Cat Moms And Granddogs: Your Multi-Species Family 7

Today, a birthday party might be for a child, parent, friend, or even someone’s beloved pet. Andrea Laurent-Simpson is a lecturer in the Department of Sociology at Southern Methodist University, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how our pets became our “fur babies” and what that tells us about the dynamics of what it is to be a modern family. Her book is called “Just Like Family: How Companion Animals Joined the Household.”
