Take one look around this site, and you’ll see that our PEOPLEPets.com community is full of people who adore their pets. It’s Thanksgiving, and in the spirit of the day, we’d like to hear what you love about yours. Is it their unending loyalty? Is it the way they drool all over your couch? Or is it the way they can’t wait for you to get up in the morning? Or is it because, as Marilyn Monroe once said, “I like animals. If you talk to a dog or a cat it doesn’t tell you to shut up.” Tell us, why are you thankful for them?
