    I can't have children of my own,

    so my pets are my babies. I got a kitten in October and now he needs an MRI. If you get a chance, will you please share his gofundme on your FB/Twitter? If you don't feel comfortable, I understand as I have never asked for handouts before, I just really want him to get better.

    This is my baby. :-) She's about to leave me,

    through no fault of hers or mine. My mission is to ensure her departure is as painless and filled with love as I can make it.

    I love my cat more than I love most people.

    She's my familiar and other half. I hate it how people think animals can't love or can't feel. I know what love is when she purrs around me with glee or when she gives me kisses (yes, she gives human kisses) and looks in my eyes. She knows me. Knows my soul. My darkness and my...

    Sure!

    when you decide to keep a pet, it is certain that u do so because u like to and not obliged by any social even legal commitments! But there are few things to consider while keeping a pet to share u a part of ur life! 1.This bet is no more free to live naturally and search its...

    I have an 8 year old Pomeranian,

    and she is the light of my life. That's her in my profile picture. I got her the summer after I graduated high school, so I don't know adult life without her. Her name is Roxi. As a 27 year old female with no husband and no children, Roxi might as well be my child. I talk about...

    I know this is off topic

    but I dont know where else to go. I am the owner of these 2 lovely cats. But I'm finding myself not being able to take care of them since my baby was born 6 months ago. My baby is a high needs baby, needs my attention all day and takes 30 minute naps, so little time for me. I...

    I had a beta fish I got from my younger sibling.

    Well, took. They kept it for awhile until they tried flushing him. I took him to my room and kept him safe. They usually live for 2-4 years I hear. I kept him alive for almost 6. I never wanted to become attached to another pet since I had lost a few.. So I never even named him...

    When I was younger I had a little fish.

    I thought the fish had lived a really long time because I had it for 8 years. Later I found out the first fish had died and was replaced by one identical without me knowing. I was devastated

    Every morning my cat Timmy jumps up on the bed

    and meows like crazy until one of us lets him under the blankets. He loves to cuddle with me and lay really close to my belly. I love him so much, I find our mornings together very precious :)

    I lost my little cat Kiko last night.

    She got out and got in the back yard with the dogs. They killed her. I'm so sad and feel sick over this.

    My cat of 10 years is really sick.

    He's been with me the whole time as people in my life come and go. He's been consistent and always been by my side. I'm always at home, so he's with me a lot of the time. He doesn't even jump on me anymore. he stopped eating altogether for the past 2 days. Seeing him sick...

    Today was quite the stressful day.

    I love sleeping late, but sadly, it didn't happen today. Why? Because my sister busted into my room and put Rocky (Male Yorkshire) on my bed. I was half asleep when she told me in a distressed tone that Rocky was having difficulty breathing. That's when all my drowsiness went...

    like having pets indoors. He's a little OCD when it comes to pet hair. We compromise but I wish my cats could hangout inside more.
