Scientifically speaking, opinions vary about the heart health status of pet owners. However, there is plenty of evidence confirming emotional and general health benefits for those who adore their pets. The little kitten in this photograph belongs to someone in my family who rescued him from abandonment. Unable to locate owners, my family took this kitten to the vet for all those things that kittens need. He now has a loving home where the "I adore you" factor is definitely reciprocal! Do you have a story to share about your companion pet?
