Having a pet is good for your mental health!

A new study out of Miami University in Ohio finds pet owners have better self-esteem, are less lonely, more physically fit and more extraverted than non-owners.

The research looked at three studies of over two hundred adults.

It also found pet owners were just as close to their animals as they were to their friends.
