7 Reasons Why You Should Have A Pet
Do Our Pets Go To Heaven

Thinking about getting a pet? Although a pet is an expense, and there is plenty of responsibility involved, there are many benefits to having one.

1. A pet can add humor to your life.

It is funny to watch animals get so excited over things like eating table food or getting sprayed with water.

2. A pet can help reduce stress.

Physical contact and touch with animals can lead to the body producing oxytocin, a hormone that reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

If you find yourself feeling stressed out, having a pet comes in handy! Since animals like the attention, stroking an animal benefits both the owner and the pet, and it strengthens the bond between them.

3. You can sleep with your pet.

Instead of sleeping alone, you would always have the option to let your pet sleep with you!

4. You can dress your pet.

You can have fun dressing your pet in casual clothes and holiday outfits, such as Halloween costumes.

5. A pet will comfort you when you are feeling sad.

Dogs and cats truly can sense when their owners are sad. It can be nice to know that your pet cares about you when you are feeling down. In those moments, you can count on your pet to be by your side.

6. A pet will give you responsibility.

Having a pet is good for both kids and adults. It teaches kids responsibility which would help them later in life, and it's beneficial for adults too since it helps them to be more responsible in other ways.

7. Your pet will always be excited to see you.

If you've been away from home for a period of time, you can count on your pet to greet you when you make it home.
