Pets can provide us with companionship. When we come back home from an exhausting day, our little buddies provide good reasons for us to take a walk outside. Obviously, pets would bring us relaxation and refreshment, not to mention the feeling of being needed and relied upon. Keeping pets is an effective way of keeping us from feeling lonely. Besides, pets can enhance positive behavior in children. Research shows that children who play with pets are more caring and they would know how to take care of other people. Children will become affable because of the love they give to their pets, which in turn will create far-reaching implications for their future. To conclude, pets are just like our friends who help us drive away loneliness and satisfy some of our mental and spiritual needs.
