Happiness is pets.
I’ve always been a pet person. Growing up, I had Cats, dogs, fish, hamsters, and lizards — whatever I could talk my parents into. As an adult, the only time I haven’t had a pet was when I first moved out on my own. Today, we have three dogs and four cats.
I can’t imagine not having a pet of some kind, although I think three dogs is our limit (until we move to a farm).
