Do cats and dogs need us as much as we need them?
When I was a child I had two cats both of which were killed on the road. When I lost my first cat I was heartbroken so my parents, in an attempt to soften the loss, bought me a kitten which I named Lucky. Unfortunately, he was not so lucky as he found his way down to the main road where he also met his maker.
I still remember the bond I had with them so when I snapped this photograph of my baby grandson with their family cat it rekindled childhood memories.
We never got another cat and my bond with ‘furry friends’ was broken.
