I Sometimes Enjoy Animals More Than People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 265 People


    My animals never get offended because I don't feel like talking, and if I do feel like it they don't expect me to dress up anything I have to say to make it more appealing, comfortable for them to hear or even make sense at all. Caring for the animals is peaceful for me while...

    Nine years ago I adopted an abused pup...he was six months old and terrified of everything and everyone.  Somehow I knew his spirit was still intact, he just needed to learn to trust again. Little by little he understood that we loved him and he was part of the family...

    I Love My Pets

      I have 4 cats and a dog, and love them like family. I think animals are amazing. I wish people could be more like animals. My pets do not care what I'm wearing, or if I'm successful or not. They do not care that I cannot tell a joke to save my life. They do not care...

    My Horses Don't Judge

    If I have a really bad day I talk to my horses. They don't judge me or call me stupid. All they care about is how I treat them.

    Everyone's Best Friend

    My dogs as well as the horses I have been fortunate enough to own in the past have always been my best friends. As anyone who knows them will tell you they never let you down. They never gossip. They actually know what the word loyal means even if they cannot spell it. They can...

    Kinda Sad But True

    They dnt care if you're fat or short, rich or have bad acne. As long as you give them your love and affection, then you have a best friend for life. Its kinda sad to say that they are more dependable than most people you will come across in your life and they are so much cuter...

    Our Fur Babies

    We have 4 female doxies. Now that all the kids are on their own, the pups have become our babies. Their names are Skeeter, Scooter, Snickers, & Spunkers. They are so much easier to take care of than human babies. They listen better too. And they don't talk back to much.

    I Always Enjoy Animals More Than People

    I've always sought the company of animals(or books) more than people.  Even as a child, they comforted me when there was some trauma or drama in the house.  There was a time when one of my cats went missing...for a whole year I went looking and calling for him...my...

    Always There

    I hold animals in a higher regard than I do for most people. I've learned that a dog or a cat won't betray you or simply leave. Animals have no hidden agendas or other desires.  Out of all the people I know, I can absolutley trust maybe five, on the other hand the simple...

    Not Sometimes, Always

     I used to work in a dr.'s office and I hated it. I now volunteer at my local spca and I love it, except when we get stupid people that come in and ask stupid questions. I wish I could just tell them all off and to get out, but I can't, lol.

    Well duh. They don't critisize, they don't complain (well sometimes), and they don't judge. Who else is that perfect? ;)

    The Experience That Leaves Me "clean"

    It seems like whenever I'm with my cat, or just working with any animal in general, I'm more at ease. When I move on to the next task, I feel clean, with no emotional burden.  Animals demand nothing except for your attention, a little food, and safety.  There's no head...

    Sometimes I like animals more than people. Well, pets anyway. They don't let you down the way people do. They don't have ulterior motives, unless they just have an itch or something and want you to pet them. They let you care for them, and don't put up a fight about it. There are...
