Humans and animals have been living together for thousands of years. Dogs and cats have been humans' companion animals since forever and who's to say how long people have been keeping fish in bows or birds in cages? It's been a while to be sure. For the most part, people are pretty happy to just have a kitty that will sit in their lap at the end of a day or a dog who likes to play fetch. But not every pet owner is the same. Some people want to experience a different sort of bond, to see what other animals are like in their lives and how well they can exist together. Some people just wish they could have a monkey.

Not everyone is cool with a goldfish. Not that there's anything wrong with a goldfish, but you get it, right?
