Pets should be treated like family members.

I know people that consider their pets a part of their families. I strongly agree with that stance towards the animals we have in our homes. For me, treating a pet like a family member is a good lesson in responsibility. In addition, this attitude makes the animals we possess feel happier, and guarantees their being satisfied with our care.

We should treat pets like members of our families, because the animals that we take care of give us lessons in responsibility. One knows (YOU KNOW) that there is somebody but himself (APART FROM YOURSELF) to look after. Thus we learn how to look after our future families. In addition, pets teach us qualities like patience and understanding.

People should consider his pet (THEIR PETS AS) a family member, as the animal they possess (OWN) will feel happier this way. Pets like cats and dogs are aware of the attitude their master has towards them. They feel better when they are paid more attention. Plus, (IN ADDITION) when you think of your cat as of some (ONE) of your relatives you will never dare to torture it.

Pets should be granted (PAID THE ATTENTION) with the attention that we bestow to our families, and thus their health will be benefited (BENEFIT). One (YOU) will never dare to leave his (YOUR) dog hungry if he accepts it as a part of the home. Many people ignore the animals they have at home. However, pets need care, nutrition, and attention. I think that it is not right to buy a living being that will depend on you, and make it suffer because of your lack of responsibility.

The people that I know think that pets should be treated like family members. I agree with them. Not only is that good for the animals’ health and mood, but also it teaches us responsibility.

Hi Nukeman,

I attach (with changes in capitals) a corrected version:

It is believed by many human beings who own a pet that they are least bothered about whether they have any human friends close to them but they would always love to have a pet throughout the lifetime. It may be a little hard for others to envisage such a scenario but this is actually the fact when it comes to having a pet. A pet like a dog, cat, bird or any other usual pet animals can completely redefine the meaning of life for the person owning a pet. It is like they both are just for each other and no one can breach the space in between. What is it that makes the bond between a human and an animal so much special and extraordinary?

It will be better to have a brief look at the importance of pets in the lives of the human beings:

  • When anyone owns a pet, there is always a sense of responsibility that automatically develops in the individual. This is because the owner of the pet knows that the pet will need the touch of nurturing and care right from the morning itself and hence, this will always be kept in mind that will help to develop an inherent responsibility, which will help in the overall development of the characteristic traits of that person. Moreover, there may be certain moments in life when life can get morose and one may not find any reason to carry on or get up in the morning. But the existence of a pet which has a need related to the owner keeps that individual going until things get straight in life again.
  • There is always a sense of time management that keeps revolving in the mind of the person having the pet. In other words, apart from the busy work timings and hectic life, one always keeps in mind about spending appropriate time with the pet. This instills the ability to manage time for the pet no matter how hard life gets. This will in turn aid in the process of developing this super skill in the long run that can be applied for much larger purposes in the future. This is because, in spite of having the professional time, one should also have a certain personal space and time that ought not to be meddled with at any cost for maintaining the peace of mind and stability in life. The balance between professional and personal world gets a platform for practice through the pets.
  • When it comes to the pets, there are always some softer feelings associated with it. Today, there is an ardent need of milder emotions that are slowly erasing from the modern human lives leading to increasing of negative emotions like hatred, anger, violence and the like. These can be sobered just by having a pet because this will help in the development of an unfailing bond backed by ample nourishment between the pet and the owner. The exchange of love and affection between the two will help in building up of an emotional attachment as a whole and this will not only enable the person to stay happy and content but also help in calming down and learning the significance of feelings like consolation and companionship. This may sound pretty simple to hear just like that but in reality, this plays a major role especially in the context of today’s life where everyone is engulfed in depression and loneliness. Instead of getting more engrossed in sorrow feelings, if one can just manage to have a pet, then this will invariably act as a psychiatric tonic for the person.
