Pets Bring a World of Love

By James Larkin

It’s not surprising that out of the many pets in the world, the most popular are cats and dogs – our feline friends holding first place.

What is perhaps surprising is that (in the USA at least) the third most popular pets are ferrets, those cute and cuddly little furries who like biting things.

I’ve been unable to find any reliable statistics available for the total numbers of pets and breed types worldwide but we’re talking many millions. Pets are really big time.

Other common pets include birds, horses, fish, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, mice, turtles and tortoises..

The many unusual pets include reptiles, goats, monkeys, kangaroos, frogs, pigs, scorpions, spiders and stick insects.

What’s interesting is that people buy pets mostly for companionship. The bonds established between them are strong and often therapeutic. It’s also interesting how many creatures respond to love and care and become part of a person or a family.

The love of owners is amply rewarded by devotion and the depth of feeling portrayed between owner and pet is a joy to behold.

Owning pets enlightens people about wildlife. It provides a better understanding of other creatures and results in increased tolerance and compassion.

People realise how important wildlife is to our world and our lives. Never before in history have so many been concerned with preservation of wildlife. Movements to protect species likes, tigers, elephants, whales and polar bears were unheard of in my young days.

Today we tend to think of all creatures as family and this is reflected in our love for our pets.
