Can your pet read your emotions?     Yes!

Funniest moment you’ve had with your pet:     When I was moving out of my house and there was literally no furniture and therefore no places to hide and yet Sammy somehow found hiding spots to the point where I thought he had somehow gotten out because I could not find him anywhere.

What is the most rewarding aspect of owning your pet?   Knowing you are giving a home to an animal who wouldn’t have one, and getting so much love in return!
