Villagers should be able to have pets. The pets follow and protect them, like they do with the player, and the villagers can make them sit down if they are in a house.

More could be expanded on this...

Just an idea.

The villagers need better AI themselves before they get pets. And they have the golems to protect them.

Villagers having cats would be a decent idea.  Considering the only (above ground) hostile mobs that Iron Golems don't defend against are creepers, it would make a kind of sense that villagers would keep cats as pets.

A topic that I very much like.  It makes me sad to see it dormant.

...How does "golems don't fight creepers" sensibly translate to "villagers keep cats"?

I demand a pirate villager with a parrot.

Golems have a weakness (we can reasonably assume they don't attack creepers for fear of blowing up), villagers choose something that bypasses that weakness.
Makes sense to me.

Because cats are somehow immune to creeper explosions...?

I'm just assuming you didn't know, but cats scare off creepers.  That's pretty much the only reason to have them, as they don't fight.

BECAUSE Cats drive creepers away, it was added in the snapshot updates. Creepers will not go within a certain distance of cats (I think 8 blocks)

Huh...Man with diamond sword does nothing. Cats send them running. Oh Minecraft, you so strange...

Makes sense then. Question now is will the golems protect the cats as well...

Villagers could also have pet dogs that they can feed, breed, an take care of in general.
