All Hail the Queen of Dragons

Lady Vox did not survive the day yesterday. She was dead when I got home.

I wish keeping pets wasn't so hard. There should be some rule that they outlive us, or at least die when we do. We give them everything, sometimes more than a child because a child can grow up and take care of herself but a pet never can. They depend on us for all of their lives. And when they die, it's very hard not to wish we could die too because we're certain there was something we could have done, if we had only known.

I'm taking a break from small creatures to love and care for and just focusing on my sweet and beloved cat for now. One’s heart can only take so much of this.
