Fluffy - The Saturday Photo Hunt
I've joined the Whistle Stop Saturday Blog Hop and this week's assignment is FLUFFY! The fluffiest thing in our house is our cat, Mario When I started this blog my intentions were to keep it separate from Mario's, but here I am using one of his 400 pictures! Guess you can tell who ranks in this house. Sorry, but he is the fluffiest thing we have.
I started out hunting for a good article on the importance of pet therapy. Well, of course when you want something specific, you can't find it. But I know you have all seen the articles at one time or another: Having a pet is good for mental health, lowers blood pressure, good therapy for depression, good for overall health, etc. Even nursing homes/assisted living facilities are getting with the program and allow residents to sometimes have a pet.
Mario is all of the above for us. He's not the most beautiful cat in the world, but he makes up for that by being super friendly and loveable and is good therapy for both Don and myself. And, the fluff on his belly is super soft!
He is good therapy for both Don and I - gives us a reason to get up in the morning. He shows unconditional love
It's nice to see more and more nursing homes/assisted living getting on board and allowing their residents to have a pet.
Now - why don't you join the photo hunt.
