50 Years of Family Critters
This project started out as an heirloom document for my grandchildren. That is still the main purpose. It had been expanded by family members who read some of the rough drafts to share these stories with others. With this input, I offer these stories to all that are interested.Fifty years, half a century, two score and ten, five decades. Sounds like a long time. It would be 350 in dog or cat years! The critters (pets) I've shared my life with. This book describes fifty years of living with some of the creatures of this planet other than humans. Most people have interactions with other animals (good and bad) at some point in their lives. Every person has some interesting story to tell about how they were affected by some pet or animal they came into contact with or were told about or read about. My story covers a roughly fifty-year period from early childhood up to when this story was published. There are many animals that I have interacted with that have affected me in some way. I have listed just the critters that I actually lived with. Some of the animals lead good long lives while others' times were cut short for one reason or another. Some of the critters are not your normal pets (squirrel). I have tried to keep the stories chronological, but many of the animals' stories overlapped with some of the other critters they shared their home with. Each one had its own personality, its own quirks, and its own endearments on my heart. Life has been richer because of the experiences I was able to share with these amazing animals.
