About two weeks ago, I bought two gerbils. Their names are Pixel and Rocket, and I think I love them more than I’ve ever loved anything. They make me laugh and I happily start my day earlier to feed them. I love the feeling of having something to take care of. Meanwhile, they’re just being clueless gerbils.
Am I alone in this happiness brought about my pets? I don’t think so! According to New York-based site Happify pets bring millions of people happiness, better health, comfort, and companionship all over the world.
