@Stealth_ninja The atmosphere is different in a household aye! I guess animals are naturally affectionate and loving creatures so they make us feel good and happy. Happiness spreads...

Hahaha yeah @j95 it's really funny. My cat, especially Umrao, would meow her head off until I gave her what she loved most - wet food (junk food equivalent). This was every morning without fail.

 

@khaleesi_18 thanks Smiley Happy Sparky really was a character and for a Doberman he was such a pussycat (with family i.e.). He passed away years ago. It was really heartbreaking.

How do they help us be more mentally healthy?

Similar to what I said before, they are a huge comfort even without saying anything. They ease loneliness, they give people a sense of family, they can help with social situations, and they are real fun to just be with.

One of the biggest things pets do for me, is to get me out of my head for a moment. It's pretty hard to get lost in your thoughts when there's a cat trying to hunt down your foot.

Yeah i agree @Butterfly Wings so much happiness.  Yeah i think I remember you mentioning that @j95 that must have been so hard. Your ham story sounds so adorable! haha Dogs get so excited by the simple things, i think thats also a reason why they're so great. They remind you of how important the little things are!!

My dogs will nibble at my feet in the morning until I cave and give them their food @Mona-RO It's really not appreciated when I just want to sleep in on a Saturday morning, but they know it will work
