I know. However, you gave your cat a good life and I'm sure you're friend gave her dog a good life. The only thing that helps me with grieving is knowing that I gave him a good life. He was quite a character = )
I'm sorry for the loss of your cat. We just lost our 24 yr old cat and I'm still grieving.
I'm so sorry about your sweet kitten. She looks adorable in her picture.
