If we ever had to think of a world without our furry friends, it would be a pawful place.

Pets are at the center of everything good, happy, and funny. A pet joke or pun is one of the best ways to light up your furry happy life if you're a pet owner who can relate to it.

There is a variety of pets you can choose from, but a majority of the population prefers dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, or fish.

Some even tend to keep sweet and tiny pets like rats, hamsters, and guinea pigs, while some like even more exotic reptilian ones like boas, pythons, geckos, and even small alligators (where it's legal to keep them!)

Turtles, frogs, and fish also happen to be commonly kept pets.

Be it a dog, cat, rat, rabbit, or anything else, once a pet is introduced in one's life, they become like family.

Pets are also said to increase happy hormones that help take off that stress from work when you get back home. Having a pet also helps the owner grow a sense of responsibility because they need to be taken care of and loved.

A pet brings nothing but undying love and joy into one's life. Some pet owners even declare themselves as pet parents.

The bond one grows with a pet is eternal, and the purest and highest form of attention one can get. It doesn't matter if you are a dog person or a cat person.

Having a pet in your life makes it worth your while. You can never get too bored when you have another living, breathing soul in your house running around doing silly things for your attention and hence are the best pain killers and mood uplifters.

Pet puns will make you purr with happiness because they will remind you of your pet, and that is bound to bring a smile to your face no matter how stern your exterior may seem to be.
