10 Things Your Pet Would Say to You If They Could

This will bring a little lump to your throat.

A Petplace.com pet lover sent us this article and asked us to share it with you other pet lovers. We hope you enjoy it. 

A Pet’s Ten Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful. 

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old. 

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so. ALWAYS! 

Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be much duller, less joyful experience without God’s critters

Now please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!

    Pets are a treasure. As an animal lover, I loved these ten commandments.

    aw-aw-aw – awesome! I love cats. i love the way you’ve personified them without humanising them. Who wants to humanise a cat anyway? Or any animal for that matter. This is so well-written and the kitty picture is adorable.
    I added you as a friend. I hope you might be my friend too? I’m a cat lover and a cat owner too. I think our profiles fit one another nicely!

    However much they might drive us up the wall pets are a blessing and should never be forgotten or abused.

    The absolute sentence of wild cats around me is “Give me some food.”

    Great observations, and I especially like #5. I talk to my cat a lot!
