One thought on “Did You See That Press Release? Wackiest Pet Names, Top Party Schools Revealed

  1. I have to say that I agree. I owned a cat many years ago, and the relationship was ditto. However, I now own a small reindeer Chihuahua, and I certainly consider him to be a small child. My mother is on her 3rd cat, and I can quickly tell that she definitely sees her cat (tuffy) as a small person! Interesting article
