Why do we keep pets?
I have a cat and two pet rats. I have always had at least one cat. Yesterday I got to thinking, why? What is it about cats, and about me, that I don't feel complete without my kitty?
Companionship, foremost...then purpose. We are naturally caregivers and there is something about the adoration that a dog or cat brings to their master that is so endearing. I can't imagine not having a dog, or two, in my home!

I can't imagine ever not having a dog in my life. I just really enjoy my dogs company. He's part of our family and I love spending time with him and caring for him.
I think like what was already said, most people these days keep pets for companionship. It gives them something to care for, and an nonjudgmental friend.
As said, companionship is top reason. Humans need companionship, and animals fill that need! (Although people need people friends too!)
I keep them so I'm not lonely. They keep me company and in return I feed them and give them a place to stay. They don't have to stay with me. But Shadow remains all the same.
