I'm feeling much better now and my daughter ask me to keep her dog alex [a pug ] while they were on vacation for a week. I have a rat terrier named cece, my angle and loving pet who brings me such joy when i'm sick. Well she hates alex but tolerates him. She has alot of balls and toys but for her to play with only. She guards them with her life, he can look but don't touch. He does have his own toys. Yesterday i took them outside to play and alex found an old toy of cece's that was too old and ugly even for her to play with. When we went back inside he carried the old toy with him. I let him since he wanted it and cece had abandon it. After supper my husband ask where cece was, she always sits in his chair after supper until bedtime, but not this evening. She was under our bed and would not come out. He called me in their and under our bed was cece and all of her toys plus the old one alex found. He had to get her and all her toys out and baby her for awhile due too all her trauma. He put all her toys back in their basket and an hour later put her to bed. A short time later he called me in the bedroom again, cece was asleep in her basket and under her chin was that old, ugly toy, it was so cute and touching i cried. When your sick and down a pet can bring such joy and comfort. TEARS OF JOY> DELTA

Delta, it's great to hear that you are feeling better :) Man.... we have to make the best of those days, don't we? I am almost sure that I have a couple more of the bad ones in my future, so I do make the best out of a good day, or try to. Love the Terrier story. We have a Jack Russel Terrier (terrorist) named Daisy. She has a toy box also. I tolerate her, and the wife adores her.

Just keep getting better until you can't stand no mo :)

Oh Delta,  Your story brought tears to my eyes.  Cece sounds exactly like my precious Babycakes.  She was a Shih-Tzu who will be gone one year this Friday March 17th.  She adored her toys and "babies" so much I was always buying her new ones all the time and pig ears to chew one were her favorite treat.  When my husband and I (when I was still married) decided she needed a playmate we got another Shih-Tzu we named Isabelle.  It took Baby about two years to adjust to her.  She also was like that with her toys and often hid them and growled at Izzy to not come near them.  When Babycakes died last year we buried her with all of her beloved toys except one that I kept. 
I now have a fat (21 pounds) grey tabby cat named Normandy.  He has quite the personality.  He sits at the back french doors and watches the bird feeders for birds.  He actually chirps when he sees one and his tail starts to twitch really fast and he will even drool on himself.  He was a kitten out at the stables where my mom keeps her horse boarded and he was pretty well starved as his mom had disappeared and the kittens didnt know how to hunt for them selves.  They were eating frogs and grasshoppers.  Anyway he is my little boy...

It's amazing how just talking about our pets makes us happy. I could just see your big old cat, and the love you have for him. Even old memories makes us smile. Sometimes the medical problems we have become overwhelming and a pet helps us to forget and have joy in our life. It feels good to laugh. DELTA
