  Many people form strong, lasting bonds with their pets. When

  death of a person who was close to them.  Grief is not
  restricted by the species of the loved one.

  Too, there are issues to deal with that are unique to pet
  owners, such as whether to put a pet "to sleep," introducing
  pets to children and mates, owning animals with behavi{*filter*}
  problems, what to do about mistreated animals, problems with
  veterinarians, breeders or pet stores, etc.

  Rec.pets.support would provide a forum for people who need
  advice on how to provide the best possible life for their
  animals. It is not limited to one species of animal; eg, since
  similar emotions are felt by all pet owners when their pets
  die, people with be able to empathize with each other
  regardless of their pet's species.

     Introducing pets to children and/or mates
