It’s weird how pets or animals in general have an effect on people, that’s why many offices now have a resident dog. 🐶
For me, growing up even when my Mum was really ill and I didn’t want to maybe talk about it to anybody, my cat was always there. He’s been there ‘helping’ me study for GCSEs, laying on my paintings at A-levels to this year stretching over my laptop whilst I write my dissertation 💻
Even though animals can’t speak our language, there’s an unspoken bond which can be very uplifting after a long day at work or in a stressful moment in life.
