Why are companion animals called ‘pets’? — 1 Comment

  1. Interesting subject. I grew up when everyone called their dogs and cats pets. It’s a term I’ve become more uncomfortable with as time goes on. After our legal battles over Kitten I realized how inaccurate that really is. Even though I still use the term from time to time more out of habit I see them as family members and myself as their guardian. I don’t own my cats I am responsible for their well being.
