This group is for those that share their home with a non-human companion that is more like family than just a "pet" (but we can call them pets). Feel free to post their photos, etc. (administrator: Travis Grubbs)

Comment by john on Monday

Dang. That was so quick! My heart and prayers go out to your and your family. It can be really hard to lose a member of the family especially when you had just been given some hope. He is now playing in a large field where everyone plays fetch and with large crystal bowls full of ice water sitting beside huge platters of treat style dog biscuits. He will be waiting for you and the other members of your family to join him when it is your turn to go to the next stage. Tail wagging, waiting patiently, just as he did whenever you left him at home for a short trip to the store and he would wait by the door for your return.

bambi I have to get it approved by the powers that be but already put in a request. by the way I got a dog not a cat Judith has the cats

Comment by Bambi on Sunday

Cat, dogs or people can go either way gain or loss weight It's best to see your vet a diabetic animal is as serious as we a human. There is treatment as Doris's cat is now on, when I worked for vet's it was difficult explaining to clients the severity. I think as mentioned a site animal D would be useful.
