In answers to Brian jackson's question in TF V2#96 concerning the muktzah
status of pets I am quoting from the Halachos of Muktzah, by Rabbi Yisroel
Bodner and available through Feldheim Publishers.

"Pets are considered functionless (playing with them or looking at them is
not considered a function) and are therefore, totally muktzah on Shabbos and
Yom Tov.
