The bond between a human and an animal is beautiful.
I am ofcourse not talking about every animal that exists since we all know some wilder animals are just not open to forming such a bond with humans. Haven’t we all heard stories of people trying to tame wild animals but always ending up injured and worse? So today, we are only going to focus on animals that are generally kept as pets like cats and dogs. The reason why so many people keep pets isn’t just because these animals look adorable even though that is a big factor as well.
Usually, the reasoning behind people wanting a pet is because of loneliness. After all, there was a sudden increase in adoption when covid hit as animals were the only solution when people had to quarantine alone. The bond between a human and an animal can be beneficial for both parties whether we put it in the matter of psychological or physical health. It has been proven again and again that having a pet generally increases the time you live and not only that but pets can also help with depression.
So just scroll below to see some adorable doggos and kitties with their short and sweet stories.
#1 It seems this doggo is quite happy with the new set of wheels judging by the smile on her face.
#2 That is the look of true love on the faces of these two.
#3 I have no idea how one can fall asleep sitting in a position like this.
My 82-year-old dad fell asleep with my yellow lab’s ear in hand.
#4 Now I want a dog as well and it is all this picture’s fault.
Finally caved and got my son a rescue for his fifteenth birthday. They are in love.
#5 This is a very big and fluffy kitty.
Everyone, say hello to my big boy, LJ! He’s a Maine Coon, gonna be 3 this May and he’s 21 lb, still growing!
#6 The doggo clearly prefers her husband over her.
#7 I think I might have fallen in love with that sweet face.
I tried to take a funny picture of her chicken wing loaf but she looked at me and I got the sweetest photo.
#8 This particular doggo is learning how to become a contractor.
Her foster said she loves contractors. She’s definitely the perfect match for my husband and will admire him working all day.
#9 When your cats are waiting with bated breath for your return.
The bond between a human and an animal may seem like a new thing but surprisingly this has existed for over a thousand years. This is also the reason that when it comes to veterinary medicine, the doctors usually treat the human and their pet as a team rather than separate entities. Many people even prefer spending time with their pets rather than with humans and this has become more and more true in recent years.
#10 The floor changed so much in 13 years.
I kept the shirt from the first day I met my best friend and 13 years later, I said goodbye to it.
#11 Is the kitty making fun of her hooman? Or being a copycat?
#12 I want someone who looks at me like this dog looks at this woman.
#13 When your dog tries to comfort you.
I had a fairly rough day at work today. When I finished, this sweet girl wouldn’t leave my side. As soon as I lay down, she jumped up and hugged me.
#14 ‘Is this making you feel better, hooman?’
#15 This cat knows that he owns the house and everyone living in it.
Husband said he was going to make a bed frame. I thought it was for our new mattress. It was for the cat.
#16 This is honestly too adorable for my heart to handle.
#17 When your birthday is not as important as your cats.
#18 The other donkey looks quite surprised by the bubbles.
