Counting my adolescence, I have outlived significantly more than one. Also lost one to my ex when we split up....and she turned around and shipped her (the cat) to her parents only months later. It was a lot of years ago and I'm still upset by that. Makes me really glad we didn't have children; how can anyone be so spiteful to demand custody purely for the sake of 'winning'?This thread will be interesting. Thanks to generally older demographic here I guess majority of the people are old enough to have outlived at least one pet.
