Hello friends. Hope you are all ok today. Does anyone have any pets? I have two rabbits the cutest little things. Some people may think they are only pets but they have really helped with my depression. I get up in the morning for them and my fiancé/family. They make me laugh and keep me motivated. They know when something is wrong with me because they lick my forehead. When I feel panicky and low I sit with them and they calm me down. It's the little things in life xxx

      Hi Maria your cat sounds adorable! I talk to my rabbits all the time and I could lay there with them for hours. One is very nervous but he is getting better. I have a netherland dwarf called thumper and a white and grey rabbit called digger. They are inseperable and love jumping around the garden. I worry about them as if they were children and I never feel lonely anymore when I am off work smile xx

      I do too smile I say good morning and goodnight and I miss them so much when I am at work. I think we should have called digger thumper because he's the one who does all the thumping thumper is very calm and laid back she only thumps if you try to catch her in the garden xx

    I have one terrior/collie dog 14

    One tabby cat 17

    One ginger and beige tabby 6

    They all get on well together, dog and one cat sleep near each other and ginger loves sitting on the

    chair that's mine.

    17yr old knows me best and knows when I am down or ill and is,always there.

    My dog is my shadow.

    They give. 200% love and its unconditional.

    Cats only need humans cos they can not open tins .

    but they live us just the same.

    What type of rabbit's have you? X

    I have a rescue cast who was abandoned by his previous owners.  I call him Smudge, and he means the world to me.  He snuggles in bed with me, and is always there when I need to stroke him for comfort.  I had dogs in the past to make me go out and walk them, but broke my heart when had to have them put down.  Now just me and darling Smudge.
