There's no better way to relax than to sit on the sofa in front of the TV, cat on lap and cup of tea in hand. At least that's what we think here at HuffPost UK Lifestyle.
But they're not just nice to cuddle up to, having a cat or dog at home is good for your health. Research shows that pets not only improve self-esteem and reduce loneliness but children who live with a pet in their first year are more likely to be healthier than those who do not.
For this reason HuffPost's GPS For The Soul asked readers to send in pictures of their pets relaxing.
