Fur Baby

What does Fur Baby mean?

A pet with fur

A fur baby is a term used for a furry pet, usually a dog or a cat, that is treated by its owner as one would treat a human baby. This is often seen in people who don’t have children and satisfy their need to nurture by caring for their pets as if they were their own kids. Some people refer to these fur baby owners as pet parents.

Pet parents, much like human parents, will go to great lengths to care for their fur babies. They might dress them in costumes for Halloween, keep them warm with cute sweaters during winter, carry them around in their bags, or even put tiny shoes on their paws. However, not everyone who owns a fur baby goes to such extremes in caring for their pet.

Fur babies are not limited to just cats and dogs. Other furry animals like sugar gliders, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, and mice can also be considered fur babies if they are cared for in a similar fashion.
