:luv: I love my cat.

He has been with me for 16 years now, it sure is hard seeing him aging and wondering when that fateful day will come that I will have to be the responsible pet owner and do the final deed. But, for now he's sweet, lovable and he's always there when I come home from work...

My answers are based on personal experience, not fact.

We are on this rollercoaster ride together holding on for dear life.

3 horses

2 dogs we adopted from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah

1 cat who adopted us, bringing her six kittens along. She belongs to the kids... neither my ex nor I are cat people, so we have 'shared custody' of the cat... she goes where the kids go


8-30-05 Met David at a restaurant in Germany

3-28-06 David 'officially' proposed

4-26-06 I-129F mailed

9-25-06 Interview: APPROVED!

10-16-06 Flt to US, POE Detroit

11-5-06 Married

7-2-07 Green card received

9-12-08 Filed for divorce

12-5-08 Court hearing - divorce final

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Awww bless (F) We get so attached to them and it is heartbreaking when this time comes. I lost a cat after nearly 14 years, 2 years ago and I still miss him every now and then.

We have two cats, and lately I'm really wanting a dog. But our apartment complex has a two-pet limit, so no dog 'til we buy a house.

Growing up we always had 1-2 cats and a dog. No one in New Jersey has a dog unless they have a house (because apartments won't take them; heck, it was hard enough finding one that would take two cats) and no one can afford a house; but here most people have houses and most apartment complexes allow dogs anyway. My current apartment complex bans certain large breeds (rotties, dobies, German Shepherds, and IIRC also huskies and malamutes) and mixes but that's more than most complexes around here do. And we have a designated dog-poop yard (which, besides being marked, has a dispenser for plastic bags!).

3 beautiful Burmese cats. I've always had cats ever since I was a baby. They are currently living with my parents in England, but since we're visiting at the moment, I'm with them. Perhaps one day we'll be able to bring them over to the States, but we need a different house and location first. For now, they're very happy and very spoilt where they are, although I miss them!!

Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

I have 1 dog named Naná here in Brazil... and 3 cats (Gabriel, Skank and Ivete) that I love VERY much but never met in person since they live in the US with Dave. It's so cute that they recognize my voice and when I tell them to do something through the web cam, they do!!!

Naná turned 8 years old this year and she's been with me since she was born! She's a big part of my life and she knows me and she's been with me more than anyone else in this whole world!

Before her I've had hamsters, different kinds of birds, rabbits, fish..... so you can already tell I love animals!!! :luv:
