In this time of war and uncertainty, where are more and more people turning for comfort?
A: To pets. According to a report on ABC World News, William McCoy, manager of the Groom-O-Rama pet store in Manhattan, has seen a 50 percent increase in sales since Sept. 11. Puppies and kittens are especially appealing. "People are coming in every day looking for cuddles and comfort," McCoy said. "They want something to hold onto."
