Pets have many skills that should be appreciated. Yes, they can sometimes seem to eat great quantities of their food and snacks, but that isn’t the skills we need to address. They can decorate your yard with frequent mines or overflow a litter box, but these are not the talents many pets have that should be noted. They can even do tricks and be trained to do unbelievable things for the military or the police. They can become therapy dogs and lead the blind. These still are not the skills we should talk about.
One real talent and skill that pets have that should be celebrated is their ability to comfort everyone. It matters little who you are or what you need, the rub of a cat or the face licking from a dog can automatically make you feel better. When you are sad they seem to know and they will give you their best petting. They will suddenly not be able to push their furry selves against you enough. Their little tails are in danger of wagging right off, because they love you.
Another talent they possess is to know when you are ill. They won’t bring you chicken soup or take your temperature, but they won’t leave your side and they will even keep you warm. Once again, they are sure all you need to get back on your feet is some rubbing and a good all over lick. Most cats will not so gently head butt you until you let them take care of you. Their soft purring bodies are soothing and can really make you feel so much better.
There is no better confidant in the world than your pet. They will keep all secrets and even those things you cannot tell anyone else the pet will be glad to hear. For those children with very quiet natures and those with disabilities that keep them from being able to talk of their feelings, the pet is the perfect match. They can tell their pet how angry they are with anyone and that pet will never tell a soul.
Some children and even adults have a lot of trouble making friends. They feel like they don’t fit in. These people feel, so often, that they don’t belong; that they’re on the outside. But they should not fret because they have at least one friend. A pet always wants to be with their person.
Pets are so accepting and that is still another talent. They do not care if their owner smells bad or their hair is a mess, they accept them. It is obvious that they are their favorite person and nothing can change that. They don’t require their owners to clean up or dress up to be with a pet. They love them just as they are right this moment.
Pets have a talent for knowing when cheering up is needed and will put on a show of their finest antics to please an owner. If they can produce a smile, they are happy and have done their job.
Another talent they have which they know nothing about is the ability to give their people, better health. Doctors have said a pet can lower blood pressure or make us laugh and those things bring better health. When you pet a dog or cat, physical changes happen that improve your health.
Pets have so many skills and should never be expected to fend for themselves when they are so valuable to their owners. They should be given the care, the love and the special feeling every day that they give to us. Adopt a rescue dog since saving their life could save a person’s life too.
