In a scary year that has been both isolating and lonely for so many people, the companionship offered to us by animals has become increasingly highlighted and celebrated.

This year, as part of our Big Give Christmas Challenge appeal where all donations will be doubled, we are raising money to pay back the debt we owe to these loyal, caring and faithful companions.

Never before have so many of us collectively felt the benefits that animals can bring to our physical and mental wellbeing.

What drives our love for animals? Cat owner and psychotherapist Naz Altinok gives us a psychological perspective.

I felt close to animals all my life but didn’t think about why, until I started my training to become a psychotherapist. I found the psychological understanding of the human-pet bond so fascinating, that I wrote half of my graduate thesis on the role of pets in our lives.
