Definitions and meaning of pet
IPA(key): /pɛt/, [pʰɛt], [pʰɛʔt]
Attested since the 1500s in the sense "indulged child" and since the 1530s in the sense "animal companion". From Scots and dialectal Northern English, of unclear origin. Perhaps a back-formation of petty, pety(“little, small”), a term formerly used to describe children and animals (e.g. pet lambs). Alternatively, perhaps a borrowing of Scottish Gaelicpeata, from Old Irishpetta, peta(“pet, lap-dog”), of uncertain (possibly pre-Indo-European) origin. Compare peat(“pet, darling, woman”).
The verb is derived from the noun.
An animal kept as a companion.
(by extension) Something kept as a companion, including inanimate objects. (pet rock, pet plant, etc.)
One who is excessively loyal to a superior and receives preferential treatment.
Any person or animal especially cherished and indulged; a darling.
1847, Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights, chapter XIX:
At first she sat silent; but that could not last: she had resolved to make a pet of her little cousin, as she would have him to be; and she commenced stroking his curls, and kissing his cheek, and offering him tea in her saucer, like a baby.
