    Who Keeps a Pet After a Divorce?

    Who Keeps a Pet After a Divorce?

    Pets are an important part of our lives and many of us consider them a part of the family. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Association, 67% of households in the U.S. own a pet. During a divorce, couples have to make tough decisions about child custody, alimony, dividing property, and about who gets to live with the family pet. This conflict can be solved outside of court through mediation and a visitation schedule could also be drafted so that all parties can still see and be involved in the pet’s life. However, there are times when an agreement can’t be reached, and a judge must step in and decide who gets custody.

It is the latter that seems to be the prevalent attitude nowadays. Yet, there is more behind simply sharing one’s life with, as is mostly the case, four-legged fluffs of furry joy, cats and dogs.

    Dogs are a very social animal, so it’s not surprising to see that the relationship with man grew stronger over the years.

My kids couldn't agree more, which is why we play, "Try not to laugh" ALL. THE. TIME. Included in this game is watching tons and tons of videos of both people and animal fails; and honestly, we would agree in saying that hilarious animal moments and funny pet fails are by and far the most entertaining!

    11 Most Well Paid Animal Actors In History

    Don’t we all wish that we were the owners of well paid animal actors? It turns out that some animals make a lot more than humans; and believe it or not, some of them are millionaires! However, being a highly paid animal actor isn’t as easy as it sounds. With millions of other animals up against them, the chances of being one of the top paid is pretty slim. It takes a lot of hard work and training for these animals to be considered before they are cast as a role in a movie, and this starring role in movies is reserved for only the best of the best animals. With that being said, some catch the break they deserve, and wind up making their owners rich in the process.
