Published on June 7, 2021

It takes just one act of kindness to turn someone’s whole life around.

You never know when you’re saving a life. Adopting an animal can drastically change two lives at once. It will alter your lifestyle as well as the furry creature’s. When an animal enters your life, you’re going to be surrounded by happiness. You’ll have another reason to live and wake up in the morning. It will make major changes in your life but that is nothing compared to the 180-degree turn that the animal’s life will take. From being neglected in a crowded shelter with minimum attention to getting cuddles 24/7 from your own human, everything changes for them.

If you feel lonely and think something is missing from your life, trust me, you need a cat. They will give you the best time of your life. You will have a new best friend who is going to stick with you through thick and thin for the rest of your life. When you’re down, they will purr and cuddle with you to lift your spirit, and they will also celebrate all the best moments of your life with you. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and grab your furry feline friend today! And remember, adopt! Don’t shop.

After my dog Courage was stolen from my front lawn, I was heartbroken. I just couldn’t bring myself to love anything so much ever again. I was spiralling into depression and I always felt lonely. A year later, I finally decided to adopt a 2-month-old kitten. It has been the best decision of my life so far. I named her Venus, and she sleeps with me every night. She’s always there when I’m upset and her cuddles work like therapy for me. If you don’t own a pet yet, you’re missing out on a lot. Take my word for it and go adopt one! You won’t regret it, that’s a promise.
