My relationship has been held together 85% for our pets. He had one dog and our cat and I have our other dog. They get severely depressed when they’re not seeing the other one. We can’t do that to them so we keep working on it. pic.twitter.com/efcSVgSTiN

We can clearly understand how the pet must be feeling for not seeing her favourite person for quite a while now. It can be devastating for them. With time, we hope that the cat overcomes with the decision and get backs to her joy self with her owner Abby.
