Do you get overly attached to your animals?

My dad has been into hunting for as long as I can remember. Heís always tried to get my brother and me to follow in his footsteps, and while my brother will probably end up becoming a mirror copy of the old man, I was never one to enjoy killing. Call me a softie, but the only time killing an innocent creature makes sense to me is if youíre starving and thereís no other way to survive.

Anyway, Iíve kind of gone the opposite of what my dad wanted me to be. I was lucky enough to meet the woman of my dreams who felt the same way about animals and wildlife. Last year, I got extremely lucky while on a business trip to England and won a jackpot in an online casino ( Iím not a gambler and I donít support it, but it was a work thing and attendance was mandatory, so I spun the reels to be polite. Little did I know the damn thing would change my life.

When I told my wife the news, she was ecstatic and immediately suggested we start an animal sanctuary just outside of our hometown of Portland, OR. Things have been going great ever since and we foster many different animals here.

However, lately I find myself feeling particularly sad and depressed when they pass away or go back to the wild. Iíve always been compassionate, but this feels different. The missus keeps brushing it off as me having ďa big heart,Ē but Iím worried it may be something more. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
