    Yes, I just lost my dog Peaches and I miss her so much.  Pets s't pecially dogs, love you unconditionally.  My kids' cat is so adorable and loving, so unique for a cat.  You just can't help but love this cat.  He's so sociable and loves everything you give him, specially the wrapper and the box. lol  Yes it's worth it.. the joy and love your pets give you is priceless.

    I have a cat, and she really is more than worth giving a good home. She's clever, entertaining, and very loving; I'd never want to be without her. Yes, having a pet is worth it.

    There is an old saying, "You can't buy love."   It's not true.   You can buy unconditional love in a pet shop.   Every puppy, kitten, and maybe other animals, give their owners unconditional love from the moment they accept you.   They even love you when you treat them badly.   

    If it worth having a pet.  You bet it is!

    Sassie, my dog, keeps me company, loves me unconditionally and keeps me fit because I need to walk her. Having a pet means looking after a loving, living thing. If you don't have the time, don't get a pet. However, if you do, I would highly recommend one.

    Defintiely! I love my dog Molly a ridiculous amount! smile I think maybe because I don't have kids yet, I think of her as my child. She is spoiled rotten, and as everyone esle has said, she loves me unconditionally no matter what. Shs is always crazy excited to see when I get home and she helps me to get in a better mood if I am having a bad day. A pet is definitely worth it smile

    As long as it is something that you are ready to handle having a pet can be the greatest thing.  Remember your pet will love you the way that you love it.  Talk about unconditional love, you'll never find this kind anywhere else.

    I have 2 cats and 2 dogs, and I they are like my children...but like children there are responsibilities that come with them.  Make sure you are ready to accept the responsibility to feed them and provide proper medical care when needed, and be prepared to provide someone to look after them when you travel, or are able to take them with you. 

    If you care for them properly, what you get in return will be well worth the price.

    Its not really worth it, having a pet is alot of responsibility . But it depends on the situation, lets say for example a women is barren and she needs something in her life, then yes its worth it.

    But if you just want to have a pet just to have one then its not worth it.
