How does petting a kitty or a dog affecting the environment?

    Everything affects the environment in some way (think: every action has a reaction), but you mention one of the least impacting actions there are. Petting a kitty or puppy requires a small amount of energy. But its probably worth the energy since you are making the creature happy and maybe yourself as well. Petting encourages shedding of excess fur and hair, which will enter the environment as organic material. There’s nothing wrong with this as it is inevitable and a part of seasonal changes. Just don’t “overpet” your animal, I suppose, and you shouldn’t need to worry about your impact.
