Default heaven for pets

I teared up as I miss my pet so much. A cat, I had 21 years, longer than my own children.
I do believe we see our pets again. They are "souled" animals. Right now they are waiting for us, just like you said, and there will be a happy reunion.

Default Hi peeper

I have great empathy for you missing your pet too. A friend of mine made a collage of "scruffy's" outings. One picture for each of his 21 years. Now when I look at it, the personality is evident. It is over my dresser. It has a few wiskers, tags, parts of his harness in there too. Maybe your whole family could do this in rememberence of your pet too. Great project to do. Smiles come more often than tears after a few years. hugs to all of you. ginnie

I have my favorite of photos of my late kitties, on my screensaver, on the computer. I made a file and used the Windows screensaver program. All their funny antics, and beautiful portraits. I couldn't look at them for the first months, but now I can. They remind me of the very good times we all had.

Pain tends to envelop one and I at least can lose some perspective when it does. The photos bring me back from that.
Nothing is permanent in life, everything moves along to an end.
So living in the moment is very important IMO.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.

Default Animals in heaven

This is so funny we had a conversation in my sunday school class about animals and heaven. We even had a talk with our pastor and this is what i had to say : I believe our pets are able to be more like jesus than any of us will ever be simply because ,jesus loved unconditionaly and our pet do also but how many people are able to do that everyday, none that i know of and even as christians we have to ask for help each and every day with this (to love our fellow man without judgment). So i have to say i believe our pets will join us in heaven and those who have gone on will be waiting for us. I know i would be lost without my girls sunny and lizzy, there is no way to remain down with 2 shih tzu in the house ,lol
so to all who have lost a beloved friend my heart goes out to you and i will pray you find some peace and know they are in good hands until you are together again
hugs to all
