Saving two lives instead of one.What greater benefit is there than saving a life? By adopting both a dog and a cat, you are significantly changing the access they have to pet health care, nutritious food, individual needs, exercise and most importantly the amount of love and affection they receive throughout their life. You are for all intents and purposes providing orphans with a warm, loving family. If the ability to do this for two different beings instead of one isn’t significant than I don’t know what is. This in and of itself is a good enough reason to adopt both a feline and canine pet, despite the potential difficulties.
Siblings! Don’t let your furbaby develop the “only-child syndrome”.Have you ever met someone who is incapable of shutting up about themselves? There are those people who are fun to be around, free-spirited, but they just can’t seem to understand the concept of sharing or letting someone else be in the spotlight for a change. Don’t let your beloved pet adopt this personality trait! One of the best things you can do for your pet provides them with a lifelong bestie, a sibling, a partner-in-crime, someone to play with, need I say more? If you are a person who is often running around outside of the house, works in an office, or finds themselves incapable of being with their pet and meeting their needs at all hours, then do something kind for them and adopt another little friend who can spend that time with your pet while you are away.
