Who gets family pet in a divorce? How will the pet be equitably distributed?

Equitable Distribution of Personal Property

You are going through a divorce. All of the personal property has been divided by equitable distribution. You have agreed on what happens with the marital home, split the bank accounts and the pension. You were able to agree on a parenting-plan and time-sharing and on the amount of child support to be paid. But who gets the family cat, dog or other family pet?

Many times the pets are forgotten when dividing up the property in a dissolution and it can turn out to be a really important issue in the end when deciding who will get the love of the family pet(s).
