Seven months ago, I had the luck of finding a grey, striped, crazy, living furball.
It’s safe to say that my days from then on have never been the same.
So, as my good deed for the day, let me share some of the reasons why I think adopting a pet (dog or cat) is one of the most awesome things you can do for yourself.
Let’s start! Meeeee-yaaaaw!
1. Pets are GOOD LISTENERS
Just got your heartbroken? Just killed someone?
Hey, your friendly, non-judging pet is here for you to listen.
C’mon… you can let it all out with them. They will even cry with you.
2. Pets make us LAUGH
They are funny as hell. Just check out Youtube and you’d see that more than half of the funny videos there are made by pet owners and their crazy pets.
3. Pets can be a cute alternative to an ALARM CLOCK
If you want a dog, prepare to get wet. In my case, I prepare for scratches. Sweet.
4. Pets teach us RESPONSIBILITY
It’s like taking care of a baby… a wild and crazy baby, just to turn up the ante.
5. Pets teach us DISCIPLINE
They crave for routine. So make sure that you can give them an organized and timely schedule of… feeding.
6. Pets show us INDEPENDENCE
They do their own thing… 90% of the time.
You can’t tell them what to do, unless, you have food. (And sometimes, even that, fails. Haha)
7. Pets helps us APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS
They can see beauty in every thing. No matter how little or invaluable to us.
Take my cat, for example, her favorite plaything? Crumpled paper.
8. Pets strengthen our PATIENCE
I know they are cute, but they are also capable of:
– making incessant noise at 2 am in the morning
– smearing poop everywhere
– destroying your favorite furniture
– breaking every vase and pot in the house
– unannounced biting and scratching
9. Pets make us FEEL LOVED
They are always excited and happy to see you. They never judge you. They are always interested in what you’re doing. They are sad when you are sad, and happy when you are happy. They protect you from bad guys. ‘Nuff said.
10. Pets let us GIVE LOVE
That’s right. They LET us, and they love it.
And that is the most beautiful thing that one can have — an opportunity to give love.
