22 Pics Proving That Pets Leave a Special Mark on Our Lives

A recent survey revealed that 70% of households own a pet. And it’s easy to understand why so many people love having furry friends with them. Aside from showering their humans with affection, they also serve as inspiration for many things, including artwork. And the literal marks they leave inside the house only prove how much they’ve become part of the family.
