You might truly love your human best friend. She makes a terrific shopping companion and can share the latest school news, but there is no best friend better than your animal best friend.

Pets are wonderful friends because pets are so simple in many cases. In exchange for basic care and a bit of scratching behind the ears, your pet will be your friend for life. Even pets like fish and gerbils can be your best friend if you just spend time together in a slightly different way.

Your Best Friend Is Always Around

While a human best friend might have other plans, your animal best friend is always around. She will sleep with you when you need someone to cuddle with and she’ll walk with you when you need time to think – unless she’s a fish, that is. Having someone around you who genuinely loves you does wonderful things for your self esteem.

Your Best Friend Won’t Judge You

Even the best of friends sometimes have a falling out over one friend passing judgment on the other. Fortunately, your animal best friend doesn’t particularly care if you’re wearing the same shirt you wore yesterday and if your jeans are just the right cut. Animal friends just love you, period.

Animals Are Very Soothing

Unless your human best friend has made it a habit of singing to you, your animal best friend has the edge in the soothing department. Having animals around has been shown many times over to reduce stress and help to soothe frazzled nerves. It’s hard to be wound up and stressed out with a kitty winding himself around your ankles or a fish swimming about in the tank at your elbow.

Pets are Dependable

Many different influences can pull on a human best friend. Her own desires and interests might pull her away from yours and make it hard to communicate about certain topics. While your pet might not understand why you love gym so much or why you have such a hard time working in a foreign language, you can count on your animal to always be there ready to listen without having to run off to a club meeting or interjecting stories of his own.

Animals Give You a Sense of Responsibility and Pride

Finally, when you are working with animals, you begin to develop your own collection of positive emotions. Being able to care for another creature effectively and keep that creature happy is a major feather in your hat. Having responsibility and working to ensure you perform your job adequately may very well be the best present of all from an animal friend. Learning to care for others is a skill you’ll be able to use for life and you’ll be able to thank your furry, fuzzy or scaly friend.

I have a guinea pig and have had her since Christmas. I love her, but she really freaks me out. o.o She's albino with the beadiest red eyes I've ever seen. I love seeing the look on my friend's face when she spends the night and Zero just stares at her. But I am very attached to her, even if she does remind me of taking care of a child. C:

I find it challenging to get attached to my pets, because due to a family tradition we only ever own rats, and they have the tendency of dying of cancer after about 2 years.

Though the one I have now, Dante, is really a lovely little creature. He's not as hyperactive and twitchy as most of our other rats were and you can just hold him in your arms for hours without him trying to get away, like most other rats are wont to do.

When he eventually dies, I'm going to be heartbroken, I'm sure.

Though I do suppose that if I had a pet that lived longer, it would only hurt more when they died because of even more time spent bonding.

Anyway, this is a rather depressing street I'm going down. XD

I'm just happy I can have pets to begin with, my brother is highly allergic and asthmatic, so he can't own anything fluffy.

I love my dogs and cats. I always have. I don't think I can add anything about them in this word limit, so I'm just going to leave it off at good article.

My best friend was my cat Spooky. I had him for 17 years (since I was 1 yr old). Wierdest thing, whenever I was truly upset, no matter if I was in my room or outside he would find me and cuddle me.

When he died I was horribly upset. My hubby took me out to find someone to help ease the pain, thus Spooky Jr came into our family. He hasn't lived up to Spooky Sr. But he has found his own way into my heart.

Pets are great. I have never yet been let down by any of them.

Cute Article.
