Pets: a solace during this pandemic

During the first lockdown of 2020, pets were of primary importance for us humans.
We were forced to remain indoors for three months without being  able to see friends and relatives, the only thing we had left were our four-legged friends who, despite not being people, managed to give us unconditional love and friendship.

Furthermore, pets in general can have a profound impact on a person’s well-being. For example for someone who is feeling lonely and isolated, pets can provide an important sense of connection with reality and also be a great sense of comfort when someone is feeling sad or stressed, Which often happens given our life in this last year.
I think that the lockdown was also a benefit for them because we dedicated much more time and attention to them and we discovered again how great it’s stay with them and how beautiful it’s give them beautiful days also learning to enjoy every moment.
The mental and physical benefit of having a pet is proving particularly relevant during this stressful time. As a result, the coronavirus outbreak has inspired many people to adopt needy
In the last year there has been a great increase in the demand for pets, something that is given both by the desire to welcome dogs, cats or other animals into the house, and by the fact that they can do it with more quiet and passion cause the much time spent indoors for the pandemic.
