Most everyone loves animals and almost everyone has a pet of some kind. We at MSers Online have a wide range of pets. They range from ordinary household pets such as: cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, etc. Others have horses, a deer (fawn), a koala bear, lizards, newts, a salamander, monkeys, an ostrich, a racoon, and a tarantula!
As far as MS is concerned, many of us do agree that our pets have a great impact on our lives. When we are sick or "just plain not feeling well", they just seem to know "something is not right" and they will try to be near us and comfort us the best they can.
It is true that having a pet does help lower blood pressure and reduce stress. These are only 2 things that almost all MSers have dealt with at some time or another. Just sitting back and watching them play with something, noticing their "quirky little habits", petting them or having them lay on our lap gives us much joy and comfort. It is a proven fact that our pets lower our blood pressure and stress level by making us laugh and feel better even if it is only for a few minutes.
Pets really CAN help us to "make our lives a little easier" each day!
As you will see, many of our pets were rescued and given a good home. If you ever decide that you would like to have a pet of any kind, take into consideration the pet's needs, the time and money involved and the proper care that this pet will need to live a long, happy and healthy life.
We are very proud to show you our pets!
