    I had a pet skunk, the school bus ran over his head, my neighbor gave him to me he was "de-stunked" I miss him.

    Are you aware how much Kitty litter costs?
    Now I wouldn't begrudge dog owners the tax break.
    You must have felineaphobia.

    From the article, the title seems a bit disengenuous... but what else is new..

    Will they require Social Security numbers for Fido and Missy to prevent people claiming pets they don't actually have??? Will puppy mills spring up so people can get the extra deduction? That's more for a pet than for a child.....I love my dog ...and I'll love him more if I can deduct $3500 for him....But seriously some people have waaaaay too much time on their hands.

    $3,500 would be a sweet deduction but to your first point, I have to agree. How would they require an individual to prove pet ownership?
    Receipts I suppose but that would lead to much fraud too.
    Is this even true.
