Everybody has good and bad days. It’s perfectly natural to feel a tad blue or depressed during colder months or throughout particularly lonely periods. However, having a companion in the home who can alleviate these moody situations is perfectly possible via pet ownership.
A wide variety of ailments and conditions can impact overall mood, including mental factors. Diet, sleep and physical activity are among the most influential physical factors that influence how we feel. Despite this, there is ample evidence to suggest that owning a cat or dog can substantially reduce stress points that otherwise lead to bad moods and behavioural changes.
