Dear Philip:

Don't Forget Cats!
I'm an only child, but I could always depend on Max.  He was basically family.  The only difference was that he had four legs instead of two.

Polls show that 95% of Americans consider their pets to be a part of their family.

Max passed away in 2018 but he'll always be a huge part of my life.  Now I'm finally ready to find a new pet to add to my family.

Working from home during the pandemic has given me more time to take care of a pet again,  so later this month, I'm going to a ranch for rescue dogs to hopefully find the right one.

Covid-19 has only highlighted our bonds with our pets.  As we spend more time at home, their companionship has become almost essential.

In fact, a recent survey by TD Ameritrade  found that 89% of Americans feel that dogs and cats are helping them feel less lonely right now.  So, it's no wonder there has been a surge in pet adoptions and fostering now that social distancing is the new normal.
