To be treated as an emissary from another realm and respected guest within human society.

To be provided with dutiful, enlightened and interested care by its human companions.

To be provided adequate protection and shelter from severe temperatures, weather or otherwise unhealthy environmental conditions.

To be protected to the keeper's best ability from parasites such as ticks and fleas or other biological pests.

To be protected from an existence of chronic boredom or loneliness, and provided with toys or other diversions which provide stimulation during those times when the animal must be left alone.
