A few days ago I shared the news about Petsmart Charities National Adoption Weekend and guess what? Friday is the day it all begins! So exciting. I shared with you our love for our two cats; Sundae and Sophie and how they have made our family complete. They both bring the kids and us so much entertainment and love and our house never be the same with out little cats running around. I truly hope that if you were considering adopting an animal into your family that you consider stopping in this weekend to your local Petsmart - November 13-15th.
Reasons Why Owning A Pet Is Healthy:
Man's Best Friend - this phrase is not just for dog owners. Having an animal friend to come home too brings a level of companionship to the household. Humans are social creatures so having a pet in the home allows for interaction and socializing if even just with the animals.
Stress - Who doesn't love coming home to an animal that can tell you have had a bad day? They know! Seriously, our cats are so smart and can tell when we are stressed, scared, sick or even sad. What a gift to have something that can show so much love with a simple purr or puppy kiss!
Play - Get up! Move! Have fun!! This is possible with cats or dogs and maybe even hamsters and bunnies! Animals are playful which gives us the perfect chance to engage with them and have some fun. Dogs are certainly a great way to start walking every day!
Good for the Mind - Studies have been shown to see a decrease in depression when you own a pet. Good for the mind!
There are so many other reasons that it is a good health choice to own a pet and I am sure you can think of some of your own. But while you are doing that make sure you take part in the upcoming twitter party before you head to your local Petsmart to find your new animal friend!
