neither do i (“plan,” at least) but this thread isn’t particularly morbid. death happens— it/s normal.
we live in a time when death is hidden from everyone, or turned into stupid cartoons, and when it really comes we can’t handle it— that’s what’s so warped. the whole culture is in denial.
death is a part of life like everything else, and while it’s not a happy thing we have to learn to live with it— otherwise we turn into a bunch of stupid enlarged babies. i’m grateful that my cat taught me a thing or two about death— he was the best.
but yeah really not planning on any new pets— for me it’s not the fear of death but the commitment. i gotta be mobile right now.
