Growing up in the Bay Area, not to mention ten years spent living in San Francisco, which could arguably be considered a “mecca” of pet fanatics, it has always seemed to me an obvious fact of life that pets are to be treasured and treated with the same respect as their people. In some cases people treat pets with even more respect than their fellow human beings. While I am a dedicated (and perhaps mildly obsessed) cat owner, I feel that society focusing too much energy on one animal may cost many others their lives. In particular, I would like to discuss the placing of pets in homes and the standards which govern this process.
