As we grow older, the need to feel loved and cared for, and to feel appreciated and needed will heighten but not dwindle. Although the family may provide us with these feelings and emotions, one of the best ways of feeling needed and appreciated is by having a pet. These pets can come in canine or feline forms but there are also other pet options. Whether you raise a cat or a dog or a bird or any other pet, they are dependent on their owners for their lives and in return, they provide their owners with the feelings that they are needed, loved, and appreciated.
