Nowadays many people own pets in their homes such as dogs, cats, mice, fish and even sometimes weird pets like snakes and scorpions which they considered them as a member of the family.

In England, there is an old tale which states that if the root is chewed catnip would "make the most gentle person fierce and quarrelsome". (p. 99, Hedgemaids and Fairy Candles. The Lives and Lore of North American Wildflowers) Catnip contains a "terpene-like chemical , nepata lactone, which tends to repel insects" (p.577, The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Wildflowers, Eastern Region) and can be used to protect other plants.

People have yet to realize that their favorite type of deodorant or those good-smelling fragrances they like to put on were once tested on animals. These animals are forced to swallow or inhale large quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin (Peta). Many times the results of animal tests are often not applicable to humans, but even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you. Many testing centers keep such animals out of their natural surroundings, until time to experiment on them. Throughout that time these animals become so unadapt to their new surroundings, they become less likely to return to their natural state which gives those experimenting more reason to test them.
