You can add cats to the list too. My cat Zane died a couple weeks ago. Sometimes I really do wonder if it’s worth it, knowing that any pet I own will probably die before I do. But even if it doesn’t make logical sense to keep putting myself through sorrow, the joy pets bring to my heart is worth more than any diamond. I don’t know when I will get another pet, but I’m sure I will have a furry friend again soon.
I still miss Rita and Gerry. I would do anything to see them again. I have to believe that someday I will.
