Don't get me wrong, I love my cat....

Seriously, I do love the evil siamese; however, she is a cat, not a person (though sometimes I wonder). Honestly, I do indeed know the difference and am a card-carrying, bonafide "crazy cat lady". I love her to pieces for being a love bug and a source of endless amusement. She is always happy to see me when I get home and we "discuss" our day. Do I call her my "child"? Yes; however she is a cat....

Why do I emphasize this? It is because an idiot at work (who has no human offspring) compared the death of her pet to the death of another co-worker's small child.... Yep, y'all heard me right... She actually said that she understood this other woman's pain because her cat died. I was completely dumbstruck. I did not know whether to slap this inconsiderate bitch or console the true mother who birthed a child who died way before her time. (Note: I chose the later.)

The idiot who made the comment had no clue how UTTERLY WRONG her commentary about her dead cat was/is... She continued on with her soliloquy about how her kitten did this and her kitten did that; therefore she "knows what it's like to loose a child"... Amazing display of insensitivity... The true mother was at a loss for words. Her loss was not recent but that does not discount the pain she lives, breathes and feels everyday for the loss of her angel.

Don't get me wrong, I love, love, LOVE the kitty... I know the difference tho....

"Holy moly, talk about inconsiderate."

Absolutely. Klinde has no compassion or understanding whatsoever.

The difference between pets and children is if you're starving to death, you'll eat your children. You can always have/buy more.
