A pet animal is an animal kept for companionship and pleasure, as opposed to wild animals or livestock, which are normally kept for economic reasons. Commonly kept pets include dogs, cats, fish, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, and lizards. Pet animals often provide their owners with unconditional love and loyalty. In return, they require proper care and attention. In some cases, a pet’s presence can even have therapeutic benefits such as improving mental health or providing comfort during times of sadness or stress.

Every type of pet and each individual animal has their own unique personality traits and quirks. Can you guess what type of pet animal most closely matches your personality?
