We all have certain aspects of our lives that we wish to improve. Have you ever considered the idea that a pet may be the key to those changes? Here are a few ways that a furry pal can make an impact on your existence.
Let's start by talking health. Obviously, if you are allergic to a certain type of animal, you will want to avoid having one as a pet. Other than that, pets can actually help to improve your health. Your mind releases chemicals, like serotonin and dopamine, while playing with an animal that produce positive feelings. Think of your pet as a furry (or scaly) antidepressant. Researchers have also discovered that pet owners have fewer heart issues, and that those who have had heart attacks seem to live longer if they have a household pet.
If your a single guy, a pet can serve another important purpose. Most animals are chick magnets. I'm not sure what kind of girl your going to bring home if you have a pet rat or a snake, but most girls go crazy over an adorable puppy or kitten. You may end up starting a lasting relationship simply by taking your pet for a walk at the local park. Want a unique girl? Show off a unique pet like a ferret. Even if your pet isn't the kind you can take for a walk, show it off on your dating profile. Exotic fish or a bird may attract the kind of woman you are looking for.
For a father a pet is also a great idea. New studies show that your children are actually less likely to have animal allergies if there are pets around when they are young. You can save yourself a lot of worry over allergies and medications, and introduce your kids to the joy of pets at the same time. Plus, it is a great way to teach your child responsibility by giving them chores in connection with the family pet.
Let's face it, pets make good companions. If you're in between relationships, at least you won't be coming home to an empty house. Just don't be the guy who lives alone and has multiple cats. There is a certain number that tells sane girls to run away as fast as they can. And be sure that your pets are well taken care of. A woman may compare the way you take care of a household pet to the quality of care she can expect from you. Love your pets and, as a general rule, they will love you back. You can't always guarantee that sort of loyalty from a person.
