Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world. In fact, it's more common to have a dog or a cat in a household than it is to have a child.
Our latest poll asks how many pets you have in your household.

It is with a heavy heart that I do this poll .. as I am grieving.
I would love to say that I still had 2 dogs and 1 cat .. however after 15 years I have just lost my "little soul mate" Taurie.
Taurie was a rescue dog .. Foxy/Chihuahua/Kelpie/Pug cross. His relatives had one heck of a time it seems! He was my shadow .. I miss him terribly but he still lives in my heart and always will. (oh dear .. need a tissue).
With a happy heart I also say .. that I still have my other darling dog and 1 cat.
Jasa is a rescue dog .. Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound/Whippet cross .... a sweet/soft waggy little darling. Knows now that he's Top Dog !
Tigger my rescue cat (as the name - ginger with stripes) "His Majesty" thinks he's the King of the Castle (and I let him be) .
I cannot ever think of a home without an animal to love .. they love back unconditionally .. and make a house a HOME!
I am so sorry for your loss @BibbyKat. I'm sure all in the Workshop community will be sending you virtual hugs from afar. Hope you are OK at this tough time.
