What’s a Better Spot For a Pet Than the Owner's Shoulder?

 When one thinks about a shoulder pet, what comes to mind is usually a parrot or some other type of tiny bird. Occasionally, a cat. But as it turns out, the shoulder of their humans is the favorite resting spot for many pets out there, of all kinds. According to Milly DeVoss, a certified feline training & behavior specialist, cats, for example, like to be in high places and close to the scent of their owners, so “shoulder perching is a natural behavior that accomplishes both.” That seems to make perfect sense, and whether these pets are regular shoulder animals, or just caught in a rare moment, it sure is a cute sight!
