    Default A pet's Ten Commandments

    A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.........

    1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

    2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

    3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

    4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

    5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

    6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

    7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

    8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

    9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

    10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch.
    Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

    ~Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.
    Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters
    ~Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs! Remember, the same goes for cat owners!

    This is just so true and so sweet.

    God I must be getting sentimental in my old age, number 10 could quite feasibly make me cry if I thought about it long enough!

    Had never read this before and started sniffling from the first one as the owner of an elderly cat who is going to leave her for four days. Mind you, my cousin will be feeding and petting her but it's still a cruel thing to do.

    I've been there with my cats when the time has come...it's not easy, folks. It was quite possibly the truest, hardest, most profound thing I've ever done.

    Makes me cry just thinking about it.
