werewolf and pets

What would the ideal pet for a werewolf be?  Can werewolves have pets at all?

We’ve talked about werewolves and animals before, and the answer is yes, werewolves can have pets.  The dynamics between the werewolf and the animal will however be different than they would be between the pet and a human.  Most animals that are pets will show extreme obedience to a werewolf.  They will typically have ears or tails lowered while in the werewolf’s presence. Typically they will avoid eye contact as well, in an attempt to avoid a confrontation with the werewolf.  Animals are very empathetic and can sense the power of the werewolf, their instincts will therefore steer them to protect themselves in these simple ways that give a visual cue to the werewolf that the animal does not pose a threat.  As werewolf967 has pointed out in the past however, I’d also like to agree with him in that this does not mean that an animal – even a pet – won’t defend himself if it feels threatened.  A good example is the dog, which is not so afraid of the werewolf that it wouldn’t defend it’s pack, owner, or life.

Werewolves can therefore have pets.  The pet relationship is most successful if it is a pet that the werewolf had before he/she started transforming.  This is because the relationship between the two has already formed and there is already a bond.  At first the pet will be leery of the new smells and emotions coming from its owner, but over time, the relationship between the two can heal and blossom as the pet realizes you are still you.  Getting a pet after you have already become a werewolf is a little more difficult.  You will have to earn that animal’s trust, which can be done, but is difficult.  The most difficult part of the process is forming that deep bond of love which is often formed between pet and owner.  The pet will easily give you his respect, but getting his love will be more difficult.  Difficult, but not impossible.

It should be noted however that there are some pets that are very unlikely to get along with the werewolf at all no matter how hard you try, including many species of birds – especially parrots.

    I have seen proof of this first hand, there is a dog in my neighborhood that really likes people. I tried to pet him one day and he put his tail between his legs and walked off a bit.

    There are some scenes of dog-werewolf interaction in the 2010 Wolfman. More in the novelisation by Jonathan Maberry (which is REALLY good, I recommend it to EVERYONE!!!!)
