Milan Kundera once said that
True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power.
In her fourth work of Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling also put these words on Dumbledore’s mouth,
If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
Indeed, when we decide adopt pets and decide to take care and nourish them, we have shown God and society that we are capable of love towards even the littlest of God’s creature. Even when we receive nothing in return from them.
I own a domestic shorthair cat myself. I also adore others out there who have pets of their own, especially cat- and dog-owners. Often they are busy, working parents with full-time jobs and several kids, but they still manage to find time and energy to bathe and walk their pets too.
Animal-lovers are indeed amazing people. If you are one, I give a pat on the back for ya!
Your love towards your pets (and vice versa) is called unconditional love, and perhaps it is the only type of unconditional love there is.
