Status of live animals on Shabbos


Live animals are muktzeh, since one cannot 'use' them for any practical purpose on Shabbat; petting them is not considered 'use' in any practical sense. This includes domesticated pets.

One may handle these animals in certain ways for their own benefit, though, as I expect to explain during the next few days.

(Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 308:65)

Have a great day,
