Kris, thank you so much for sharing your story about Marcus. I love a fur baby, too. Her name is Georgia, and I love her with all my heart. She is everything to me. She is only six, but I think about “the time” I will need to say goodbye. Perhaps I think about it too much. In fact, a few years ago, after crying in her fur thinking about “the time,” I decided to do something about it because it was too painful. I wrote about it here, if you are interested. I will bookmark your story for the future. And thank you again. To be honest, I almost couldn’t get myself to read it.
