An­ton summed up the feel­ings of pet own­ers

Derby Telegraph - - LETTERS -

WHAT a mov­ing ar­ti­cle by An­ton Rip­pon, “The vet looked after me as well” (De­cem­ber 5).

I am sure all pet own­ers will have shared his sor­row. Los­ing a cat, or dog, is like los­ing an old friend.

Our pets be­come part of the fam­ily. Like hu­mans they are not per­fect. They are some­times moody, knock things over, and do dam­age. But when you are ill they know it and will sit with you, pro­vid­ing a com­fort­ing pres­ence. An­ton summed up well how ev­ery cat owner feels on the day they leave us.
