The role of President of the United States is a very serious one. With so much responsibility, one might not think of our Presidents are pet owners, however almost every US president has owned a pet of some kind. In a few cases, our former presidents have owned more than one animal! The most common Presidential pet has been dogs, but other animals have also occupied the White House including James Madison's macaw, Teddy Roosevelt's rat, and even Calvin Coolidge's lion cubs! Having an animal around can be a great stress reliever as well as comic relief. Surely our presidents knew this, and loved and appreciated their feathered or furry friends.
