Pets

Pets. People have kept animals for many reasons throughout the centuries. They could have been working animals or they may have been kept as a source of food.

Pets can become part of the family.

When a person keeps an animal for companionship and to take care of it, the animal is said to be a pet. This is the most common form of animal ownership other than farming. There can be a strong bond that is formed between a pet and an owner, and a pet can become part of the family. The type of pet that people choose will often depend on their personality. Someone who is very independent themselves may choose a pet that has the same independent streak such as a cat. Having a pet is a great way to teach children about responsibility and the importance of looking after something that you care about. Popular pets for children include hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and fish.
