animal-oriented features from sporadic early appearances in 2000 to
prolific installations in 2016, noting, “When ‘pet spas’ were introduced

seemed like another flash-in-the-pan perk. But they’ve not only hung on

parents giving their charges a special space of their own, often even
equipped with an en suite bath.
