  • A Pet's Ten Commandents...

    (#10 made me cry....)

    1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

    2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

    3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

    4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your
    entertainment, but I have only you.

    5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

    6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

    7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember
    that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

    8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative,
    ask yourself if something might be bothering me.
    Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been
    in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

    9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too,
    will grow old.

    10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me
    please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't
    make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me
    if you are there, because I love you so. ALWAYS!

    ~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets.
    Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be
    a much dull ER, less joyful experience without
    God's critters~
    Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We
    do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded
    by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth
    and has four legs!

    Thank you. That was beautiful. I love my pets as well.

    It is because I am attuned to my pets that I notice any peculiar behaviours and get them vet checked. As such I gave one of my girls a year's longer life and hope to get at least that amount of time from her brother who has the same CRF (renal failure) that she did. Beautiful loving cats that provide unconditional love.

    As for #10 - my beautiful little girl Cleopatches died on my chest during the night. I knew she was going. She was paralyzed and she was so cold. There was a snow storm and no way to get her to the vet that night. I just tried to comfort her and keep her warm for her last night.

      Awwwww Rube... How heart wrenching that must have been. But how comforting for Cleopatches.
