The psychological benefits

A confidante You've had a terrible day and you just need to vent. However your friends aren't available, your partner is at work and you don't see your counselor until Friday. Fortunately, you can just sit and talk to your pet. They may or may not understand you. Not that it matters: at least it means you can say what you want without fear of reproach.
