    That would really be an excellent idea and very uplifting. I don't have children so my pets my big chow mix dog and my 6 cats all rescues are the loves of my life. I think that this would be an uplifting idea. Mine have helped me so much when I am in pain it is amazing. Hello fellow pet lovers. Smokey, Narla, Lucky, Mittens, Bitsy, Belle and Grace all like the idea too. My Narla is an probable IC cat so she definately wants to be included.

      I have two rats (not a typo). Kuja is a mild-tempered blue and Zimone is a perky one-eyed brown agouti. Her eye literally fell out. And I thought I had problems.

        Dear Christine -
        Our cocker spaniel puppy, Maggie, really is adorable......big brown eyes and full of mischief!
        Loves to play and cuddle, and will greet my son at the door with the leash in her mouth!(just a subtle hint).
        Maggie is just over a year old, and was a "rescue", too, in a way........I call her my underfoot AND overfoot dog, because she is often underfoot....and she will sometimes rest her head on my foot, when I watch TV, etc!
        Our pets make such a difference in our lives....

          I think that's a great idea. Pets i have found can be more comforting than people sometimes.
          I have a mean cat that i nickname Church (from Pet Cemetery) because she can be sooooo mean. But she has her sweet moments. I have a Chinchilla named Chilly and she's the sweetest animal ever. I have a dog but i don't live with her anymore, but she was there to cheer me up.
          An animal section would be a good idea, there would definately be lots of new stories to tell. <img src="graemlins/bunny.gif" border="0" alt="[bunny]" /> <img src="graemlins/bunny.gif" border="0" alt="[bunny]" /> <img src="graemlins/bunny.gif" border="0" alt="[bunny]" />

            Hey! I think it's a great idea! :-) I hope anyone that has a chronic illness and in pain can have a pet.
            I have a three year old Cat named Kouvu (name is from the lion king). He is huge and all full of beautiful fur. And then there is my newest Petey whom was given by a friend that could not properly take care of him. He is a Miniature Dauchsund (weiner dog). I got him at the beginning of summer and even though I really can't afford another mouth to feed because of disability status, he has been a lifesaver to me when depressed he lifts me up and when he in pain he is there always unconditionally to offer his support with no judgements, just love.
            If you or someone you know is stuck at home and unable to work I STRONGLY suggest getting a lap animal. They are the best!
            Love and Blessings,
            May the Lord Bless you and keep you,
            Sparky :-)

              I love this idea. I love to talk about our cat, but some people just don't get the connection some of us have with our animals. And there are ALWAYS crazy stories when it comes to animals. We definitely have a spoiled cat Gabbie. Gabbie is a tortie and got her name because as a kittens she would talk when she ate, was in the litter box, walking around the house..etc...
              She loves my husband and I, but HATES new people (our vet calls it cattitude (baddddd). She doesn't run and hide, but likes to stalk them. It is truly embarrassing. She is our $2500 cat, due to the fact that she loves to eat EVERYTHING. As a kitten she ate an earplug that got stuck. To make a LONG story short we couldn't part with her and joke about how our VISA bill would be empty, but we had to take a loan out for our cat. <img src="graemlins/lmao.gif" border="0" alt="[lmao]" />
              In the end she makes us laugh, is loving, playful, and overall our only child at this time. I am having our first baby this weekend (we hope the induction takes) and we are realizing she will have to learn to accept one more member, but think she will do fine (she does warm up to people after a few days).
              Anyway..Good idea Misery!!!
              Do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around..that's what it's all about..whoooo!
              While we have the gift of life,
              it seems to me the only tragedy
              is to allow part of us to die --
              whether it is our spirit,
              our creativity,
              or our glorious uniqueness.

                  I think it's a GREAT idea. I too have my own "babies" that always seem to know how to make me feel better when I'm down. We have a 1 year old cat named Azreal(from the smurfs) who is grey and white and we rescued him from one of the barns when we first moved in this house. He had half of his paw cut off and we brought him in and ended up taking him to the vet. Hubby wanted to "put it out of it's misery" but I'm too softhearted for all that. He was aprx 3 weeks old when we found him. Now he is a very fat, spoiled, loving cat who always seems to understand when "mommy" doesn't feel good and will come lay in bed with me and lick my hand or my forehead. I guess it's just his way of comforting me like I did for him when he was sick. We also have a 7 month old lop eared rabbit that was given to my son on Easter. We call him Bunny Foo Foo, only cause we couldn't think of anything better. Foo Foo is completly house trained and even potty's in the litter box. He has free run of the house and loves to be outside. He has a 15'X 5' cage we built him so he can play outside without anything getting him. My youngest son has a 4 month old kitten who was rescued outside along the interstate when she was about 4 weeks old. Her name is Sheba. She is a very loving cat and is perfect for my son, he can lug her around all over the house and she just lays in his arms without a care in the world. Little does she know that on the 27th she's being taken to the vet to be spayed and declawed <img src="graemlins/eek.gif" border="0" alt="[eek]" /> she should REALLY love me And last but certainly not least is the newest addition. She is a 5 month old purebred german shepard who was found up off of the interstate near a steel plant in Chicago. A friend of mine who's hubby drives semi almost ran her over. He stopped to make sure he was ok and she came right up to him. He said she was covered in oil and bits of sharred metal and he felt so bad for her he brought her home. Well then me and my big heart couldn't say no when he asked me if we wanted to take her. Her name is Shay and she seems to be a very good dog so far(only had her a few weeks) and is responding well to training. Her and the rabbit are having some issues but I think they have contacted their lawyers and are coming up with an agreement. <img src="graemlins/lmao.gif" border="0" alt="[lmao]" /> So there is my pet story in a nutshell.
