How pawly did you do?
IF you answered mostly As . . . You have a no-nonsense attitude to owning a pet while putting your partner’s needs first. Whatever animal you have, they know their place in the pecking order.
Mostly Bs . . . You love your pet but you love your partner more. Having an animal in your life helps bring you closer together but they don’t rule the roost.
Mostly Cs . . . Does your partner ever comment that your pet gets more attention from you than they do? Try to consider their feelings more, as you are putting your relationship at risk.
Mostly Ds . . . Your life revolves around indulging your pet and you don’t give a second thought to the other human in your relationship. Try to remember they exist. It’s a miracle you even have a partner.
