A big thanks to my dark and twisty twin @Siobhan for tagging me! I totally wanted to steal her Caraval idea, but I suppose I need to be original…

National Love Your Pet Day – Our Favorite Literary Pets

In honor of National Love Your Pet Day on February 20th we interrupt our normal snarkiness to appreciate our furry companions.

Kona is Jess’ 4 yr old idiot who enjoys laying front of heaters and carrying three balls in her mouth at a time. She communicates through grunts, earning her the nicknames pig and monster.

Carver is Teagan’s 8 year old ball of fluff. This cat is 100% sass, rules our house, and can be found stealing and hoarding important things like car keys. Carver loves sunbathing and can often be found at the lake plotting death to all birds.

 

 

We all know that pets are often the best part of novels. They bring humor, cuteness and never ending love for us all to enjoy. And TBH their deaths are often the ones that hit us the hardest. We don’t know about you guys but we are still crying buckets over the loss of Marley, Hedwig and the adorable dogs from Where the Red Fern Grows.

Below are some of our favorite literary pets.


Hedwig – Harry Potter

We can’t lie, guys. The loss of Hedwig in Deathly Hallows still makes us tear up a bit (or a lot…). Who knew you could love an owl so much?!!!!?! J.K. ROWLING WHY?!!


Fleetfoot – Throne of Glass

Dorian sealed his place in my heart when he gifted Aelin with Fleetfoot. Not only is Fleetfoot adorable and loyal – she’s also badass and fights evil monsters. And when she got sad because Nehemia died and couldn’t play fetch with her anymore? #Dead


Kaura – Tainted Accords

I was mad at Olina for running off over and over again, but I felt so much worse for Kaura than Jovan! Who leaves their puppy? And the ever loyal Kaura remembered her every time. What a doll. And she defends Olina at every brutal turn. This dog <3.


Abraxos – Throne of Glass

Manon and Abraxos are end game for us. He is the epitome of tough; going from the bait dragon to the ultimate warrior. And the attitude on this guy! Just to mess with her, he falls off of the cliffs, instead of jumping. Show-off, just like his momma.


Church – The Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, and Dark Artifices

Oh, Church. We will never tire of you and hope that you appear in every Clare series. But does anyone else ask themselves: how many lives does Church actually have? Or: where can I get myself an immortal cat? It takes one badass feline to survive the brutal Shadowhunter world.


Chip and Dale (the spiders)  Wicked Abyss

Teagan never thought the day would come when she would include a pair of spiders on best pets list. But honestly, Chip and Dale are epic and deserve a spot on this list. They are schemers who do not stand for alpha male’s asshat ways and support their human in all revenge endeavors. #SmashThePatriarchy
