The bond between humans and their pets

The bond between humans and pets is undoubtably a strong one, and has been for centuries.

From the famous phrase, ‘a man’s best friend’ which points to dogs, and the ancient Egyptians worshipping cats it’s not surprising that now in 2019 we have come to adore these domesticated fur balls and completely integrate them into our lives.

Yes, looking after an animal is a big commitment, but emotionally might they be looking after us?

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.
— Mark Twain
