With the development of people`s living standard, pets have become more and more popular. These pets including cats, dogs, birds and so on are treated as members of many families. They eat, drink, sleep or even go out shopping with their hosts. You`ll never feel strange to see a lady with a little dog in her arms on a bus. As to me, although I do not have any pets, I do agree that pets shoulde be regarded as the best friends of human being. To support this point of view, I can raise many reasons, among which, the following three are of the most importance.
The fist reason is that pets are so lovely that they are one of the most important forms of entertainment. For example, the parrot is very good at imitating people speaking, and you will never imagine how interesting it is to hear a parrot saying "hello","how do you do" or "how are you" just like a gentleman. Cats and dogs also belong to the amimals that can bring you a lot of laugh.
Seconly, many pets understand us the human being very well and can comfort us in many ways. Take the little dog for example, when she finds that her host is umhappy, she will usally lap the face of her host, raising her tail to please her host. When she does this, her host no longer feels unhappy.
The last but not the least reason is that keeping a close relationship with pets help us get to know how to love. As the hosts of pets, we should always understand when our pets are hungry or thirsty and should prepare the foods or drinks for them carfully. When they are ill, we should aslo take them to see the veterinarian. I do not believe that a man with a good relation with his pet is a cold-hearted man.
To conclude, although raising a pet will cost us much money or energy, the amusment, comfort, love we get from them can definitely overweight the disadvantages. If possible, I will raise a pet by myself!
