17 Pets That Helped Their Owners Get Through Tough Breakups

"My cat was all I had through a breakup. I couldn't wish for a better pet. She's loved me at every turn."

Some people believe their pets can understand a human's mood, and some studies have actually shown that both cats and dogs may be able to sense a person is feeling sad. When it comes to breakups, pets might just be the perfect companion you need to get through it. They may not be able to understand what you're going through, but they can bring you comfort by showing affection.

From a cat cuddling up with her owner to a dog bringing over a blanket, pets really can be your best friend in times of need.
