Yesterday we talked about support animals on planes. I heard someone say the other day that all pets can be considered therapy pets. Isn’t there truth in that statement? Don’t you find comfort in your cat, for example? He brings you joy, calms you, makes you laugh (and we all know that laughter is therapeutic).
Your cat is good company, she gives you a reason to come home. When you have a pet you must care for it and when you care for another human being or animal it feeds your need to be needed.
A pet can make you feel good about yourself because she loves and appreciates you unconditionally. And there’s nothing like sharing life and living with another being even if it’s a furry species and wants to share your pizza or your cookie-crumble ice cream and your bed.
