About Us

Dear pet lovers: Welcome to Pet Comments!

Pets are a fundamental part of our lives, and it is a scientifically proven fact that pets contribute to our mental and physical well-being. Older adults are moved and feelings of loneliness dissipate with the company of a pet, young children have better emotional and cognitive development and of course, many animals are trained to serve as service animals that can even save our lives.

We know how important pets are to our well-being and we know how important your pets are for you because we love them too!

What Pet Comments offers to you

Here at Pet Comments, we offer you all kinds of useful and extremely vital information that can help you take care of your pet's health, giving them a balanced diet and even the best way to groom your pet. We don't limit ourselves to just one species because we know you can create bonds with all kinds of animals, from a small kitten to an exotic sugar glider.

On our homepage, you will find entries with all kinds of information related to dogs, cats, small pets, reviews about different products your pet might need and the perfect diet and nutrition recommendations for your pet. We hope that you and your pet can take full advantage of the information contained in these pages.

Miriam W-Njoroge

Contributing Writer

Growing up in the countryside and on a large farm, Miriam got to interact with many animals, and this nurtured her love for animals. When she moved to the city to pursue a degree in Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Literature, in The University of Nairobi, she got her first personal pet, a dog named Peggy, and this was just the beginning because she now has three dogs and two cats.

Being in the university meant you stay broke or you hustle. And, in the process of exploring the available earning opportunities for a young girl with zero experience in almost all fields, Miriam stumbled across some content creating sites. She gave it a try, not knowing that she would fall in love with writing to the point of it becoming her full-time job! Her passion for content creation could not be stronger, and her love for all animals could not be more genuine. When she is not writing, Miriam is out playing with her jovial pets.
