Short essay on Our Animal Friends for kids. Man is a social animal. This fact itself proves our nearness to the animal kingdom. Animals are very faithful and helpful. Right from the very early ages, a dog is perhaps the animal who has helped mankind the most. The cow comes next. She provides us milk, and bullocks for the agriculture work. The horse or the mule is yet another animal that helps mankind in more ways than one.
A cat is also known to be among the best pets. Children, specially the younger ones, like her very much. They carry her in their arms like a puppy as she is lighter and softer to handle.
Among the animals we can include goats, lambs hares or rabbits also. The presence of an animal in a house is considered to be a good omen. In villages, farmers own cows, buffaloes, bullocks, horses, mules, ponies and even asses for milk, farm work and over and above that, as a status symbol. The animals are indeed our best friends.
