About This Quiz

If you've ever seen the movie "The Secret Life of Pets," then you're probably familiar with some of the adorable and funny talking house pets. Even though pets can't actually speak in real life, each one of them certainly has their own type of personality. Pets actually tend to express some of their best and worst traits through their subtle behavior and actions, but there are other pets that are much more vocal about this.

Dogs are a prime example of the latter, as these pets love to run, jump and be adventurous with their owners. In fact, dogs are always up for just about anything, such as playing fetch, going out for a walk or watching some TV. On the other hand, cats are considered to be more independent and moody. But luckily, cats don't need much maintenance, as many of them are great at taking care of themselves. There are also other types of pets, such as fish, hamsters, snakes, rabbits and guinea pigs. But today, we're not going to focus on how you take care of pets. Rather, you're going to become a pet! So take our adorable quiz now to find out what pet name matches your personality!
