[Error: unknown template qotd]

I've heard all the terms used, working in the veterinary industry. Most often, 'Mom' or 'Dad' is used in reference to the patient's owner/guardian. As long as an animal is properly loved and cared for, I don't think the terminology matters.

the term "guardian" (or "cat-mom") conveys - as the question suggests - a more balanced idea of the relationship. there are those who for whom the term "owner" seems to give them "permission" to do what they like to the animal.

for *good* pet keepers I agree it doesn't matter - but not everyone who "owns" an animal is a good pet keeper.
