In our society, almost everyone has an animal in their home, a pet. I own a bunny, and as I was petting her one day, I got to thinking, why I love having her around. Why I love to give her a clean and safe environment. I decided it was because she sometimes calms me down, as well as fills my life with laughter and happiness. And our pets, even though we may not think so, they have their own little personalities. Even an animal as small as a dwarf rabbit. At times, we may think that they aren’t very smart. However, after watching and studying my bunny for over a year’s time, I’ve noticed how intelligent she really is, in her own ways. For instance, I’ve observed her friendly strategies and the way she shares some of the same characteristics that cats tend to have, such as grooming and the ability aim higher and jump up to places such as my desk (which she isn’t allowed to be on). Which leads me into memory, that she always goes places that she knows she’s not allowed to be at. And when I come along, she’s quick to jump off.
From my experiences of having a majority of other pets before my current bunny, we as humans, love to have someone there, someone cute and fuzzy, with whom we can share opinions (even though knowing there’s a small chance they actually can comprehend), having someone or something( though not my favorite phrase to use towards animals) to admire or watch a movie with. I believe this is why so many single bachelors and bachelorettes tend to hold cats or dogs in their home. The simplicity of having cute company, how divine! : )
