For all the things we can do for our pets, the benefits they give us are overwhelming. I love that it’s made me less selfish – making sure the cats are looked after means I’ve put them ahead of myself. They’ve also taught me a lot about love that I just didn’t really ever appreciate. The unconditional love a pet gives you is like no other. Pets are good for stress, anxiety and mental health. They are part of the family and will never be considered to “just” be a pet.
