Show category in pie chart

I am trying to make my pie chart show the categories (Cats, Dogs, etc. in my below code) instead of the numerical data, where the DataMarkers would be.  I can see the categories if I turn on the legend, but I prefer to see the categories in the pie itself, rather than in a separate legend

Here is the code I'm using:

            SfChart chart = new SfChart(this);

            CategoryAxis primaryAxis = new CategoryAxis();
            primaryAxis.Title.Text = "Animals";
            chart.PrimaryAxis = primaryAxis;

            NumericalAxis secondaryAxis = new NumericalAxis();
            secondaryAxis.Title.Text = "Number";
            chart.SecondaryAxis = secondaryAxis;

            ObservableArrayList Ratings = new ObservableArrayList();

            Ratings.Add(new ChartDataPoint("Cats", 3));
            Ratings.Add(new ChartDataPoint("Dogs", 5));
            Ratings.Add(new ChartDataPoint("Birds", 50));
            Ratings.Add(new ChartDataPoint("Fish", 20));
            Ratings.Add(new ChartDataPoint("Other", 120));

            PieSeries pieSeries = new PieSeries()
                DataSource = Ratings,

            chart.Legend.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;

Also, is it possible to show both the categories and the numerical data, with the categories on the outside of the pie, and the numerical values inside?
