Pets – How Important are They Nowadays
Pets are very important to so many of use these days. Many people have pets and keep them in the home so that they can always be close by. Pets bring us so much joy and happiness. They make us smile and laugh at the quirky animal things that they do.
Some pets are extremely smart and they know what we are asking them to do, whether they chose to obey or not is another story. Most of the time, they want to obey us because they want our attention and love just as much as we want theirs. At times they may be like having children for some of us. We love to look after them and give them the favorite foods and toys that they want to pay with.
There is something that is so satisfying for us as humans to make our animals comfortable and happy. We care for them, love and nurture them and receive something back from them. They give us psychological support in times when we are low. They give us someone to love, and very often we do feel that they love us back. They have little personalities too and feelings that can be sad and happy at different times just like us.
Some pets also have the remarkable ability to know how we are feeling. Their behavior can change as our behavior changes. Sometimes they can even mirror our behaviors. They are able to come and physically sit with us to give us comfort when we need to be close to something living. People who have lost their human companion may find some comfort in having a pet close by to sleep near them, eat near them and take walks with them. We develop deep bonds with our pets and spend a great amount of time, energy and money on them.
Some people cannot imagine their lives without a pet by their side. They depend on us and we enjoy caring for them as we would a child. They are our friends through all circumstances. They won’t talk back to us and even if we are not nice to them at times, perhaps if we happen to in a bad mood; they still remain our friends through it all.
Having pets is a wonderful experience and good for our health. Blood pressures may lower from the level of relaxation they allow us to have. They uplift us and give us reason to keep living and bring entertainment to our lives regularly. We marvel at the things that they do and the unique animal languages that they speak. Having a pet is just plain good for the soul.
