A pet is an animal kept primarily for a person's company or entertainment rather than as a working animal.

Most are often considered to be beautiful, intelligent, and have friendly personalities.

And, some are accepted by their owner regardless of these characteristics.

Two of the most popular family animals are dogs and cats.

They provide their owners both physical and emotional benefits.

Walking a dog can provide both the human and a dog with exercise, fresh air, and social interaction.

Also, they can give companionship to people who are living alone or elderly adults who do not have social interaction with other people.

Other animals commonly kept include rabbits; ferrets; pigs; rodents, such as gerbils, hamsters, chinchillas, rats, mice, and guinea pigs; birds, such as parrots, passerines and fowls; reptiles, such as turtles, alligators, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes; water animals, such as fish, freshwater and saltwater snails, amphibians like frogs and salamanders; and arthropod pets, such as tarantulas and hermit crabs.

Small pets may be grouped together as pocket pets, while the equine and bovine group include the largest companion animals.

People most commonly get dogs, cats, birds, and other small animals for companionship, to protect a home or property, or because of the perceived beauty of the animals.
