furparent
 n.— «Best of all, there’s a nice seven-page subset out of the “People I Detest” chapter devoted to people with “furkids” or, to use her other neologism, “furparents.” These people don’t have pets. They have furry children on special diets, with special outfits, weekly vet visits and daily caregivers. She has a pretty good go at people who treat their pets better than humans.» —“On your mark, get set, get angry” by Christine Sismondo Globe and Mail (Toronto, Canada) Apr. 21, 2007.
