Do you have a toddler? Then you definitely must get a pet! In case you're still asking why, the answer is simple: to post the cutest photos on Instagram!

And verse visa – if you have a cat that thinks s/he is the master of the house and the ruler of the world, you can introduce him/her to the newborn. Your little toddler will show who the real ruler here is! For many pets, the arrival of the baby becomes the first time they have to share your attention. A good thing, it teaches them to be less selfish, and in a while, they will learn to take care of the new family member.

Mutual love may come from the first sight. Imagine a baby girl, seeing a goat only in her fairy tale books. And here it comes alive! And you can touch it, pet it, feed it and smell the scent of the real animal. Isn’t it the smell of the farm that village kids remember forever?

We live in a truly beautiful world that brings to life these absolutely adorable creatures. This tiny girl will remember the first meeting with a duckling till she grows up. And maybe this very meeting will “program” her to be a caring and loving person through her whole life.

Our kids do not care about Instagram. But they do care about their friends. Toddlers and animals can teach us that it is so easy to understand each other and establish a real friendship, even if you speak different languages. Or do not speak at all.
