Up until recently, I hadn't owned a pet since junior high. But that isn't why I joined the StackExchange for Pets. I joined because I failed to bring an orphaned kitten to maturity. Had I known it was going to be with me for such a short time, I would have taken more photos than I did. This one that I use for my profile here was taken just hours before it died. I only knew it for one month, but it will live in my heart forever.
