Pets are becoming a big part of life everywhere you go! and i can tell you why. There is usually a pet that fits every person and to bond with. In the USA there is almost if not 1 pet for every person. (that doesn’t mean everyone has a pet though) Over 70 million dogs, over 90 million cats, over 145 million (freshwater and saltwater combined), over 15 million birds, over 10 million reptiles and over 15 others! Compare that to the about 350 million people and they almost equal our population. But thats not all bad! They become part of the family, given as gifts, sleep mostly in owners bed, feed them, insure them, you play with them, they create jobs (like HeartyPet)! Thats just in the USA. Incredible but too bad that some people disrespect animals and mistreat them. There is a good and bad to everything.
