People Share Uplifting Animal Pictures That Will Warm Your Heart

Keeping a pet is universal among human culture and is something that has been going on for thousands of years. Although cultural trends play a heavy role in pet ownership, there’s actually more to it that could explain our love for animals as a companion. Companionship is a basic human need, which is why people settle into marriage and start a family. However, more and more people are now choosing pets over a human partner. And there are several reasons why we prefer the company of animals over humans.

Our devotion to pets stems from the fact that animals provide unconditional love. They show affection consistently and are unreserved with their love for us. It doesn’t matter what we look like or if we’re broke or if our breath stinks – they don’t judge you based on that. Another thing that makes them a better companion than humans is their unwavering loyalty to their owners. As long as the bond is formed between you and your pets, you can ensure they will never abandon you. They will stick with you even in the most difficult times and will always stay by your side even when the world has turned its back on you.

Of course, their irresistible cuteness is a huge plus in having animals as companions. Cuddling with them or simply watching them makes us happier. Personal experiences backed up by scientific studies claim that interacting with pets helps reduce stress and lower blood pressure in humans.
