The Good That Animals Provide.

Updated on August 28, 2013

Saturday, April 13, 2013

Animals are actually really great for us as we live. You can get beautiful pets with loving personalities at animal shelters. One of our best dogs came from , and animal shelter. Our dog was Jessie. Jessie loved my family, and she became family too. It's happiness, and joy is a contageous thing. They wag their tails. Their happy when we come home from work. They give great welcomes when you open you're front door. Dogs get all excited when you're key opens you're front door. Jessie loved Becky.

It is well known that cats, and dogs can be very affectionate. As human we constantly love to be loved whether we realize it, or not, and cats, and dogs will not hesitate to fill you're life with affection. This is bound to help a person live longer. Being loved is good for you're health. If you're troubled you can pass you're hand in the inviting fur of you're cat , or dog that can be there for you if you're feeling blue.

I have been sick a lot in my life. Sometimes I have been bed ridden, and stuck in bed for months. I remember being so sick that my wife had to help me turn to my side. I could not see my cat Boo behind me, but I knew he was beside me for months every day. I never realized cats could be so affectionate. I will always remember how affectionate my cats were when I was ill. Boo would come to visit me often. Boo is our large beautiful house cat.

It seems to me that Boo makes his rounds kind of like a little guard, or even a little medic. He likes to jump on my bed , and likes to crawl on my chest. He likes hugs. He likes play, and being rolled over to get his belly rubbed. Joann tells me that I play to rough with Boo. Boo is like a nine year old kid. He gets into trouble. He does not get into serious trouble, but a little trouble. What is a home about anyway ? Isn't it about expressing emotions, and not walking the line so awfully straight. Boo is so real, and so special, and we got him for free. He was just a stray white kitten.

All of our cats have great qualities, and personalities .

When Becky is at the kitchen table with her wheelchair, Sweet Pea is sitting on her lap. Sweet Pea likes breakfast too as she places a paw on the edge of our kitchen table as she reaches from Becky's wheelchair. Sweet Pea sleeps by Becky at night all the time. Sweet Pea provides her little warm ball of fur by Becky.

You know you can have a million important things on you're mind, but you still have to have a break. You need a relaxing distraction sometimes. Animals help people psychologically in a big way, and I truly believe that pet owners probably live longer. My wife, and I are both diabetics. Animals are often brought to nursing homes for elderly people to pet. The petting of a cat, or dog really relaxes human beings.

Exercise is important in the lives of humans, and for animals .Nine cats keep my wife, and I well exercised.

Animals do need attention, and it takes exercise to bend down to feed a cat , or a dog. Do you hate to bend down ? Ask you're doctor if you should be bending down to get exercise. Chances are, you're doctors will probably tell you that exercise is good for you. Pets do require attention, and it takes a certain amount of exercise to take care of them.

God Bless Everyone.

      Dear Jackie, And Blossom : Thank you precious hearts for dropping in. As we all know , animals, or pets keep households busy. Life has ways at throwing curve balls at folks. One day I felt sad enough to cry, as I hugged my large beautiful cat Boo. I could hear him purring, and his heart beating. He was so darn loveable. It did not take long to snap out of that mood. Pets are definitely good for folks. God Bless you my cherished hearts. Thank you again for you're kind visits.

      A lovely hub. I'm sure if I didn't have my little dog I'd be lazy and wouldn't go walking twice a day. Our pets are a blessing from God.

      Hi my friend, taking care of all the stray animals in your neighborhood shows me the kind of person you are, a good caring person that is looking after some of God's creatures that are homeless and without food. When God looks down from heaven at you He is smiling.

      Hope your week is a awesome one my friend !
