  Technology may also be poised to change the way we relate to animals—by removing the living, breathing ones from our homes.

  The main threat to pets is not social media, per se, but rather robots and virtual FarmVille-like animals.

  In Japan, some owners of Sony’s AIBO robotic dog even hold funerals when these devices are beyond repair.

  Our concept of a pet gets shaped at an early age.

  Previous generations born and bred with dogs and cats might dismiss robopets as mere toys.
