So instead of a dozen roses here are the top 4 Reasons a pet is a better valentine
1. Pets are cheap dates – no fancy dinners or expensive jewelry required.
Last year it is estimated that Americans spent over 19 billion dollars on valentines. Don’t waste your money on chocolate filled hearts full of empty calories, flowers that will die in a week or fancy dinners at over crowded restaurants.
2. Pets love binge watching on Netflix as much as you do.
They will lay in bed with you all day if they can. Pets will snuggle whenever you want, and unlike humans the drooling and snoring are pretty cute.
3. Pets won’t play hard to get or break-up with you on Twitter.
They don’t look at their smartphone when you are trying to have a conversation. After the rough break up tweet they won’t mock you for eating ice cream out of the carton. In fact they will happily join you in eating your feelings. Your pet’s lasting love will make you never fear being “ghosted” again.
4. Pets love it when you leave your clothes on the floor (instant nap spot!).
The messier the better! Pets couldn’t care less about your hair or what you wear. No need for a shower or wash your hair, break out the sweat pants and take off the make-up there’s no judgments here!
