5 reasons why your pet is basically a family member

If you have a pet, you know that they're pretty much the best member of your family. They're cute, silly and provide us with unconditional love. Here are five ways your pet sneaks its way into your heart and becomes another member of your *crazy* fam.

1. They like to eat with you

Sure, you can't share everything you eat with them, but a piece of cereal every once in a while can't hurt, right? They're pretty much a human, too!

2. Endless snuggles

How can you not love your pet when they snuggle up like this? Just like us, they enjoy their lazy days with their fave blanket (and fave!). So, grab your furry friend, snuggle up on the couch and get ready for a Netflix binge-session — you both deserve it.

3. They make you laugh

Your pet can make you laugh more than any friend, and we wouldn't want that any other way! Their goofiness can bring a smile to your face even on your worst day *ever*.

4. They want to go everywhere with you

Anywhere you go, your pet wants to go. In the house, the backyard or in your town, your pet loves to be near you and see what you're up to!

5. They adore you

You are your pet's whole world and they never fail to show it. They care about you, comfort you and love spending time with you, which is what family is all about.
