Do they call them pets because you can pet them?

Also pets are just inferior life forms right?

  • Other way around. We all it petting because it's what you do to pets.

    The word probably comes from the French via Scotland and is a term of endearment literally meaning 'little' as in French "petite amie" pronounced 'petty ah-me' (little female friend, girlfriend). Any creature, human or otherwise which was shown special favor was called a 'pet'.

  • Pets are not inferior life forms. They are angels sent to help protect us. They can tell when we are sad or unwell and they lie down with us and cuddle with us to comfort us. A lot of cats have mind control over humans.

  • I'd say dogs are superior to humans. They are capable of unconditional love, unlike most people.
