6 Ways Pets Increase our Home

The Feng Shui Energy with Pets 

When it comes to our furry friends, we love them like family, but did you know that they enrich our feng shui life? Yes, they make our lives better and anyone who has ever owned a pet knows this. As with most living things, a pet’s energy affects us and vice versa. Stagnant energy is one of the most damaging components in Feng Shui and animals greatly reduce it. Here are 6 ways animals can improve our homes and lives:


There is no love like that of an animal. It is the purest form of love and worship that one can experience. They love you in good times and bad, are always happy to see and feel you when you are down, and make your day a little brighter. Even on the worst of days, your pet is there for you to lift your spirits and give you much-needed love.


Harley the cat doesn’t really apply here … he would much rather love you, because no one is an enemy in his eyes, but dogs and cats offer security in every form. Have you recently seen a dog harm a child in its own driveway? The family cat jumped into action to save the day. Animals are extremely loyal creatures and when their owners are in danger, they often step on the plate in unexpected ways.

Yang energy

Animals are active. They bark, meow, swim, run and poke around the house when they are happy. Nothing arouses energy better than an animal. And nothing lifts your spirits than seeing your pet hopping around happily. When Harley tosses his mouse in the air or brings it upstairs to share with us, nothing makes us laugh anymore.


Animals take care of us in several ways. They make us happy, laugh and share our tears. They tend to us as we tend to them. Caring for an animal is one of the best feng shui tools in a home. If you take care of them, they will take care of you, a great lesson as you learn goals and intentions. For clarity, you need to focus on your goals.

Friendly and welcoming

Nothing welcomes a guest to your home or office more than an animal. When I had my retail studio a few years ago, Harley was a quick addition. I adopted him from the local animal shelter and was amazed at how he boosted morale and eased everyone in the office. The postman, UPS girls, and other tenants quickly became our friends. I’ve even had customers drop by to give him toys and say hello. Everyone, including me, loves Harley.

Feng Shui lucky charms

Pets are known in Feng Shui for not only symbolizing good energy, but cats are considered good for financial happiness and dogs help increase and penetrate the energy in a home.
Whatever the argument, pets are undoubtedly a great way to add strength to a home. They are great for both kids and adults. I live on a two acre farm and have grown up with animals all my life. We had horses, cats, guinea pigs, fish and more. Over the years I’ve learned that animals in my life not only make me happier, they also make me softer. They help put our lives into perspective and teach us what is most important, love and family.
