Humans don’t have that much appreciation for me. (Well, maybe Hubs. Although I’m pretty sure my lack of concern over laundry has killed the never-not thing.)
(Kitty is not so great at the “walking with me” bit, but she makes up for it in “napping with me.”)
I don’t love them like I love people, but the relationship I have with them IS love. It’s also (usually) deep affection and genuine delight. Especially when they pull off the sit/shake/jump combo.
Then I REALLY love them.
(My love is conditional.)
What about you? How do you feel about pets? (Yours in particular, but others as well.) How would you describe your relationship with them?
Happy New Year!
