    Calling your animals "pets" insults them

    Calling animals 'pets' is insulting, academics claim - Telegraph

    "Domestic dogs, cats, hamsters or budgerigars should be rebranded as “companion animals” while owners should be known as “human carers”, they insist. Even terms such as wildlife are dismissed as insulting to the animals concerned – who should instead be known as “free-living”, the academics including an Oxford professor suggest.

    The animals I know have two choices, they can be referred to as pets or lunch.
