Few life pleasures are as comforting as a dog or cat peacefully napping by your side. Pets can alleviate loneliness, lower blood pressure and stave off depression.
Having a cat, dog or other small pet takes some effort. Carrying out tasks like grooming, cleaning or walking an animal can give people a sense of purpose—not to mention a reason to get out of the house for some low-impact exercise and some social interaction.
And the benefits extend beyond just the physical. Ever had warm, fuzzy feelings while looking into the eyes of a cuddly creature? Or possibly a peaceful feeling watching fish swim in an aquarium? You're not alone! Therefore pets and caregivers with loved ones are the perfect fit.
