Of course, my fur people are my kids.  :cat: :cat: :cat: :cat: Even my box turtle is part of the family.  When my dogs  :dog: :dog: :dog: were alive they were my kids too.  They're great listeners and know how to make me laugh.  The boys hunt down any bugs that get in.  Two of them sleep under the covers with me and keep me warm in the winter.  They've pulled me through depression.  They're better than most humans I've dealt with.  :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Ever since I was little animals were always part of the family. No matter if they were wild or not.

I think pet are part of the family.  If you have to take care of a pet by feeding it and picking up after it then they are your children

Absolutely!! I would not bring any animal into my home that would be anything than a family member, and I foster dogs quite frequently. When in my care, they are accepted as family, good habits and bad.

Most definitely.  My daughter has 2 cats and to me they are my grandchildren.  I have one cat and she is my baby.

Yes! I have a 5 yr. old cat, and have had him since he was a kitten, and I love him very much. Right now, he is like my baby, as I don't have any kids yet. I think about him when I'm at work or not at home, and worry about him getting into trouble at the house! I know pets don't live forever, but if something were to happen to him anytime soon, I'd be devastated.  :cat:

Yes, our dog, Dolly, is a part of our family. We love her and she loves us. Even though she occasionally makes messes in the house.  :confused1:

Yes! We treat our pets as part of our family. Although they wanted to stay outside but we always included them in our family picture taking during special occasions like xmas.

Is my pet part of the family?  I buy cat food, take photos of her and she thinks I'm HER human so that's probably a big YES.  I think she's laughing because she knows she has me wrapped around her fuzzy little finger.

Have a great day!

We have always included our pets as part of our family. Addy our little dog sleeps with us and goes with us whenever we do out door events. We also love our horses and barn cat who we include in our Christmas card pictures.
