Pets or familiars?

We were encouraged this morning to pick our dream pet. Most people chose cats, of varying degrees of exoticism, or dogs, of varying degrees of normality. I chose a phoenix. They said I can’t have one because of the fire risk. So I chose ashes. They said it wasn’t a pet. I don’t want a cat or a dog. I won’t conform to their dreariness, despondent or not. So no pet.
