How Obsessed With Your Pet Are You?

  1. Wait, do you actually even have a real, live, breathing animal in your home?! Because you need to LOVE YOUR PET MORE! Unless, like, your pet is a fish or an ant on an ant farm, in which case it’s totally reasonable not to be super-obsessed with it.

  2. You’re mildly obsessed with your pet. You give it the love and care it needs, and enjoy its company, but without going totally over the top. Most people might not even realize you have a pet, but the good news is there’s still time for your obsession with your fuzzy (or feathery, or scaly) friend to grow!

You don’t quite teeter on the edge of insanity when it comes to expressing your love for him/her — though you’ve often come close — but you couldn’t imagine life without the tail-wagging or purring affection you’re lucky enough to have each day.
