About This Quiz

Nothing teaches us more about love and compassion than our first pets. Along with the responsibility that came with pet ownership, we learned how to view the world through another creature's eyes. Once you tell us about your first pet and your love for animals, we think we'll be able to guess which one you called your own. 

When you think back to your first pet, there's no doubt that you are filled with waves of nostalgia. Whether your first pet was the one who ate your Brussels sprouts for you or the one who kept you entertained for hours, it left you with a lot more life experience than you might realize. By the time we finish learning about you and your relationship with the animal kingdom, we'll know which pet first made you feel loved. 

As you scamper or slither your way through our questions, channel all the memories you hold about your first pet. Seeing how you feel about other animals and the way you cared for your first will let us know which one you had. Will our guess be in the right aisle of the pet store, or will we get it wrong? Take the quiz to find out!
