Honestly, my dog is the sweetest thing and just a ray of sunshine. Obviously she can get annoying sometimes as all pets are at one point or another (staring at me, pushing my bedroom door open at any time she pleases since it doesn't close properly, just generally being a dog), but she's wonderful and always so happy. Every day when I get home from school she basically tackles me because she's so happy, and it just makes my day. <3

My cat is the sweetest little boy ever and every moment with him makes it worth it. He always does the little head butt thing to my head (which is a cats version of hugging basically and it's a huge sign that they trust you), he greets me at the door, he sleeps by my head every night because he knows I like his purring. He's just such a sweet cat.

One time Pixel got spooked and flew into the garage while the door was up. I was horrified that he'd accidentally fly into a nearby tree, but, instead he landed on top of my car and called "Mommy" and made little baby noises until I picked him up.

Even though it was a scary situation, it made it so worth it because it proved Pixie really loved me and the rest of my family, and that the first person he'd call for is me ;u;

Whenever my dog falls asleep on me it's the absolute best thing. I'm sure it's a pretty normal thing for pets but I just love it so much, he's a sweetheart.

Everything seems to have been going wrong, recently; I've been in an awful mood for the past few weeks. I don't know if maybe she could sense my frustration or what, but my cat ended up jumping up on the table, taking a running start, and bunting me more aggressively in the face than any other cat has, today. She ended up doing this a few times, and it honestly was adorable. I'm so thankful for cats.

It's been a few years since my parents made me get rid of my cat Twinkie, but she made having a pet worth it, she used to follow me into the shower and would follow me anywhere I'd go inside the house, she even used to lay on my back and would meow at me in the morning to get up. I hope she is in a good home now.

Our little kitty named Brownie, most of the time hates me, but the fact that she wakes me up and six-thirty in the morning to just check her food bowl (even if it's full), makes it all worth it. I'm already awake anyways.

My cat just passed away, and I'm absolutely heartbroken. One of my other cats, came in and just sat with me when I was having a hard time coping, last night. She just slept by me all night, and it just felt good to not be alone. I don't know what I'd do without my pets, they're family too.

I'm sitting on a very comfy new couch with my poodle next to me. His head is resting on my lap as he sleeps, and he's making a lot of purring noises. It's taking all of my self control not to wake him by smothering him in pets.

When my poodle play fights with me
His bites aren't too hard so I find it fun.

I also love it when cats are sitting on your lap and they do the thing with their claws

My dog will just
Stand or sit on things he knows he's not supposed to be on
Typically it's just sitting on the chairs where we eat
But one time he stood on the back of the couch and looked around

My guinea pig is very sweet. She's spooked quite easily, though she's pretty tolerant towards me in particular. She responds when I make noises at her, and every time I come in she's standing in the corner of her cage closest to the door. The part of her that makes any hardship worth it is that when I'm crying or panicking or otherwise in a bad mood, she'll be very interested in me and stare at the side of her cage until I take her out. Unlike other times when I take her out, she won't squirm or protest at all when I pick her up, and she'll let me snuggle and pet her for as long as I need. I'm very lucky to have her, and my only misgiving is that she doesn't have a friend (which I plan to amend when I make her a bigger cage).

If I don't reply to you or take a very long time to do so, don't take it personally! I'm bad with words and people and socializing, so, uh, I don't really talk much when I don't feel like I need to. I'm really sorry!
