You name any animal and someone somewhere will have it as a pet. Dogs, cats, mice, birds and fish are a part of most families but along the way humans end up befriending a wide range of creatures. Sometimes the relationship is only fleeting but lifelong friendships often form between man and beast. Responsibility in the form of feeding, nurturing, grooming and housing become a new part of our lives.

Fluffy white cat looking pure, soft and gorgeous and is everyone's image of the classic pet. Needing constant grooming, exotic creatures like this one expect nothing less. Great company, cats remain independent beings, considering humans the pets.
