It was a really nervous time when all of us lost our animal when I was a youngster.
I was really affixed to that animal ever since he was just a kitten.
I would run around the beach house with something tied to a string and he would chase the string around. I even was able to use the laser pointer with him which was absolutely fun. That animal was silly because he loved to hang out in front of the Heating and A/C vents. He absolutely appreciated the air conditioning, although he also loved to go outside too. He loved to smell everything out there and believe the breeze. All of us would constantly let the animal outside, although he would constantly come back within the tenth. One night when all of us let him out, he never came back. All of us put up lost animal signs around the town, but nobody was able to find the cat. After hearing the howling of coyotes a bunch of times, I realized they must have gotten our animal on that fateful night. I had a tough time worrying about our exhausting cat. I thought he must be devastated out there without any air conditioning on the hot afternoons. I also thought he could have gotten disfigured or even hit by a car, I wasn’t absolutely sure what happened to him. Even to this afternoon, I still keep a picture of that seasoned animal in our purse because I guess about him all the time. I have never had another animal since that time. I really believe afraid that something awful might happen to another animal and I couldn’t deal with something love that. It’s also kind of nice not having to worry about pet dander that blocks up the air filters.
