Welcome, I believe you too are an animal lover and there’s pet(s) in your life, that’s much more…an animal companion. Well these guys have average life one-seventh or so of us, and thus we may see many pets, many generations in our Lifetime- can’t help it.
It still comforts if your pet dies a natural death in old age. Guess I am two time unlucky- My pet died. Died too early, at about four-and-half or five years of age.
