Our pets are seen as a reflection of ourselves, and people reckon they can glean information about our personality, lifestyle and temperament from the types of pets we own.
And while this isn't always true, especially when it comes to dog owners, there's always at least one person who lives up to the stereotype in each group of owners.
People who own snakes aren't always creepy, but there's always that one guy who thinks it's fine to make out with his salmonella-infested serpent when people are over.
And then there are the people who own a bunch of cats or ferrets and refuse to acknowledge that their house always smells like animal urine.
But at least they actually own their pets and don't smell like they're covered in their own urine, that's when you start getting into a whole new level of creepiness.
Of course, you don't have to be homeless to be a totally deranged pet owner, just ask the crazy cat lady who can't remember exactly how many kitties she has roaming around in her house.
And no matter what anybody tells you human ownership is not okay and never was, so when your Gimp tells you he's yours to do with what you will he's speaking figuratively.
Take it from comic artist extraordinaire Caldwell Tanner and let the Gimps roam free!
