I'll start - here are my two wonderful fuzzy babies, Flint and Tinder.  Flint is the sweet chubby black girl, and Tinder is the mischievous little tabby boy:

My Halloween kitty, Binx. My fiancé and I got him 6 weeks before said fiancé (also in the picture) died a month ago. This ornery little kitty has been my rock, honestly.

My little guy Watson is only two. I was never really a cat person but my husband loved them. He's a bit odd (the cat). He loves to play in the tub and likes to bring me pens. I remember being angry at first after DH died. 'You left me with this stupid cat that doesn't even like to cuddle'. But now I've learned to appreciate my weird furball. He keeps me busy and is always entertaining. He doesn't know it but he helped me get through some of the worst moments of my life.

I have two Italian greyhounds that have been my saviours!  I got them after his passing.  He never liked little dogs and they are my first venture here and I LOVE them!

I will try picture....

Any thoughts on how long animals remember  their owners  after they die? 

 after a year, I wonder if they remember him, and  if they wonder why he just stopped coming home

My screen name is Hachi, after the dog in Japan who waited at the train station for his owner for the rest of his life. My dog Nico still looks for my DH in the woods up north and gets confused when his brother come by. I think they must have similar scent. He only does it if he hasn't been around for a while. If I see him more often, he knows its not him. 

 

I personally don't think they forget.

DH loved baseball and in his final year watched a lot on TV with our dog by his side. Even 9 years later, when I turn on a game and she hears the announcers, my dog looks around for DH.

Cae, I  often wonder the same thing. My 2 dogs mourned for 2 weeks. One wouldn't eat. And the other one ate but just laid around all the time, not like his normal boisterous impish self. At 2.5 years I wonder if they wonder why he never came home. I took them to the cemetery last week and kept telling them this is where Daddy is. They did not understand.  I  just wonder what they think. I  had always said if I died I wanted them yo see my dead body so they wouldn't think I abandoned them. But he died at the hospital so it was not available .
