Transcript SNIPS & SNAILS., Dogs and cats are the traditional pets, but animals like iguanas, snakes and turtles are no longer considered as 1 strange pets to have anymore. j -- Courtney Frantz, senior Indist major j Pets are there when other friends aren't. They give a lick on the cheek, a loving purr or a perky chirp to show they care. With the daily stress college students experience and the relaxation that pets offer, it's no wonder they are so important to us. A senior RTV major, Scott Northcutt is 25 years old and has four cats as pets. "My parents wanted them, then they stopped taking care of them so I took them. I've always been a dog guy," he said. Northcutt fell in love with his cats -- Buster, Misty, Ginger, and Whisky. He said they each have their own personalities that make them unique and even more lovable. "My male, Buster, he's like a dog. He watches the gate, even if it's raining. If he could bark, he would. Ginger loves attention. She'll come meet me at the truck, just so she'll be the first one that I pet. I helped to give birth to Ginger. I had to tie the umbilical cord on this girl. It was a moving experience for sure," he said with a smile. Millions of college students share similar feelings with Northcutt. Pets just offer so much. Not only are they a lot of fun, but they offer a companionship that is often incomparable to any other type of relationship. Dogs and cats are the traditional pets, but animals like iguanas, snakes and turtles are no longer considered as strange pets to have anymore. Courtney Frantz, a senior Indist. major, says that she got her first turtle for Christmas. "Turtlekins was really finicky at first, and was even scared of her own shadow. Eventually she became a friendly turtle, and two years later my sister bought Turtlekins a companion - Big Mama," she said. No matter how students get their pets, they keep showing up in the hearts and homes of many students. Most college students admit owning a pet makes coming home at the end of a grueling day much more bearable. - Ivana Segvic
