Our furry family member is very sick and my husband and I have been busy with vet appointments and animal hospital visits. There’s been no time for blogging but lots of time talking about our orange and white cat’s nicknames and silly things she’s done over the years. We don’t have time for memories yet because Thursday, the cat, is still with us. We’ll have some more time with her to create new anecdotes and tales.
Several friends have lost pets over the last few months or are dealing with a pet illness. For them, and us, pets are more than short creatures that run around or sleep all day or bite your toes. They are our kids and sisters and brothers and aunties and uncles. They are our family and they accept us no matter what shape or form and love us beyond our human understanding. True love.
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to. ~Alfred A. Montapert
