I think it is so amazing how attached we get to our babies....they are so unconditional in their love and support for us....the mere humans. I just picked Beavis' companion up from the vet, he had four teeth pulled. Of course, he came home and has gone from room to room looking for Beavis, crying out for him. It is killing me. Tyson is not the lover boy that my Beavie was...nope, Tyson is a touch me not kitty, but still sweet. Tyson is 20. I feel all of your pain everyone, I do.
