The saying goes “dogs are a man’s best friend”. Well it seems you could say that for a lot of animals: dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, gerbils, etc.
I have two dogs and one kitten and I love them to death. Early on in life when I didn’t have many friends, my pets held me down. These fur babies through the years showed me unconditional love. I’m so grateful for being around animals as a child and early adulthood.
Many don’t like some or all animals and that’s fine. However, when you need a companion that can be low maintenance, doesn’t talk back, listens and loves, consider animals.
Mine are truly like family. I protect them, laugh when they are good, cry when they hurt, and am grateful for them. I name them, look out for them, spoil them with their favorite foods, and simply treat then well. We should treat all half as good as we treat our fur babies. You wouldn’t be whining and crying about people betraying you or not wanting any friends. You should already know to miss me with that talk.
I’m always grateful to have pets to love. It makes life more worthwhile to have someone to love that genuinely loves you in return. I wish this for all.
