    Hi gang, Well over the past few weeks my depression has been getting bad, I have had that dead,cold and empty feeling and it was lasting way to long, I feel nothing. It was really getting the best of me.
    So yesterday out of the blue I found myself a kitten and I fell in love with her right away, I know I said that after I had to put my cat down I said never never again will I get another. And I am so happy that I did, she is the sweetest thing. Now my apartment does not feel so emptyand neither do I.

    That's great! I am glad you found a sweet little kitten to keep you company.
    So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

    TFU, so glad to hear Livi is being such a positive for you!. I have had better days. My dog, Wylie has been glued to my hip for the last three days. He knows I'm not feeling good about things. He's always there for me.

    Hi D, It's so true that animals can sense that there is something wrong and they have a way of making things a little better, like you said before without trying.
    How old is Wylie?
    hope you are feeling a little better.

    Wylie is 3, we got him from the Humane Society when he was 2. He's a pure breed mini-schnauzer. Still can't figure why they got rid of him. Well behaved, trained and a sweetheart. I knew from the moment we met that he was the one for me.

    Sounds like a wonderful dog. The dog we had growing up, an American Eskimo, was a little angel. Whenever I would cry she would put her head in my lap and wag her tail gently with that big puppy-eyed look. I think it was a look of compassion. That's what it seemed like anyway. She was a sensitive one as far as emotions. We got her from a family where the dad was physically abusive so I think that made her more attuned to people's moods. Anyway I miss her, the dog we have now is just a big dope lol, at least as far as being intuitive like that. She's sweet, just not the same.
