Today is P – for the April Blogging A to Z Challenge. I am using Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s “Encyclopedia of Me” to journal daily.
P is for Pets
For most of my life I have had pets – dogs and cats for sure, birds and fish, and even mice, a rat, lizard, hamsters to name a few.
There is something special, especially for children, to have a pet, care for it and bond with it. Yes, there is much sadness when they die, but the bond brings so much their growth as a caring human being.
I still miss our cat. We had her for 21 years and she has been gone over 3 years now. Her photo graces our dining room wall. I cannot imagine having another pet still. Maybe a dog would get me walking every day – but I’m not ready for that yet.
