Oh the Good Life with Pets!

Oh the Good Life with Pets!

Pets are an important aspect of our lives – for most of us anyway.  Here in Stillwaters Estates small pets are encouraged because we know that pets can have a very positive impact on our health in general.  Our neighborhood covenants require all pets to be inside or on a leash at all times but certainly having pets is recognized as very important.

Several articles I have read say that pets can provide health benefits such as reducing blood pressure in hypertensive patients, as well as helping us older folks remain alert because we are caring for a pet.  My own experience in pet ownership is that knowing your pet is always there to love you unconditionally makes the caretaking more than worthwhile.

If you are an animal person you will recognize what I am talking about when I refer to my cat as elderly.  She is 14 and doesn’t get up quickly anymore.  She sleeps a lot and her only real interests are 1) Eating; and 2) Finding a warm lap to sleep on.  Other than that she seems entirely focused on where, when and how to find sleep.

These days we pamper her and try to keep her healthy as she ages in front of our eyes.  She still is a joy to have in the house, not so much for her antics, but certainly for how much she demonstrates her complete adoration for Mr. Blogger and me.  Pets have always been a part of our lives and the companionship is immeasurable. 

Here is a little cat humor for those of you pet owners out there who can relate:

Weather Icon with the Sun and CloudsThe Old Farmer’s Almanac says periods of rain and I am guessing that is a pretty accurate forecast given the past couple weeks of weather.  We are really enjoying a sunny Friday afternoon – hope springs eternal that Spring will soon be here!
