Everywhere you go, almost everyone you meet, has some form of pet. Whether it be a cat or dog or even some form of rodent, everyone has a companion animals.
But what is exactly is a companion animal?
A companion animal is an animal kept for a person’s company and cannot be used for medical, agriculture, or profit purposes. So seeing eye dogs and milk cows are out.
But I own several farm animals, 3 donkeys and 3 goats. But are they considered companion animals? Maybe. Do they serve medical purposes? HA. no. Do they serve agriculture purposes? NO. Do they make us a profit? NO.
But what are they then? They honestly just kinda sit there. They serve as our companions, greeting us as we arrive home every day. Just like any cat or dog, they enjoy seeing us and let us pet them. They have favorite treats. Otis, a donkey, absolutely loves cucumbers and freaks out every time he sees them. He especially loves when we play the radio for him.
Although it is kinda socially backwards, my companion animals are just defined as animals that wag their tails and barks. My companion animals are like no other. They have hooves and horns and bray instead of bark.
