Pets and working animals

Will there be any pets and working animals?

  • Dogs for hunting and guarding
  • Horses for riding and pulling carts
  • Cows for plowing the field
  • Cats for removing rats from the fields and kitchens
  • Pigeons for transporting messages

Besides those more common ones (at least for Europeans) the more exotic ones like elephants, lions, camels, donkeys, falcons and so on would also be cool.
