ideas on pets after retirement
we currently have a perfect life with our cat and dog (both adopted from shelters). all my life i have always had pets and don't actually know how to live without the affection of pets in my life, nor would i want to.
last year my husband and i retired. suddenly money became a huge issue. we know we need to live frugally and we do!
i fear the day either of my pets are no longer alive. it is difficult to pay for everything from vets, to food, to litter. my husband said probably we wont be able to have pets any longer. i am so sad at the thought that i come to you all for ideas.
what do you think since money is truly a priority!
it doesn't feel fair (but, life isn't fair, i guess) that animals need homes beyond a shelter (or worse), they need to live in warm homes with a loving forever family.. is there anything out there that you can think of for this horrendous situation to work out for the pets and people involved?
thanks for your advice in advance!
