Ten minutes of play with them and we would feel so grateful for the abundance of joy showered on us.
You may not be an ardent pet-lover, but you can always choose to show love and care towards them. And as pet-owners, you can always choose to care more for pets and not flaunt them as a sign of prejudice.
