Our furry friends can offer more than just friendship and companionship. If we pay attention, we can gain some financial insight from them.
Usually when I write about pets, it's to chronicle the expenses they pose: "Will your pet bankrupt you?" and "What your fat pet is costing you" are just two recent examples.
As every pet owner knows, though, that's just one part of sharing a life with the furry (or feathered or finned or scaled) set. They're our companions, our comforters and sometimes our comedians.
