Animals have amazing sense abilities. Way more than most people give them credit for. It’s amazing how well an animal can tell if a person is ill. When you picture family pets you think of playing fetch, giving them a bath when they play in the mud, and teaching them tricks. My family has received way more from our animals than we intended, and I couldn’t be anymore happy about that. Here are ways animals touch our lives when we are ill.
- Animals can sense when something is wrong.
When dogs sense that you are hurting they try to help. They will cuddle you and try to make you feel better, with love. They will step in any way they can and they will do anything they feel will benefit you. It’s a pretty amazing thing to be able to count on an animal. Due to being dizzy, no balance, and being weak, I need assistance walking and my dog won’t leave my side when I stand up. I hold onto his collar and he guides me. He is always by my side.
- They are there for you at your lowest times.
When you are at your lowest you can always count on your furbabies. I have my low days, and when I need to let out a few tears my animals are ALWAYS there to comfort me. Whether, they lick your face, cuddle with you, or even just there for you to vent to (because lets face it, they won’t talk back to you, sometimes a person needs that).
- They are there at times when you feel like no one else is.
When you are miserable, life can be hard. At this arduous time, you discover who your true friends are. When you are unwell for a long period of time, usually there is a small group of people who have been around since day one. But you can always trust that your pets will be there for you. They truly are a wo(mans) best friend. Animals are loyal and you can count on your sidekick to always be next to you when you need them.
- They love you unconditionally.
When you are ill, you need all the support you can get. You are stressed, hurting, and just flat out miserable. During this time you need to keep your spirits high and be surrounded by good energy. We need to keep love in our hearts and animals are always there to keep a smile on your face. Their cuddles can always melt a persons heart. Being sick builds a bond with your animals because they tend to feel protective towards you.
Animals have an amazing bond towards their owners. When you are ill you tend to have a larger bond because they just want to help take care of you in their own way. It’s always comforting to know that they will be by your side during dark days, and there to have fun on your good days. They are more than animals, they are family.
