    I rescued chloe just over four months ago she was a battery hen. she died this afternoon of peritonitis. i want to post this here because everyone thinks im mad to love a chicken so much and noone understands... but i hope you all do.

    Chloe
    Don’t go or you will forget me, or worse I will forget you.
    When I can’t remember your face and your features blend in with everyone else’s
    I think I will go insane not to see you again and all searching I do will be in vain
    Because no one will be you
    I listened to every word you ever said to me, trying to understand
    I glowed when I saw you happy, oh man
    I am going to miss you, don’t go
    You left me so early on, I could have made you happy
    Don’t forget me, don’t forget your only summer
    Don’t forget the grass on your feet and the tickle of the wind on your skin
    Because I won’t forget your softness against my lips as I kissed you goodbye
    My tears staining you forever into the afterlife, fell heavily on your delicate body
    I don’t want to forget you, or forget how my heart raced when I saw your face
    Or that I never walked alone because you kept pace.
    I promise to you that I will not forget you, and that your dignity in life humbles me
    That on my knees I do swear to help as many like you
    To shelter to love and to protect, because you opened my heart to a new world
    I am a better person. My heart is always beating with love for you, I will see you in every patch of sun. Please don’t forget me. I will never forget you

    I'm sorry Chloe is gone. She was such a pretty girl. I'm glad that the last days of her life were with someone who loved her so. [​IMG]

    I'm very happy she had that summer.
    I'm positive she is too.

    Thank you. Dreading tomorrow when she's not here. Is it crazy to love a chicken so much?

    You were both very lucky to have had the time together.
