Studies have shown how good pets are for our physical and mental health.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Just the mere act of petting a dog or cat has a measurable calming effect — our blood pressure immediately goes down.
While we regularly shower our pets with physical demonstrations of affection — of strokes, kisses, and cradling — those of us who have pets know how precious it is when our companion animals reach out to touch us.
I still remember Charles, who was not a demonstrative cat.
One day, I stupidly went to an aerobics exercise class even though I already wasn’t feeling well (it turned out I was stricken with acute sinus infection).
When I came home, I collapsed onto my bed. Charles came onto the bed, laid by my side, and gently touched me with his soft warm paw.
Here are some images of not just pets, but wild animals, giving their humans a hug.
