There is nothing essential about pets, but they sure are nice to have. As far as I know, no other animal takes in species unlike its own and nurtures and cares for them, but we humans are more than just animals. Pets make us feel good about ourselves for any number of good, and sometimes bad, reasons.
Pets are a great way for people to give and receive uncomplicated affection. Pets also teach us life lessons. The care of a pet teaches us the importance of: nurturing, discipline, fitness, and more. Anyone having trouble keeping their pets alive shouldn’t be trying to have kids, but that unfortunately isn’t the world we live in. In any case, I’m blessed to live in a world with the concept of pets.
