Any animal kept by humans for companionship or pleasure rather than for utility. The main distinction between pets and domesticated livestock is the degree of contact between owner and animal. Another distinction is the owner's affection for the animal, which is often returned. Dogs are known to have been kept as pets since prehistoric times; cats, since the 16th century BC; and horses, since at least 2000 BC. Other common pets include birds, rabbits, rodents, raccoons, reptiles, amphibians, and even insects. The trend toward making pets of exotic animals (e.g., monkeys and ocelots) is worrisome because owners can rarely provide for their needs, and the animals' already precarious populations are further depleted when members are sold for pets.
Very interesting topic and impressive presentation as far as I could view/hear it.
It's a pity that up to now, I have only been able to view the beginning of the video due to poor connection and have only been able to listen to half of the mp3 file because the many attempts I made to download that filed all failed halfway (the furthest point I got was 65%).
