I Miss My Cat

    I miss my cats I had eight of them.

    I left them behind when I moved out of the family home after a relationship breakdown. I get photos and updates a bit but not sure if I would have pets again as they become family and hurts when not around.

    I Miss My Snickers So Much

    My cat snickers was 1 year and 9 months. He was always an inside cat, so the vet said there was no need to get him vaccinated. Recently I moved to the country and he had been anxious to go outside, but I wouldn't let him because I was afraid something would happen to him...

    His name was Dommino.

    He was a tuxedo. Black and/or white. He ran away about a month ago. I should've got him neutered...Hez probably dead. We had extreme wind chills that were within the minus forties temperatures. (Celsius) Hoping he comes home alive. This song was his favorite. Domino-Jessie J.

    My Heart Is Broken

    I miss my cat so much... I couldn't even use his name in my name for this forum.  It was (?) Dickens.  He was a gigantic pain, but also the love of my life.  He was SO affectionate, would jump up and give hugs around my neck, nuzzle, nibble, cuddle.  He got...

    Missing Sweetpea

    My cat, Sweetpea, died on Friday after a wonderful 16 years.  She was a great sidekick--a good companion when needed, full of affection, but also an independent little pixie that I just got amused observing.  She's been a part of my life so long that people...

    A year ago I got a cat named Boo.

    He had FIV (HIV for cats), I knew this right from the start. I wanted to take home a cat that most likely would never leave the shelter. What I didn't know is the many other things he had. Urinary issues and anxiety. After a year of trying multiple medications, dietary foods...

    I miss my cat more than I miss my last gf.

    When I was going thru my divorce, I decided to get a cat. Adjusting to being alone after 10 years is kind of difficult. So I saw an ad in the newspaper for free kittens. I dropped by the place, and this one little black and white kitten ran right up to me and would not leave...

    We as pet lovers become very attached to our pets, and why not. They are by the front door when you get home ( you can leave for five minutes and get the same reaction  from them as if you have been away FOREVER!) They do not judge, or disappoint, they just accept. When you...

    A few days ago, my sweet little cat Jack was

    hit by a car sometime during the night. Our neighbor informed us the next morning. According to my husband, thankfully it looks like it was a quick death and Jack likely didn’t suffer. I’ve never experienced the death of a close friend, not until now. A year and a half ago...
