    Cat

    I have had many pets, but none of them were really mine. Everyone else got them and i happened to be around. One day i found a stray cat and it kept coming around so i kept it. He was really my only pet, and we had good times together, but he got so friendly he thought he could...

    Alligator: 2010-2012

    It's been over two months now.

    It doesn't hurt the way it did then, but I still miss her. Every day. Probably at least a couple of times a week, I look at her bed, or where she used to sit on the couch, or I just suddenly stop what I'm doing because somehow her absence has become really noticeable. And I...

    1 year ago today I had to put my beautiful

    husky shepard and chow mix, best friend ever, down. He was almost 12, and I should be thankful he was with me that long, because big dogs don't live as long as small ones, but I miss him every day. I will most likely both cry and laugh today. Cry because he is no longer here...

    My poor old sweet dog was attacked by a "lab"

    that was running loose in our neighborhood. She was really old, not sure how old because I took her in when her "Parents" passed away. She had an extra 3 almost 4 years with us, and she was so grateful. Such a sweetheart. The lab turned out to be a pit bull/lab mix that had...

    My wife got me a beautiful little calico kitten

    for Christmas. My whole life I have always been a cat person. This poor kitten had had such a rough start to her life. She was found near death in an apartment at 3 weeks old and after being nursed to health spent the next 8 months barely skirting disaster. The people we got her...

    Missing Casey

    I had a German Shepard named Tori when I was a kid. I guess we got her when I was four, and she lived until I was 16. We grew up together, and being an interverted kid, I guess I could say she was my best friend.She died during the summer. My family had friends over for a cook...

    Flash may have been a dwarf hamster,

    but I lost him tonight and it hurts. It's the first time in months I've cried and I have a feeling I'm not done yet. My sister buried him in the backyard and maybe I'll go to see the little grave in a few days. Good-bye, Flash, I'll miss you!

    Ren, R.i.p.

    Ren was our Chihuahua that we have had since I was 5 years old.  He lived a good, long life and died at the ripe age of 17.  He was so awesome, very protective and very Alpha-Male, even when we got our German Shepherd.  He was awesome, and he was the only pet...

    This past Sunday my best friend died.

    I killed her. It was a horrific accident but I feel guilty nonetheless. It just so happens that my best friend had four legs and a big fluffy tail she held straight up like a squirrel. I had raised her since she was only a month old. I rescued her from a shelter where she chose...

    Today I lost my dwarf hamster,

    Dexter. In the past I had a gerbil, but never had the connection that Dexter and I had. He was located to the left side of my bed so in the middle of the night I'd look over to him. He was comforting. We developed a bond. I've been bawling all day and cannot feel worse. I can't...
