Celebrate National Pet Month!
Yes, we know there’s a month (and a day) for everything these days, but National Pet Month, which is all about celebrating the joys of pets, is definitely worth a moment of observance.
Our informal National Pet Month poll about what’s so great about pets is revealed below.
<strong>What We Love About Pets</strong>
<em>1. Unconditional Love</em>
Bottom line: They don’t judge us. Well, <a title="Condescending Cat" href="http://weknowmemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/condescending-cat.jpg" target="_blank">maybe cats do</a>, but at least they don’t <em>say</em> anything. Generally speaking, if you love a pet it will love you back without question and that’s one of the greatest things in the world.
<em>2. Fun </em>and<em> Funny</em>
Pets are great entertainers and playmates. They make us laugh and smile with their antics, and provide infinite source material for some of the greatest <a title="Tennis Ball!" href="http://weknowmemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/ermahgerd-ternus-berl.jpg" target="_blank">memes</a> and <a title="Sleepy Dog" href="http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/enhanced/webdr02/2012/12/17/13/anigif_enhanced-buzz-20207-1355769222-1.gif" target="_blank">gifs</a> on the Internet.
<em>3. Good Feelings</em>
Everyone pretty much agrees that pets are healthy additions to our lives. They can lower blood pressure (when they’re being good), relieve stress and even <a title="Cat Fax" href="http://www.pbh2.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/best-cat-gifs-fax.gif" target="_blank">help us get our work done</a> when deadlines are tight.
Pets are there when we need them. Anyone who has a pet knows what it’s like to come home to a friendly face at the end of a bad day. What’s even better is that they don’t really expect you to cheer them up; somehow they just know <a title="Friendly Dog" href="http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/2013-12/enhanced/webdr02/3/14/anigif_enhanced-buzz-25379-1386099022-10.gif" target="_blank">we could all use a friend</a>.
Sure, there are guard dogs that actually protect hearth and home, but every pet has the power to make its owner feel safer – even if it’s only to explain what it was that <a title="Peekaboo Cat" href="http://s3-ec.buzzfed.com/static/enhanced/webdr06/2013/9/13/12/anigif_enhanced-buzz-6018-1379089444-10.gif" target="_blank">went bump in the night</a>.
