We experienced a sudden and traumatic death of one of our beloved cats this week, Zorro. Each week I try and write about things that command my attention, and would be remiss if I did not write about this heartbreaking matter.
We were fortunate enough to be asked to adopt Buster & Zorro over 9 years ago. Technically, our neighbors said we were the ones being chosen and therefore they adopted us. We have been so lucky to have such loving, ever-present companions in our home.
Pets are lovely. They can make an empty house feel full. They bring consistency and love everyday, every moment. It’s no wonder people get so attached to their pets. They indeed do become family.
The surprising part of this whole sad situation was the common experience the loss of a loved pet has with our friends and family. So many of us have lost these wonderful creatures, the sweet animals that fill our homes and fill our hearts.
At the very least I though Zorro deserved a mention in this blog. Although the truth is he was much more than a weekly fascination. He was our sweet green-eyed boy.
