As much loved family members, pets hold a very special place in our hearts. Here are twenty books, both fiction and non fiction, featuring pets or at least those animals that we would like to consider as pets. Cats in particular would potentially sneer at being labelled and I hesitate to call Terry Pratchett’s Greebo a pet, but then again, he is a big soft ball of fur to Nanny Ogg. We have a few unusual animals in the mix here, an alligator and a hawk are included alongside the more traditional dogs, cats, fish, and hamsters. There is a whole heap of love to be found within the pages, but occasionally a few tears too. One thing is for sure, the animals within this collection are absolutely fabulous (even Greebo!).
