Exploring the rarely discussed dynamic of pethood, Aiyana Goodfellow speaks of reimagined relations between species, starting with the seedlings, expanding into the roots and blossoming into growth. The relationships we have with animals that are "colonized into pethood" reveal the kind of humans we really are. A balance of theory and practice, this book is a guide to unlearning the oppressive tendencies within all of us. Filled with the hope, passion, and rage of a young Black, queer writer, Aiyana asserts that to be a radical companion is to connect with the animality in all of us.
