Millennials are choosing pets over kids for a ton of reasons, from cost (an average of $3085 a year to raise a dog, $12-14,000 for a child) to freedom, basic companionship and not having to wipe their butts.

While not everyone thinks that this is a good thing and sure, the two things are so vastly different that the comparison is a stretch. But after a busy day at a job that doesn't offer the same security or benefits that your parents grew accustomed to, what would you prefer to come home to? A little fluffy bundle of joy who just wants to play and cuddle, or a demanding child that needs to be cooked for, cleaned after, homework and so on?

Obvious, when you think about it! We here at Bored Panda have compiled a hilarious list of all the memes millennials are sharing to show they prefer animal babies to human ones, just in case you need further convincing. Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Wow, the image quality suggests this was a GIF converted to a TIFF, send through a 1995 phone, and converted to JPEG for coversion to a lower quality version of it.

Same. And before anyone starts blaming parents for not controlling their children, sometimes they just can't. Take my little brothers for example. When someone picks up a bad habit from school that they think is cool, then have fun getting it out of them. Time outs, groundings, and spankings don't seem to work either. I'm only a teen, (which in our current society means very little anyhow) but from what I see, parenthood is hell. I will NEVER willingly have a kid.

We're so lucky to have the choice now! In my grandmother's time, women had children. Period.

I wouldn't mind if the human race dies out... We've been around long enough, we've messed up big time... Might as well leave

You'll change your mind when you're 25. You'll change your mind when you're 30. You'll change your mind when you're 35. You'll change your mind when your biological clock kicks in. Well I'm 41 and haven't still changed my mind, so back off!

Kids drop and break stuff and do not sit still when asked to... Dogs pick up whatever you ask them to and sit still like good Bois and gals... Choose wisely

Worse, at work I said I wanted a dog - my cleaver coworker: "You think you want a dog, but what you actually want is a BABY!". Nope, dog is a dog.
