They drive us crazy yet keep us sane, these pets of ours, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. After a brief hiatus, the Independent’s annual Pets & Animals issue has returned, this time with introductions of cats and dogs who found their forever homes during the pandemic and profiles of a few “employee” animals who work their tails off to keep us safe and free of pests. Next year, look for profiles of more exotic pets (think scales and feathers), and in the meantime, watch out for furballs.
