Are Pets Good for Your Health?

pets and health

Not only are we obsessed with good health and happiness around here, I have to admit that I’m pretty crazy about my cats, as well. I love those little furballs, so you can imagine my delight when I learned that people who own pets tend to be happier and healthier! I mean, who couldn’t be happy with a kitty purring in her lap, right?

The folks at eBay Classified shared a great infographic with everything you’d ever want to know about how your pets contribute to your health and happiness, and they were kind enough to share it exclusively with us! Check it:

Pets and Your HealthAdopting a Pet

Don’t have a pet? Don’t fret! There are lots of homeless dogs and cats that need good homes. Adopting is the most responsible way to bring a pet into your family. Check out your local Humane Society or animal shelter. Some places will even let you take the pet home on a temporary basis, to make sure that she or he is a good fit for your family.
