Video Description

Pets can help you cope with difficulties. However, you don't have to forget that they are living things so they require care. Therefore, they can be a source of stress as well. Therefore, if you are thinking of getting a pet that can help you cope with problems, you should get one with minimal care requirements (small size, short hair...). You don't want to add more stress to you life, don't you?
