Just like every mother around the world, being a fur mom comes with great responsibilities. It requires a lot of hard work to take care of the furry kids. But at the end of the day, seeing your furkids stay healthy and happy is one of the greatest joys of being a fur mom. 

In celebration of Mother’s Day this year, we’d love to share with you these 5 reasons why being a fur mom is the best thing in the world. 

1. Your furkids keep you company 

Living with a dog or cat means you never have to be alone anymore. They follow you everywhere you go, in your bedroom, in the kitchen, or even inside the bathroom while you’re doing your business.  

2. You are cared for when you’re feeling down

Some studies suggest that dogs have emphatic-like behaviors and cats can pick up human emotions. It might not be a coincidence when your fur babies snuggle beside you whenever you feel sad.

3. You have someone to create memories with 

When everyone’s too busy to have fun and hang around, your dog or cat will always keep their schedules open for you. You’ll always have someone with you to stroll in the park, exercise, hike, shop, or play frisbee on the beach.

4. Your furkids make you laugh and smile

With their cute and somewhat crazy antics, dogs and cats are masters of entertainment. Watching your dog get scared of his own reflection in the mirror or seeing your cat go gaga over a laser pointer will surely make you giggle. 

5. You are always appreciated and loved

Your furkids may not be able to say it, but their actions prove how much they appreciate and love you. The moment you step out of the house, they look forward to the time that you’ll come home and bond with them. Having a dog or cat to shower you with love after a tough day makes life worth living.

To all fur moms out there, the Wishbone Family wishes you a Happy Mother’s Day!
