actually before starting my essay, i would like to tell you that I am not good enough in english...so pls help me to improve...waiting for your suggestions.
From ancient times , human being have been living in groups because he is a social animal.As the development occurred, these groups were replaced by families.Earlier there were joint families, but due to industrialization and other requirements, these families are getting settled to different places and forming their nuclear family.
Though this industrialization and modern era has given all the materialistic happiness to humans , it create scarcity of most important thing for human being and that is ...love, care, affection and emotional support...what a family can give ." Need is the mother of all inventions", humans are looking at pets for all this emotional need...so I think pets should treated as a family members because they can give us all these things what a family can....love , care, support,protection.
I think if you are looking for a true love ...pets are the only source for it except your family obviously...because they never expect any thing form you except love and love only .May be their way to express it is different but you can feel that warmth in their love.
In today's fast life, when everybody is busy in their life ....pets can accompany you as a best friend, a supporter etc. they can not only be best friend of you but in many cases of physical disabilities and mentally retarded case, the help them in their regular activities..such as to give them few things, help them to cross the road etc....In fact , recently thee was an incident in newyork ,where a dog had saved his masters life , by calling an ambulance when his master had got a heart attack.
Research also proved that if you want to release your mental stress, it would be a better option to keep a pet, because their playful activities help to secrete few hormones...that causes release of stress
Family is where we can get love , care ,mental -physical support and I think pets are the storehouse of all these things...so they should be treated as your family.
