There’s something so soothing about a pet. (You pet owners know what I mean.)
Maybe it’s their soft, furry coat or their comfort with being themselves that can be so settling. But I think it’s the feeling that no matter who you are, how much money you have or what you look like, they’ll love you unconditionally.
It’s something I felt with my first dog who passed away earlier this year. And how I feel about my current love, a 5 year old mini lop rabbit.
The world can be as chaotic as it can be. I could have papers piling up on my desk and emails crowding my inbox. But when I see him cleaning his floppy ears, those things don’t seem to matter. For a moment, I’m at peace.
Why am I bringing up my furry friends?
Aside from the fact that I adore talking about them, there’s also a point to this brief ode to my pets post. Pets have a positive effect on our mental health. Two of our top posts this week is all about that and more. Read them and you’ll see what I mean.
Also, I hope you all had a wonderful Veterans Day and have a great weekend!
