They Have Never Lived With One
You can't see him but sweet PoohGirl is on her daddy's lap in this picture. She was always with him and didn't have much to do with anyone else. She also slept beside him every night.
After her daddy passed away in 2015 she was never the same. She stopped eating for several days and when she began eating again she ate very little. She would eat for a few weeks and stop eating again for 3 or 4 days. We tried different things and many different foods to try to get her to eat better but she refused. She kept this routine up for over two years. She eventually got sick because of not eating enough and she lost too much weight. Nothing we did helped her get better. She missed her daddy so much she could not stop grieving.
She would lay in my lap and sleep at my feet after my Shug passed away...but I just was not her daddy that she loved so very much.
Those who say cats and dogs are not capable of loving or showing emotions have never lived with a cat or dog. They love deeply and grieve, sometimes they grieve for a very long time. No one will ever be able to convince me otherwise.
