    1. It's still worth it though if you really love animals and you can afford and you can take the time to care for them properly. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom, and for your comment.

  4. Yes!! I AGREE!! I had a pet, but since we have to move to another country, we let our relatives take care of our pet, and just after months pass by, without communications with them (because they don't answer to our massages, hmp), suddenly they message us that my pet cat died!! She was hit by the car!! Up until now, I don't know what to do and I just misses her so much. :( It hurts badly to think that she's now gone and I don't have anything to come back again in our homeland. 😣 I can't help myself but to shed a tear everytime I see a cat in social medias. :(

    My poor Knot-knot. 😭

    1. My sympathy on the lose of your beloved pet. I know how you feel. I have two cats currently, and I love them both very much. However, not a day goes by that I don't love and miss all of the pets that have been a part of my life before them. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom, and for your comment.
