    William J Thomas (he Loves Them Too)

    With cats, or dogs, as with children, you take what you get. No two are alike, and you can't tell by looking what their personalities will be. But you can find something to love in each of them. There is an author I think you might enjoy. His name is William J Thomas. He writes...

    More than people... Seriously.

    I truly think it's something spiritual that comes from loving an animal. I cannot imagine my life without them. I think we are blessed to be able to not only give but receive unconditional love from them. I've grown up with dogs, cats and a variety of other animals. I often...

    Pet Cohabitation

    I believe that my relationships with my animals have prepared me for the major human losses that I have faced, and will face, during the course of my life. YOU WILL OUT LIVE your pets, unless maybe you get a turtle or bird that lives to 100. I have lived with pets since I can...
