Who doesn’t love pets? They’re great companions and stress relievers. Cuddling and playing with them after a long day can wash away all the tension we have in our body. We love our pets so much that we often take our affections to the next level. But we have to admit, there are times when we can be overly attached humans to our fur babies. Here are some signs you’re overly attached pet owner:

Even if they’re not human, you treat your pets as if they’re part of the family. You eat meals with them on the dining table, you let them sleep on the same bed—everything family members do at home.

2. You talk to them all the time.

Whether you’re at home or the outdoors, you don’t pick the time or the place to talk to your pets. You don’t care if other people see (and judge) you, either. Even if you don’t fully understand each other, a response is all you need after all that baby talk/

3. You have matching outfits.

Matching clothes and accessories with your pet has become normal. You look for similar looking outfits in stores or make one on your own. You even give them their own wardrobe!

4. You teach them how to act like humans.

Pets are trainable, so you can teach them to do what humans do: flushing the toilet, switching off the lights, and even working out. How awesome is that?

5. You do almost everything with them.
