Pets Add Life interviewed 1,000 pets including a talking bird, pup, and cat to see how they felt about being an only pet, and came to the conclusion that they need another furry pal around to keep them company. While my cat Priscilla probably would take issue with this notion, I'm sure that Charlie would agree that his life is more full because she is in it (although just like the kitty in this video, he is also obsessed with his Dream Curl scratcher.)
As part of their ongoing mission to spread the joys and benefits of owning a pet and increasing responsible ownership, PAL is asking animal lovers to take action to help make life better for pets in shelters. I hope that you'll join me in taking their pledge on Facebook, and resolve to adopt your next cat instead of buying it, make time to volunteer at a local shelter, or take a picture of a homeless pet and share it online. Even these seemingly small gestures can help make a huge difference in the life of a dog or cat in need, and remind us that we must work together to help lift the burden facing many shelters and rescues who are struggling to do the right thing.
