Pets have the incredible ability to bring immense happiness and joy to our life. It seems no matter what day or time, they are always ready to greet the day (and us) with a wagging tail. Our pets truly exhibit kindness every day.
Even in the direst of situations, like a pet sitting in an animal shelter or rescue organization, they are there ready to provide love, comfort, and never-ending kisses to their future forever family.
When you really think of it – pets truly are an inspiration- and give us a great example of how we should begin our day. Our four-legged companions exemplify the word kindness. Of course, it should be no surprise, that our furry friends are such inspiring creatures.
In honor of World Kindness Day (November 13), here are just five ways that pets are the superheroes of kindness and show us this trait on a daily basis.
5 ways pets display kindness on a daily basis
Pets are extraordinarily patient creatures. If we are running late, haven’t taken them out yet, or their dinner is late- pets wait patiently for their turn. They don’t sass us or yell, they just wait. Often times, they wait patiently by the door for us all day in hopes we will return in just a few moments.
Another example of the way pets shows us daily kindness is their never-ending ability to love. They love us so much, even if it means just sitting with us and hanging out. Likewise, they love spending time with us and are always there to give us a hug, kiss, or lend us a helping paw.
Our furry friends understand when we are sad, angry, or happy. They understand exactly when we need them, and they never waiver. Pets just seem to understand. They don’t question and are willing to sit with us when we need them the most. Our pups and kitties truly are wonderful lifetime companions, and their ability to understand our daily feelings and thoughts is something to commend.
As much as we support our four-legged friend, they support us. Pets are our family and are there for all the big and small life moments. They support us through the hard times and rejoice with us during our joyous moments. They are always there with a paw and a wagging tail, no matter what the occasion.
From the moment you first meet your pet, they are loyal to you for the lifetime. They are a trusted and loyal friend, and that will never waiver. Their ability to be so loyal, from a moment’s meeting, says so much about their character and what pets truly embody.
Our pets have an extraordinary ability to be patient, loving, understanding, supportive, and loyal. They display these inspiring traits and show us kindness every day. Perhaps start the day with the same mindset as your furry friend, and lend a paw to be kind today.
