I know. It makes me sad too. But you're right. I'm always glad to think of how lucky that particular kitty was that they had a home and family nice enough to mourn them. There are way too many that never even get that.
I know! Shelters just break my heart! I mean, I'm glad they're there for all the homeless animals but it so terrible seeing all those animals without homes in the first place ;A; My brother volunteered at a shelter for his high school community service hours and I'd go with him sometimes. We just wanted to take them all home with us and give them all the loves they deserve <3
