How would you react to your pet’s death?

Radhika Sanghani, a writer for The Telegraph, does “not understand how adults can care so much about a small little animal that will inevitably die, was never able to speak to you anyway and let’s face it, you can never fully trust.”

Sanghani presumed that when Miley Cyrus sang to a 60ft image of her dog that died recently that it was a publicity stunt. Sanghani later conceded that Miley’s heartfelt tweets convinced her that the singer was truly in pain.

Sanghari asks readers to answer this poll question:

How would you react to your Pet’s death?

  1. Take the day off work and organize a funeral
  2. Carry on with my life — it is just an animal

With Sanghani’s lack of empathy, she would obviously choose B.

What would your answer be?

How can fully grown adults care so much about their pets dying? from The Telegraph.

I am within 2-3 months of going No Contact with my sociopath husband. I have multiple pets (cats) and I debated about how to “rehome” them. I decided “no one left behind” and will take all of them with me. I started looking for a house with that in mind. I had asked my trusted pet sitter what to do and she showed me a house nearby her that has been for sale for almost a year. The house is small and cozy with room for all my fur babies.

I think my pet family has helped me find a great house (I made an offer and it’s under contract now) and they will all go with me. Now I have no worries about whether he would hurt them or use them as “barter.” The lawyer said take *everything* I thought I would possibly want or need and that includes my pets. Part of me cannot wait to implement my escape plan.

Oh I hope and pray you get it. You will get what you need. I love animals so much. I would never let a control-freak man around my fur baby!!! Bless you, and I wish you the best. Keep us posted.

Thank you so much pattywack – I am hopeful. I think it’s great how my concern for my animals led me to helpful people and a good place to live-thank God. Bless you and your fur baby too.

I have two cats aged 18 and 11. We know the 18 year old is living on borrowed time. She is so precious to us – we do anything we can to make her comfortable and really spoil her! When she passes, I know we’ll be sad. The last time I lost a beloved cat, for two years I cried every time I saw cats on TV. You don’t realized how many cat food commercials there are until you start crying when you see them!

I just have to tell y’all about my SIL’s dog – well one of several that she has. She lives in the countryside with a farmer’s canal running along one side of her property. One day a few years ago, a car pulled off the road next to the canal and a little boy about 8-10 years old got out and threw a puppy over the fence into the canal. SIL saw this from the kitchen window and she frantically yelled to her husband. He ran to the canal, jumped the fence and was able to rescue the puppy. Thank heavens, the puppy didn’t seem any worse for the wear. And now they have a wonderful addition to their furry family. Oh, sorry, forget to tell you to get a hankie before reading this!

I have pity for people who do not understand loving an animal. IMHO, anyone who cannot love an aniimal cannot really love or just never had the chance. My animals have been a huge blessing in my life and they talk without words, love unconditionally (even cats although they do sometimes get angry at me).

Studies have proven that people who abuse animals as children often grow up to abuse people. It just makes sense that they are lacking either opportunity or empathy. I rescue any injusred animal I see. I feel that God put it into my path for me to help.
It is the same with people, I could not walk on by a person in danger or lying on the street like many have learned to do.

I guess this is one of the traits that got me into marrying a psychopath who said he felt so terrible about raping his roommate’s girlfriend. I later realized he was only sorry he got caught. How could I have ever done that? I was 18, my mother just died and he used smoke and mirrors to decieve me. He did not

How could I have ever done that? I was 18, my mother just died and he used smoke and mirrors to decieve me. He took advantage of my emotional state and tricked my rational mind. It was not a romantic union, I was taking in a poor sad puppy…with rabies.

Being pregnant I felt I had to marry him and not knowing that evil existed, I thought we could learn and grow together. I ignored my instincts that told me to run, but there was no one to tell and nowhere to go. I did try to run from the wedding, wishing my knight it shinging armor would be waiting outside but there was no knight in shining armor and sister stopped me.

He raped me on our wedding night.
