Create a program that instantiates at least one Pet object.
Every time the program is opened, the status of the Pet is assessed and output to the console.
The user should be given options in handling their Pet (i.e. naming it, feeding it, grooming it, etc.).
You will be graded on the following:
- does the pet object and its properties persist on subsequent loads?
- do the actions the user takes change the pet's properties?
- is your program user friendly (clear instruction, error handling, etc.)?
Java allows you to serialize objects fairly easily as long as you plan ahead.
