I found this off of a friends link and I am hoping that you will allow me to stay. See I have not lost a pet in that they have gone to the rainbow bridge. We had six cats whom we had to find new homes for because our house was foreclosed on. I know that is not the same as a pet death, but I miss them terribly. I have chronic health problems and have been battling strep throat and pneumonia. When I would get sick all of my guys would be piled on top of me, purring, making bread and loving up on me. When I was depressed my black boy Shadow would follow me around and when I would finally settle he would curl himself up into a small ball and sleep with me until I was forced to move him to get a drink of water. He would follow me to the bathroom and meow pitifully outside the door. As soon as I got back into bed or went out to watch TV he would be back in my lap. These guys were my furry kids and I miss them so much if I think about it at all I start to cry. I hope you will allow me to post my memories of my fur-babies on here and maybe I will start to heal.
