Monologue Mania Day #1069 No More Pets (for the Senior Channel) by Janet S. Tiger (c) Jan. 16, 2017

    Although this is for the Senior Channel, an actor of any age is possible

                                   No More Pets!
                                       A monologue   by Janet S. Tiger

             (Angry actor enters)

You took away my more left!  How am I gonna take my grandchildren?  No elephants or tigers!  And now, no more Shamu!

Well, I am starting a brand new movement that will get all of you -  NO MORE PETS!  You heard me right, PETA!  No one should OWN any animal.  

What animal in their right mind would agree to be the slave to a human?

That's what it is, slavery!

People take their animals and do horrible things with them, like forcing them to live inside houses!  What animals lived in houses before humans!  None!  

And to wear those little outfits - even worse!

For those who say...(mimics) ' oh, my pet is well taken care of....well fed....has medical attention...'  Well that's exactly the words Barnum and Bailey used about THEIR animals!  

(Mimics)We make sure they have fresh water, and we only breed them to make sure there are still some left.....'

But that's what Seaworld said about Shamu!

So for all you people who hate the sound of yapping dogs and howling cats....who hate the poop left on lawns, and the ripped up furniture when other people's pets visit.......

Join me!  No more pets!  No more pets!  No more pets!

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Of course, there will be one exclusion in the new law......for my little baby you go....

        (Indicates the bunny is in the shirt and takes out a carrot, exits to a strange new, -almost pet-free-world!)
This is based on the just released news that Barnum and Bailey circus is closing - and Shamu just had the last show at Sea World.  The times they are a' changing!
