So I am sorry for your loss, Rob, but after making a pretty serious misconception of what "4 footed" could mean, I'm really really glad it was just a CAT.
I'm glad I wasn't the only one to jump to the worst possible conclusion.

Oh, I know. It's a context thing. They're not just animals in the context of the loss we feel, the value they had in our lives, even in their contribution. A lot of times they can have been more important than some of the ancillary humans we've known over the years.

But when you're reading a forum post and come to the idea that four-footed is referencing the height of a child, and then learn otherwise, in that moment, to you, it's "just an animal" by comparison.

I didn't realize that's what you were thinking. I was a bit confused as to how else it could have been interpreted.
