Benefits of Fur Babies
So in August, my landlady, who by the way is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, gave me permission to have caged pets. I went with guinea pigs. I was so glad that she was able to make this allowance for me because I was starting to struggle because of lockdown, COVID-19, and living alone so when I was able to get Bright-Eyes and Chocolate I was over the moon.
I have had them for a month and I can tell you that it is amazing. They keep me moving and keep me going with things to do. Instead of spending weekends talk to myself, I spend my time speaking to them. I get my fur baby love in hugs from them and to be honest it makes me smile every time.
Honestly, if you are able to get a pet to love and love you, I would suggest it. It has helped me keep motivated including forcing me to go out when I need to make sure that they have everything that they need.
Pets can really help you to benefit your mental health.
