Do you think having a pet contributes to your mental and physical health?

I do, definitely. I find my cat has helped me through tough times. I have read over and over again how it has been proven that the elderly with pets, on average, live longer, than the elderly without pets. This speaks volumes, and is a testament to keeping a pet, if you truly enjoy it. Pets give you unconditional love, don't care how you look, lol, and just give you a feeling of not being alone, if you are alone. What do you think?

Definitely. Like you said they never judge you and you don't have to worry about whether or not you are good enough for them or if they are going to cheat on you or leave you for someone else. They are willing to do anything you want just to be with you.
