The only pets I’ve ever had were hamsters when I was a kid. Though I love them dearly, I do wonder if owning hamsters was more traumatizing than anything else. One of my go-to stress dreams is of hamsters running amok in the house and me desperately trying to contain them.
Also the first hamster I ever named was Saavik. #nerd
I’ve noticed that in a lot of my recent stories/novels/wips/whatever-the-heck-you-want-to-call-them, my characters have had animal companions. Mostly dogs (probably because I want a dog).
Recently, I’ve gotten sort of re-obsessed with all the different kind of animals that exist on this planet, just like a 3rd grader. So I thought I’d compile some that I thought would make some sick (or sweet) animal companions.

As kids, everyone is obsessed with everyone’s favorite animal so…..what’s yours??? I’m personally have been a bit penguin obsessed lately.
Leopard seals are so cute but so CREEPY just because you don’t expect them to have mouths…like that. Like you go from “this is the most adorable animal on this planet” to “oh wow this can shred me” in 0.5 seconds. SAND CATS ARE ADORABLE AND I LOVE THEM. They’re just amazing little critters.
For some reason I find the concept of villains having very unvillainous-looking pets really funny. Like instead of a snake or a cat or something appropriate, the guy just has a gerbil or something XD
It’s hard to pick a favorite animal, but foxes and crows would definitely be up there! Penguins are amazing, though, definitely a great choice for a favorite
