Millie,  You have my deepest sympathy in the lost of your beloved cat.

Gale,  We never forget our beloved pets, because they were members of
our family. It is so hard to lose them.

Nancy, That is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

Millie,I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.These sweet creatures have a way of capturing our hearts and breaking them when they must go.In time think of adopting another,never to replace but to fill a void and to learn to love another wonderful friend.

You love them Ann,that's why they respond this way now.They love you back and they feel safe with you and hubby.You did a good deed taking your kitties in, loving and taking such good care of them.They make our lives worth living.Ann there are many times I'm just content being with my dogs and I hate leaving them when they can't go with us.

Well my dearest little Juliet was a very bad little girl today.While mommy was busy in the kitchen she dug a nice big hole in the back of my chair. Click to enlarge                                            How can you be mad at a face like this?

Gale,  What a sweet little dog!! She is so cute! Our 2 youngest cats are really bad. They are into
everything. Nothing is safe around them. Hopefully they will calm down soon. I hope you can
fix your chair.

I wonder if anyone has a much-loved pet that's GOOD.  Peaches and Badcat are monsters ... I get so angry at them I give them just a few treats instead of a handful  Tongue out

Hi Carol,I'm not really too worried about the chair I'll just buy one of those slip covers for it.I was out in the kitchen and hubby was dozing in his chair and she just had a good time digging the hole in my chair.I would really be more upset if anything ever happened to her.I think all of my cats did some destruction too.When we first got married I bought this great suede skirt and vest which I always got compliments on.I laid the skirt on a chair to hang up later.My kitty Bubb chewed a hole right through it.lol I learned real quick to hang things up right away.lol Oh well it's just a chair!

Gale,  I pick up all my things but hubby will never learn.  He has lost a lot of things. I find where the cats
have dragged them, like under the couch and loveseat etc. lol lol

The young woman who lives next door loves her cat and forgives him destruction.  She has ruined fabric furniture upstairs and ruined leather furniture in the basement.  She says she loves him more than furniture.

When our kids were in middle school, my husband and I went to Back to School night ( our kids were about 13 and 11 the school was about 1/2 block away) we left them at home with the dog and cat.  When we came home there was a big hole in my husband's recliner on the foot rest.   My son was sitting there watching TV.  The dog had chewed a hole while he was sitting there watching TV.  I was more angry with my son than the dog.

I've talked about how BIG Badcat is.  He just won't fit on my chest and that's where he wants to nap. 
So I learned to tuck a big pillow up tight against my chest positioned so it sticks out longways.  Badcat quickly stretched out so his front half is on me and his rear half is stretched out on the pillow.    It's a little slice of heaven for both of us .

Hi Nancy,I'm not really mad at Juliet.She was forgiven almost as soon as it happened I was upset initially because when I went into the living room I thought she would be laying with Hubby or Romeo.But no she was just having a grand time of digging my chair.I could never stay mad at either one of them.They both like to tear up paper so I save all the card board tubes from paper towels and I let them shred those to get that need out of their systems.

Oh, Gale - I knew you weren't really mad at you much-loved doggy. lol lol ... Such sweet pets don't even know what anger is - they've never see it.
Of course my monster cats know when I will be angry and they push it. lol

Well Nancy now it was the two of them together.I have been busy in the kitchen making my pulled pork and potato salad.They were just a little too quiet out in the living room.The living room looked like a winter wonderland.They pulled out every tissue out of an almost new box that I just opened and shredded everyone into a hundred pieces!Now the two "ANGELS" are sleeping under their blanket on the couch. lol lol lol.I love these two as if they were my kids.So many people who don't understand animal behavior do get angry with a dog or cat,I think this is why so many end up down at the pound.My Vet is so impressed that we keep our pets until death do us part.Then that is way too soon for me.Cry
