I have cats, rabbits, and a dog that I enjoy immensely. I can't imagine not having pets. My aunt and uncle treat their cats like children. I may not go that far, but I do love my animals. Here are 7 reasons to love having a pet, no matter what type you have. Some of my reasons apply to just about any type of animal, but others might apply to a cuddlier species.
7. Always Happy to See You

I have yet to come home and not be greeted by one of my animals. Even the rabbits will run to the fence to see me. Of course, these little guys are usually looking for a carrot or a banana, instead of a pat on the head or kind word. The dog, on the other hand, is absolutely elated that I've just arrived and can't contain her excitement at all. At least two of the cats come to the door and give a few enthusiastic meows before running to the kitchen for a treat of some sort.
