You don’t have to live in a castle to have a gargoyle as a pet. In fact, many commoners enjoy these wonderful and cost-effective companions. They are small, don’t shed, and require little attention. While frightening in appearance, they are excellent watch dogs and loyal pets. They don’t beg for food, but instead consume up to a pound of stones, rocks, or pebbles a day. It is especially convenient if you live within close distance to a stone quarry or even a mountain. Gargoyles are exceptional at taking care of themselves and prefer to stay out in the elements. They make their nests in fireplaces amongst charred logs and sooty stones, and use kindling fires to keep their eggs warm.
