As a proud pet parent, I understand the love of bringing an animal into your home.
I enjoy the warm love of a furry creature whose main interests are eating and napping with me.
My cats greet me when I come home from a long day of work, they wish me goodnight before I go to sleep, and they are my little alarm clocks announcing breakfast every morning.
Animals adopted from shelters are especially loving. They have the unfortunate experience of being taken from their homes and placed in a loud environment with many other animals. While shelters offer an amazing service for surrendered animals, they can be stressful and overstimulating. That’s why they try to place animals in homes where they can relax and unwind. Shelter pets often transform from stressed to sweet when they come home.
House cats and dogs belong in loving homes where they’re considered part of the family.
Luckily for Klaus, a senior cat, he is part of a family and even helps look after his little sister, Fern, a one-month old baby. Klaus used be a stray until he was taken in by his forever family.
He watches over his little sister while cuddling her gently. Wrapped in a yellow blanket, the two are cozied up together. Of course, the two are bound to both fall asleep considering how comfortable they are!
Stories like these are inspiring snippets that remind us of the simple happiness of living with a pet.
Though sometimes cats get a bad reputation for being mean and aggressive, many just want to want to curl up and purr with their favorite family members.
Babies are not always the gentlest of animals themselves. They may be tiny, but they love to roll around and play, which sometimes includes tugging on the soft fur of a pet, or harmlessly slapping or hitting. The animals here understand boundaries and respond to the babies with incredible patience.
Consider moments like these if you’re on the fence about adopting an animal! They can bring an enormous amount of joy and affection into your family.
