    Pet Mommy!

    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...

    My cat cali was always safe outdoors.

    She always made sure it was safe to cross the street. She was chasing a mouse and didn't look for cars. A car that was speeding, going much faster that the speed limit ran her over. She was only 8. Now shes gone forever.

    She was just a kitten.

    It's been close to 2 years now that's she's been gone and I still miss her so much. I miss her crying outside the shower door and sleeping in my lap while I did homework and in my bed and everything really. She was so innocent and sweet.

    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...

    I miss my cat, Fiji, terribly. On Friday, I came home and he didn't run to the door to see me like he normally would. I heard an odd meowing from my guest room. I lifted up the blankets that were hanging over the bed and he crawled out from under it. He couldn't move his back...

    My cat just died yesterday.

    We suspect that she got ran over. Her stomach was pushed into her heart and in the morning we found her barely clinging to life. I miss her more than anything. I didn't expect her to die so soon. RIP Agidor.

    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.
