I sent a request for prayers for Chester, a dog who went to the bridge yesterday.  Thanks to all who kept him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.  One thing I forgot to mention, the woman who brought him into the vet said that they came home and found him with a plastic bag stuck on his head.  I know in the past, I have been pretty careless about leaving bags around.  This has changed my perspective and I will now make sure my pets can't get anywhere near a plastic bag.  I hope lots of people read this post and do the same. 

Thanks!

Thank you for the warning.  I dog-proof my home and yard as best I can.  This sounds like a freak accident, or maybe there was the scent of food in the bag.  Such a tragic story.

Hugs,
Melissa

I lost my youngest cat, Tash, in a freak accident 4 weeks ago, and I'm hoping that by sharing my experience, I will spare another pet and owner the same experience. Tash liked to sleep in my closet. He was always climbing up onto the shelves to sleep, and climbing and/or jumping down later. My closet has a stack of shelves in the middle, with a bar at the top for hanging stuff, as well as a lower bar on the right side for shirts, etc.  I'm not exactly sure what happened, but my guess is that Tash was climbing down from the shelf, and he got his neck caught in a coathanger and choked himself.  I don't want any pet owner to have to find their pet the way I found Tash. Coathangers are not usually something you think about when pet-proofing your home. Never in a million years would I have thought that something like this could happen.  Please keep coathangers away from pets reach.

I'm so sorry Lisa.  I hope you don't blame yourself for that awful accident.  I would never think something like that would happen either.

Thankyou.
Even though I keep telling myself it wasn't my fault and there's no way I could have seen this coming, I still feel bad that I wasn't able to protect Tash or help him out.

Dear Lisa,

Sending hugs,

Dear Daisymom and Lisa, thank you for sharing that info. I never thought about coathangers and my kitties love to go in closets. I am so sorry to you both on your losses. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom
