Yea, I feel ya. My cat is my buddy. She's almost always chilling with me and often sleeps next to me or sometimes directly on top of my chest, haha.

She can't replace human connection but it is nice to have another living creature around when you feel down.

Pets have been a great way to dealing with my anxiety, when I was in North Africa I had 4 tortoises and a dog, I always enjoyed being around them, they don't judge you and you can have a 'naive' relationship with them that you couldn't have with humans.

Haha, 4 tortoises! Wow! That's a lot of tortoises.

I really wanted a dog when I was a teenager, but my mom was opposed to it. I garden now and I feel like it has some of the same effects. I enjoy having something to take care of and routinely check on.

Oh, absolutely. Tending and caring for living beings has an effect on us regardless of being a plant or animal (or Tamagotchi for that matter). One day I'd like to get a few bonsai trees and take care of them.
