We all know that pets are family.
Being a pet mom means a lot of things. Whether you have reptiles, fish, cats, dogs, birds, or horses, being a mama to any kind of pet is rewarding. Pets are rewarding and enrich our lives in countless ways; ways for which we could never repay them.
In honor of Mother’s Day this year, here are the top 10 Reasons Being a Pet Mom Is the Best!
10. You’ll never have to be alone.
Through the good times and the bad, your pets will always be there for you. As a pet mom, you’ll never have to be alone. Literally ever. Not even in the bathroom. Or when you’re cooking. Especially not in the bathroom!!
9. Pets will always have your back.
You’re mom, and what you say, goes. You’re also the one that feeds them. And snuggles them. And lets them sleep under the covers. So basically, they’ll support anything you do.
8. You’ll always have a nurse.
When you’re sick, you’ll always have someone to nurse you back to health. Or at least a cuddle partner on the couch until you feel better. There’s soup involved, right? When you're feeling under the weather, your furry friend knows it's prime time to give you a few extra snuggles to make you feel better.
7. You always have a second set of eyes.
No matter what you do, you always have a witness. Because you’re always being watched.
6. Food will never go to waste!
Whether it’s crumbs, pizza crust, and let's not forget the bacon!; none of that food will go to waste. You’ve always got a willing mouth to snack on leftovers!
5. You’re never without an exercise partner.
There is always someone willing to play. Whether it’s going for a walk, or playing inside, or going for a hike– you always have a companion ready and willing to get some playtime in.
4. Pets keep you on your toes.
Pets provide you with endless entertainment and keep your mind sharp. Keeping them occupied and out of trouble, as well as sufficiently entertained, will be sure to keep you on top of your game and sharp as a tack.
3. The Perspective of Being Stress-Free.
Loving and caring for such wonderful pets forces you to see things from a different perspective. Being able to see things from their eyes is a helpful tool in life. From work to your relationships, life can be stressful at times. Unfortunately, we can't all afford regular trips to the spa to relieve that tension that's building up. Luckily, it's been scientifically proven that pets help decrease stress in humans. Just playing with your pup can help increase oxytocin in your body, and it'll certainly put an instant smile on your face. You can thank them later.
2. Pets give you something to be thankful for.
Love, the constant attention, and support all come with being a pet mama. Sometimes, we need that extra kick of responsibility to get on track. Having a fur baby can definitely help with that. Would you be a pawrent?
1. Unconditional Love
No one will love you like your pets. They live for the moments that they get to be with you. From the second you leave the house, to the moment you come home, you are all they think about. It is why I feel God gave us pets in the first place, to show us what unconditional love is all about.
That feeling can’t be beaten.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the pet mamas out there! Pet Kisses and your furry babies love you.
