Warm & Fuzzy

Eleven-year-old Jenna asked this question: "What is your favorite thing to do with your pet and why?"

These girls shared their thoughts:

I have two beagles named Winston and Ridley, and I love to run around outside with them, especially in the snow. I toss them snowballs for them to catch in the air, and it's a lot of fun.

Brushing my cat, Crystal, is so relaxing. Just seeing her pretty white fur makes me feel happy.
–Sophie, age 11, Colorado

I love to sit on a beanbag in my backyard with my guinea pig, Spot. He sits in my lap while I read a book, and I pet him the whole time.
–Laura, age 10, Texas

I have a fish named Blueberry and another one named Spring. When I put my finger up to their bowl, they follow my finger around. It's really fun to watch.
–Amber, age 11, Illinois

I love to cuddle with my big, furry cat named Mac. Whenever we snuggle together, he rolls over and stretches out, and I rub his fluffy tummy. I think he's the cuddliest cat in the world.
–Abbey, age 9, Iowa

I have a pet goat named Charlie. I've raised Charlie since he was a baby, and he follows me around everywhere. I love to let him out of his pen and watch him run around. He's so funny!
–Destiny, age 13, Indiana

I have a sheep named Rosie, and I've taught her a lot of tricks. We go to competitions together, and so far, she's won every single one. I donated the prize money to our local animal shelter so that I can help animals in need.
–Lola, age 11, Ohio

My dog, Jitterbug, is full of energy, and so am I! She's a greyhound, so every day we go for a run together. It's the highlight of my day.
–Sarah, age 12, California

I have two dogs, and their names are Hazelnut and Ladybug. My favorite thing to do with them is to take them to the beach and walk with them. I love to go swimming with them, too.
–Aubrey, age 11, Arizona

I have a pet parakeet named Peri. I like to play music for Peri because he always chirps along with it. It's really cute.
–Lauren-Clair, age 11, South Carolina

I have two cats named Suki and Zeus that sleep in my bed every night. After I come home from hockey practice and I'm in bed, I wait for them to crawl up by my side and snuggle with me until I fall asleep. They are the world's best teddy bears.
–Megan, age 10, New Jersey

I have a bunny named Blossomforth, and I like taking her for walks. That might sound a little funny, but she loves hopping around on her leash, and it's a great way for both of us to get exercise.
–Abby, age 13, Indiana

I have a leopard gecko named Roxy, and I have taught her some tricks. People might think it's hard to teach a gecko tricks, but Roxy is really smart. I've taught her how to do flips, and she'll "play dead" when I say it. She can even hang from my hand with her two front feet. She's an awesome pet.
–Katie, age 11, New Jersey

I don't have a pet, but my grandmother has an amazing golden retriever. Her name is Kasey, and I love to see her wag her tail and get excited when my family and I visit. Once she has calmed down, Kasey likes to sit next to me and put her paw on my lap, begging me to hold it. I love Kasey as if she were my own dog.
–Rosalie, age 13, Pennsylvania
