Why We Love Our Pets


What is it about an animal that grabs our hearts and makes us fall in love with them? Is it the way a dog looks at you, wags it’s tail. and maybe tries to lick you (a kiss)? Or the way a cat comes up and brushes against you as if to say, you are my human? In either case, I believe we love our pets because they give us unconditional love and quickly become entrenched as our “children” – listening and following directions when we give them, and snuggling up to us when they sense we’ve had a rough day. They are always there for us – non-judgmental, giving us their undivided attention when we need to talk to them about our day – or problems. They also let us pet them – lowering our blood pressure (and theirs, too). This world would be an empty, forlorn place without our beloved pets.
