Pets Are Pawsome! National Pet Month
National Pet Month Is Here!
May is National Pet Month (aka the best month EVER!!!), so we’re kicking it off with some of the things we love the most about pets. Here is your excuse to spend a day, or even the whole month, spoiling your furry family. Let’s be honest though… you probably don’t need an excuse.
There are so many wonderful things about pets - we couldn’t choose just one! To celebrate National Pet Month, we wanted to share 3 of our furvorite things about a life with a pet.
One of the most special things about the bond between a pet and their parents is the unconditional love shared between the two of them. Pets don’t care if you’re sweaty and stinky, if you’re old or young, or what you look like. All they care about is making you happy, getting some tummy rubs, and occasionally a treat. Pets teach us that we’re worth love and worthy of happiness in our lives - and they’re darn good at it too!
Pets are a fantastic companion - whether you’re looking to just come home to a purring kitty and some company, or a buddy to take a hike with, pets are there. Pets are able to change lives. They can be a best friend and someone to spend time with - or they can help you make a friend! If you have a pet that you take outside, you’ve likely had conversations with people, or even made friends, because of your pet! They are a great conversation starter, and can help you find similar interests. There’s a reason they’re called “Man’s Best Friend!”
Improve Your Health
One of our favorite things about having a pet are all the wonderful health benefits that come with having one! It’s likely easy to think of all the ways your pet has helped you - who wants to take a walk outside every day, rain or shine, without a pet?!
Well, unsurprisingly, there are so many other health benefits to having a pet that you likely never thought of! Animals can reduce your cortisol levels just by spending a few minutes with them, which in turn lowers blood pressure levels. Animals also significantly reduce symptoms in certain mental health cases. Having an animal to give you purpose in life and a routine, provide a distraction from symptoms that come with mental health struggles, or even just be someone to hug, can change someone’s life for the better.
