"What makes up your non-human family?"
I had a white cat named Kitty when I was a child. She used to meet me at the bus stop and walk me home.
My first Shih-Tzu was adopted from the Humane Society. She was older when we got her so we only had a few years with her, but she was the best behaved dog you ever saw. Her name was Gin-Gin.
My second Shih-Tzu, Bandit, was my fur-baby. We had him for 15 years, but in 2009 he succumbed to seizures. I miss him every day.
