Today, April 10th marks National Pet Day.
Pet owners know how much their animal friend improves their quality of life.
Pets are a great way to beat the blues. Our emotions don’t just affect our mental state but our entire body. Not only are they known to they offer unconditional love, but they may also give their owners a sense of purpose, which can be crucial for those feeling down in the dumps. Animals that are guaranteed to make you smile. On an emotional level, owning a pet can decrease depression, stress and anxiety. It can also lower your blood pressure, improve your immunity and even decrease your risk of heart attack and stroke.
It is also true that an animal is the best medicine against loneliness. He is the best teacher to teach the sense of responsibility. The best coach to help you understand your emotions.
As some of you already know our family has a couple of pets. We have a dog, a cat and a turtle. The way animals interact with each other is fascinating.
This is my cat. She is amazing. She follows me everywhere. She doesn’t like to be held but likes to touch us with a paw when she lies down next to us. She takes offence if I dare go to the bathroom alone, which is how this picture came to be. She drinks from the dog’s water bowl at every opportunity.
Cat owner issues:
When one really has to pee in the early hours of the morning, but doesn’t want the cat to think it’s breakfast time because she won’t let you fall back asleep, so one lies in bed and suffers for 15 minutes until the alarm goes off, at which point she uses one’s lower abdomen as a springboard to leap out of bed. Every single time.
Because laughter is good for everyone!
