My lizards were my first pet that was ALL mine, not my family's, but mine. I bought them and took care of 100% of their needs. My hubby already wants a snake to replace them, but I reminded him we already have a dog and a cat, and we can't afford one. He nearly cried.
It's always sad to lose a pet. I'll never forget when I was 16 and the cat I grew up with (he was two years older than me) had to be put down. Cats and dogs are especially hard to lose because it's so easy to fall in love with them. I can barely think about losing my cat and she's only 8 months.
It's 9:22PM here.
... Do we still have that time thread?
