If you’re the typical crazy pet owner, like most of us are, then you probably talk to your pet. I know I do, and it’s because they make such great listeners!
It’s better for us to get out our frustrations and emotions rather than bottle them up inside and pets are a great outlet for that. They will listen without judgment and without interruption. They will still snuggle you, regardless of what you say. Plus, rehashing your thoughts aloud may help you to see the situation in a new light.
Your pet is always there for you, and even though he doesn’t understand what you’re saying, he knows that you need an ear and is always willing to offer that.
Has your pet helped you through a tough time just by listening?
