Justifying Adopting A Pet

Monday, July 11, 2016

familyadoptErica Freeman, a professor at the University of Maryland School of nursing says that studies have shown that animals are good for our health. This is true whether we own our own pet or just spending some time with one. According to Dr. Freeman, pet owners have better health in general, fewer doctor visits, higher self esteem and tend to be more independent that non pet owners. She says that dogs can also motive people to exercise. I know that if I had a dog, I would be taking him on long walks and have him running around chasing his dog toys. This is great exercise for the two of us! People who won’t take a walk by themselves would be more motivated if they knew that they had to get up to walk their dog. People who walk with a dog walk longer and faster then people who walk alone.

My cats provide me with companionship. Their soothing purrs while asleep in their cat bed or on your lap, calm me down. Cats can actually lower blood pressure.

You don’t have a pet yet? I would think about adopting one! They offer more than just good health. They offer unconditional love that is very difficult to find these days. So head on out to get a pet carrier for your new pet!

Beautiful Calico Cats

calcatCalico cats are not a breed but they all share unique markings. They have separate patches of red, while and black fur. Some calico’s have separate blocks of color but in pastel shades which give them an ethereal appearance. The coloring on these calico’s is a little different from your typical calico. Because two “X” chromosomes are needed to produce these markings, calico cats are almost always female. Like any mixed breed cat, calico’s don’t have any specific personality traits. Instead their personalities are determined by genetics and early contacts with humans. But regardless of personality, the calico is always sure to be admired by other cat lovers. These cats enjoy all of the same cat accessories as other cat breeds.

Remember cast should always have access to water at all time. Make sure that water bowl is filled with fresh water. Cats usually don’t drink as much as they should. Wet cat food provides moisture that could substitute for the lack of water in your cat’s diet. It a good idea to provide wet cat food in addition to dry food. Don’t forget the cat treats of course.
