Our daily lives are constantly filled with routines, meetings and socializing. Some of us break such routines for a life filled with happiness and meditation. However, that lifestyle isn't for all of us, hence we get a pet instead. A furry or slimy creature that grabs our attention, that enjoys our company and keeps us at peace.
In their eyes, we are their superheroes, we are their knight in shining armor and we keep them safe. They assume we understand all of their needs and will be able to provide for them. Just as a clingy relationship, they depend on us, however, often we can't understand them. When they're hungry, we take them for a walk and when we are all tucked into sleep, they want to run around playing.
