1. Some of us were bred for sport, but one of my kind was bred specifically to accompany miners underground to detect poisonous gasses in the shaft.

2. Those bred in captivity tend to make better pets and are considered preferable to those caught in the wild.


3. I came to my height of popularity during the Victorian Age in England around 1875 when Queen Victoria began giving us as gifts to visiting heads of state.

4.  I was believed to be an agent of the devil, and to possess magical powers. Pope Gregory IX declared me to be a "Diabolical creature”.

5. One of my favorite activities is to climb on objects so I can be in the sun.

6. I will quickly find that my most comfortable spot to sleep in is also YOUR most comfortable spot to be in, whether it's a bed, large bean bag chair, or couch. 

7. I am welcomed anywhere you live, be it a rented house, flat, or apartment.

8. In the wild, I am a nuisance to farmers. I have been known to hide in excess of 60 pounds of grain to feed myself through the winter.

9. Other than people, I am the most widely distributed mammal. 

10. I am easy to feed and very hardy with few health problems.
