About the Term "Owner"
There is legitimate controversy about the correct term to use for the person responsible for the pet. The organization IDA is adamant that the word "guardian" should be used. The organizations AVMA and AKC support the word "owner". The ASPCA seems to use both terms randomly. PETA seems to use "owner" when they talk about negative stories and "guardian" with positive stories. Some people prefer caretaker, others feel that humans have cats and cats have humans.
We use the word "owner" on our forms when describing you, the person, because that is the term that everyone understands.
