Bob's pet lizard and UNNATURAL

A detail probably no one noticed in Mirka Andolfo's Unnatural irked me. Set in a world of anthropomorphic animals under an oppressive Catholic theocracy, the lead character's pet is a lizard:

Insignificant, right? Except I did this in Horndog well over a decade ago if you recall. Back in 2003, I had Freddy the Bunny purchase a pet lizard because, in a animal-people world, what is a dog gonna have for a pet? Because it looks weird in Disney cartoons when you have Pluto and Goofy, who are the same species, but one's anthropomorphic and the other is a pet. So I swapped dogs and cats for lizards. Which is what Andolfo's comic appears to have done. Maybe it's a coincidence.
