20+ Photos Showing the Amazing Changes That Come With Fluffy Paws

According to different studies, people that have pets go to the doctor less often than those who don’t. Just petting animals on their backs helps to reduce your blood pressure and levels of cholesterol and stress. And everyone who has had a pet knows that they change our lives radically.

Bright Side has found out what the ordinary days of cat and dog owners look like and is ready to show you all the challenges and all the fun.

“I’m extremely blessed to have my own tiny lifeguard. Except, instead of using a whistle or attempting to save me. He screams at me in terror... the entire time.”

“What I see when I wake up”

I can’t get anything done with all this “help.”

You’ll forgive anything once you see this look.

“I bought this footrest for me. To rest my feet. But the cat has other plans for it.”

You will never be alone if you have a dog. Especially during lunch.

“How my kittens greet me”

“We have heated floors in the bathroom and the kitties just love being in there in the winter. I caught them sleeping like this and couldn’t stop laughing for a long time.”

“This is my dog waiting for my dad to get home from work.”

“Now I have to unplug my lamp at night. Because this furry thing learned how to turn it on. And he turns it on every time he is hungry in the middle of the night.”

“Couldn’t find my girlfriend at our family dinner Sunday, checked mom’s room and found this...”

“Routine after work cuddles. This little one screams until you hold her and cuddle for a sufficient amount of time.”

“I can’t ever go to the bathroom in peace.”

“I had a not-so-good day at work. He hasn’t left my side since I got home.”

“I think she’s up to something.”

“If I ignore him for too long, he yells at me in the mirror.”

“We came home to a severed backpack strap, destroyed Bluetooth earbuds, a chewed through harness, and laces missing from our shoes.”

“Penelope likes to make sure every (EVERY) trip to the toilet is safe for me.”

“I woke up and rolled over a little bit, and heard a ’bwurr?’...”

“I call it the ’I’m so happy you woke up today!’ dance. He does it every day when I wake up.”

When the cat demands attention:

“Whenever it’s time for his evening walk, he pretends to be asleep, harness and all. He’ll start fake snoring, while looking to see if I’m buying it.”

This is how you call a cat.

“I just got out of the shower, and this little monster stole my only towel.”

When you have pets, all the best seats are always taken.

“Every morning my cat sits on the toilet and watches my fiancée do her makeup.”

“My dog decided to eat an avocado on my bed just before bedtime.”

“He couldn’t even wait until we assembled the pizza.”

“Got a kitten. Day 2”

“Did a photoshoot with my dog and this was the result.”

“Went on a 2-week vacation. I think he missed me.”
