I KNOW there are going to be plenty of people out there who will disagree with me when I say I'm not a fan of the term 'fur baby' and what it stands for.
I've grown up on a farm and with pets the majority of my life and they surely do become a huge part of the family.
Are you a fan of the 'fur baby' craze?

Yes, I love my 'fur baby'
I am not a fan
I don't care
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
You take them to the beach and other family outings, they become a close companion and yes it's great to give the pet treats and presents like you would a human.
Yes they have fur and not that it's a surprise, but they're not an actual human baby.
Nothing makes me cringe more than when people refer to their pets as children or 'fur babies'.
According to the Urban Dictionary a 'fur baby' is a pet for someone who doesn't have kids.
I know of people who even let their 'fur babies' lick their lips like a real life kiss after being outside rolling in dirt and licking god knows what.
It's amazing to have such an affectionate relationship with a pet and love them as part of the family but I believe there is a limit that stops before a kiss or lick on the lips.
I would like to know what you think about the whole 'fur baby' craze.
Are you like me and wince when people refer to their pets as children or am I the crazy one?
