  Pet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A pet is an animal that is kept (mostly by humans) for companionship and enjoyment, as opposed to livestock, which are kept for economic reasons.
While in theory one could keep any animal as a pet, in practice a small number of species of mammals, especially dogs and cats, and other animals such as birds have dominated the pet scene for a very long time.
A pet can be acquired from a pet store, an animal shelter, a breeder, and sometimes from people who have too many due to births.
