Animals in TV series can speak, make gourmet meals, and even perform detective investigations. We adore them for being cute and smart, and after watching an animal-featured movie, we immediately have the urge to buy a pet. But once we find one, we soon realize they can’t cook like the rat from Ratatouille, nor do they have a wonderful sense of humor like the guinea pig from G-Force. The veil of charm falls down, causing people to abandon their pets — and unfortunately, this happens often and is a cruel statistic nowadays.
