But as I read the article, my interest turned to frustration and then anger. In my life I have been fortunate enough to have cared for many furbabies, both cats and dogs. Some I have been fortunate enough to rescue from hostile enviroments and provide them a loving home while others have wandered into my life and have enriched it in ways I can never begin to calculate…then there are the furbabies that have chosen me, and I am lucky that they have.
For each and every furbaby that has entered my life (and yes I dare to call them furbabies) I have been blessed to be their mom, if even for a short period of their lives here on earth. However I have never, ever thought to compare the love I have for my furbabies and the bond we share to the bond a parent and a child has…and the people who think that a furbaby is just a pet, well I really don’t know what to say other than I feel sorry for them because they are missing out on the unconditional love tht only a furbaby can give to his or her human.
There are many things I could say to this lady about the love I have for my furbabies, but the only thing that comes to mind is something I have seen often on Facebook.
The only time an animal has ever broken my heart is when they crossed the rainbow bridge.
I know when my time comes to cross that bridge I will literally be buried by all of the fur babies who have left their paw prints on my heart before they crossed.
