With so many kinds of animals to choose from, whatever pet you have really says a lot about you— especially if you're from Montana. Here's a personality breakdown based on your critter companion:

Dog (big)

In Montana the size of a dog matters. Dogs are needed for herding sheep, for hunting and for other purposes that little dogs just can't do. If you have a big dog, you might be an outdoorsy person or you might work on a ranch. You also might be pretty tough, so nobody better mess with you or your pooch.

Dog (small)

If you have a little dog, you might be more of a cuddler than a hunter. You get the advantage of having a companion with you on your beautiful walks through Montana, but without the hassle of a large oaf of a dog slobbering on everything. You're probably laidback and fun.


There are two kinds of cat people in Montana, the bookish intellectual who maybe lives in Missoula, or the latte-sipping yuppie who almost-certainly lives in Bozeman. Both of these types make Instagram pages just for their cats, just so all their friends can stay updated on what Ms. Floofy had for breakfast this morning.


You might be a quirky oddball or you might just be keeping a rat long enough to feed it to another animal you own, which is next on the list.


You're a dedicated pet owner, as owning a snake requires some effort, especially to get started. You may have a unique perspective and likely have no shortage of wit. Oh, and don't take this the wrong way, but you might be a tiny bit of a sadist lol


You might be a fan of the cartoon characters Bugs Bunny, Roger Rabbit or Buster Baxter from Arthur. Bunnies are easy to take care of, so you might be a minimalist type who keeps it simple.


You listen to country and you have a big backyard, you also might show off how you taught your pig how to play soccer or some other crazy pig talent.

Banned Pets by States

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Everyday items that our pets love more than their expensive toys

We spend a fortune on brand new toys for our pets. Chances are that they will completely destroy those at some point. But before that destruction happens, there are some normal, everyday items that we have in our homes that our pets would rather play with. The best thing...these "toys" are usually way less expensive.
