Re: [CHAT]: How pets affect our mental health.

@Mona-RO Sounds amazing and an great option if you're pet-less! These should be established around the country I reckon! Smiley Tongue

 

@Ben-RO haha - that story about the goats sounds so awesome! I bet you both got so much out of that!

Yeah...I can imagine the cats would be sick of all the kids! And adults too probably!

Re: [CHAT]: How pets affect our mental health.

@Mona-RO no, but I've been meaning to! I think I have a bit of an allergy though - my eyes water and nose runs when I'm around animals that shed, including cats (I've always had dogs that don't shed so that might be why I'm a bit sensitive?), so I've been a bit hesitant even though I love cats!

 

My boyfriend's family has a cute rabbit that sheds so much - I never really realised it was that much of a problem until I was cuddling with her on the couch, and started coughing and wheezing...! Smiley Sad

So many options if you don't have a pet but still want a cute animal fix!

 

Time for the next q:

 

Can pets help you make lifestyle changes?
