I remember bringing you home so small you fit in one hand.
I can still picture your older "brother" who I thought would like a playmate trying to attack you when I took you out of the carrier.
I can remember being so afraid you'd be hurt that night I took you into bed to hold you and protect you.
I never imagined that for 18 years you'd always sleep that way every night cradled in my arm or how hard it would be for me to sleep without you there.
I remember the first time you brought me a toy after I threw it and how much you loved playing fetch even though you're a cat not a dog
You silly cat.
I can picture coming home to the phone receiver on the floor because my friends didn't believe me when I told them you answered the phone - well sort of - why did you always race me to knock it off the hook?
I remember you biting the vet and me trying to keep a straight face
I remember pretzels all over the floor when I forgot and left the bag out
How many times did I say " I love you even when you're bad"
Did you think you had to set a record?
You silly cat
Most of all I remember how you made me feel when I saw you in the window watching me come home.
God please scratch his ears until I can again
Saying goodbye to you yesterday was one of the hardest things in my life
I love you my crazy little furball

Hopefully, this wasn't the last of 9.
Sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is like losing family.

Oh man. You made this guy cry, strmmywether.

I am an animal lover. I've had pet dogs, cats, hamsters, and even a pet squirrle once. I gave her peanuts in the shell on my balcony every morning. I trained it to sit up, put its front paws on my hand, and take the peanut right out of my hand.

The part of your post that got to me is when you spoke of sleeping with your cat every night.

I go to sleep every night with my little Jack Russell Terrior in bed with me. She's up against me somewhere when I go to sleep, and she's up against me somewhere when I...and her...wake up.

And when I pull up at night after work, the joyfull yapping from the back yard is indeed the best part of my night.

My wife and I got her 6 years ago, and when we divorced after 9 years of marriage, there was no fight over her. My wife loved her, but she said "She was always more "your dog", so you take her".

Animals are a great blessing to mankind, and the ones that make good pets particularly so. I dont even like to think about the time when my dog will be gone. It'll be awful getting in bed that 1st night.

God bless you, and when you feel like you can, get another one. Animals do indeed feel and appreciate love.

Zach sounds like he was a wonderful friend, strmmy. Like susea said - pets are some of the best friends one can ever have. I'm glad you and Zach had each other and am sorry for the hurt you are feeling now.

Somehow it just doesn't seem fair that our pets' lifespans are so much shorter than ours.

All the sympathies for your loss of Zach. May God keep him in pretzels until you're together again.
