Animals helped me get through it

By Olivia, age 12

Around May of 2019, my family and I moved to a new neighborhood. I thought it wasn’t going to be good because my best friend wouldn’t be there, but I was wrong. Everyone that I met there was very nice and I soon became very good friends with them all! It was all fun until my cat Tuck got diagnosed with a type of disease, and he died on November 19th of 2020. Around Christmas, though, we got 2 new cats, named Comet and Rio! And they are very nice! In the summer of 2021, I enrolled in competitive horseback riding! I was very hopeful and excited. When the season ended I had gotten two 6th places and one 3rd place. Then, in 2022, one of my dogs also passed away, he had gotten very sick. We still have one dog and two cats though!
