Mother's Day: 10 Reasons Being a Pet Mom Is the Best

We all know that pets are family.

Being a pet mom means a lot of things. Whether you have reptiles, fish, cats, dogs, birds, or horses- being mama to any kind of pet is rewarding. Pets are rewarding and enrich our lives in countless ways; ways for which we could never repay them.

In honor of Mother's Day this year, here are some of the best parts of being a pet mom.

10. You'll never have to be alone.

Through the good times and the bad, your pets will always be there for you. As a pet mom, you'll never have to be alone. Literally ever. Not even in the bathroom. Or when you're cooking.

Especially not in the bathroom.

9. Pets will always have your back.

You're mom, and what you say, goes. You're also the one that feeds them. And snuggles them. And lets them sleep under the covers. So basically, they'll support anything you do.

8. You'll always have a nurse.

When you're sick, you'll always have someone to nurse you back to health. Or at least a cuddle partner on the couch until you feel better. There's soup involved, right?

7. You always have a second set of eyes.

No matter what you do, you always have a witness. Because you're always being watched.

6. Food will never go to waste!

Whether it's crumbs, pizza crust, dropped carrots; none of that food will go to waste. You've always got a willing mouth to snack on leftovers!

5. You're never without an exercise partner.

There is always someone willing to play. Whether it's going for a walk, or playing inside, or going for a hike- you always have a companion ready and willing to get some playtime in.

4. Pets keep you on your toes.

Pets provide you with endless entertainment and keep your mind sharp. Keeping them occupied and out of trouble, as well as sufficiently entertained, will be sure to keep you on top of your game and sharp as a tack.

3. Perspective.

Loving and caring for such wonderful pets forces you to see things from a different perspective. Being able to see things from their eyes is a helpful tool in life. You can thank them later.

2. Pets give you something to be thankful for.

No one will love you like your pets. They live for the moments that they get to be with you. From the second you leave the house, to the moment you come home- you are all they think about.

That feeling can't be beaten.

Pet parents everywhere should hug their fur babies this Mother's Day! We all have the 'best dogs' and those of us with senior dogs need to cherish every moment.

The best mother's day gifts are different ways to spend time with your fur kids. All the dog mom gifts I hope for is quality time with my best friends. Whether you live with rescue dogs or you're the pet owner of cats, pet lovers everywhere will be celebrating in whatever way best suits them this mom's day.

Happy Mother's Day to all the pet mamas out there! Your furry babies love you.
