An animal kept for amusement or companionship.

While you may not want a pet that isn't a companion others like them for the amusement, like watching fish to relax or reptiles, frogs, insects. Pet is simply any animal you keep for selfish reasons(companion,looks, amusements) and has no other workable purpose(food source, work animal).
