The relationship between pets and their humans is not complicated! It is an unconditional love but this love carries a responsibility. Companion animals look to their humans to provide for their basic needs, i.e., food, water, medical care and shelter. Obviously, this is non-negotiable. Humans must not neglect any of these needs if we choose to bring a pet into our home. But this does not have any guarantee. Trust and love must be earned.
Most feel this cannot be negotiated either!
And always adopt from your local animal shelter – the rewards are endless and the trust and love given by a rescue is the best of all!!
