    if you are choosing just 1 pet, and you have 8 kittens and 6 puppies, that is 14 choices. if you were choosing 1 dog and 1 kitten, then you would have 6*8= 48 choices. this question says "1 pet" , so 14 choices.

    there is some ambiguity... if we assume there is no difference between the puppies and kittens, then there is only 2 choices: either a dog or a cat. But I would go with 14 and argue the puppies are different (and also the kittens)
