It seems that over the past year more and more people have been looking to get pets. On the one hand, that’s quite understandable; spending time with animals is great for humans, as it lowers our stress levels, it makes us more energetic and it’s real fun. What better than a walk with the dog? Or a purring cat on your lap while you’re working from home? Pets just make life way more beautiful.
On the other hand, it’s important to be serious when getting a pet. A pet is a long-term commitment, a companion, a loyal friend, and a member of one’s family. It needs love, respect and good care. So let’s not just get pets in order to fill the void and then get rid of them when we think they don’t suit our lifestyle anymore. That’s cruel and disrespectful towards God and His creation.
Whether you already have a pet, you’re thinking of getting one, or you just love them but can’t handle the commitment, watching a heartwarming film about animals is always a good idea. We have therefore selected the best animal-related films on NFN. We hope they ease your loneliness and cheer you up a bit. Enjoy!
