets are the panacea for stress and loneliness is not necessarily true for everybody," Zawistowski said. For some, it might be painting or playing an instrument..."

We'd love to hear how you feel about having pets in retirement.  If you're not retired yet, do you think you'll have pets in your relaxed golden years? Let us know!
