Question: How has being around animals most your life changed your life?

  1. @rennae12: I grew up as an only child, so having pets was really important to me during my childhood and teenage years. They gave me companionship, something to do and I learned so much from spending time with them. I had pet rabbits, mice, goats, sheep, cat, dogs, fish, birds, a blue tongue lizard, and even a pony at one stage!

    We know from scientific studies into how people relate with animals that they make us happy and connected to the world around us. I’m not sure what sort of person I might be if I hadn’t been around animals (both pets and wild animals) growing up, but I think I might not have been as happy as I am now 🙂
