I'm crying, I felt this game... a close story to me. A great example of why technique is not the most important thing, thanks bro! 🙌

As a game it's just clicking on a few things. As a heart puller for anyone who loves animals or even more has lost a cat it's amazingly deep. I loved this. Really really good... 

Sorry for breaking the mood, but what is the agreement at the start? I know it is a vet disclosure agreement, but what is it about?

This reminded me of when my dog died, so it hit extra close to home... also reminds me of the fact that my cat is old and may die sometimes soon. I literally weeped so hard with this game, I'm crying as I'm typing this

:sad:

omg i'm bawling!!!!!!!

I literally started crying from this

God dang it I really did almost sob at this one, actually it was building up and I nearly bawled. A death of a pet is so hard, cause they're not a pet, they're family no matter what anyone says. And losing them in any way is the hardest thing to go through and move on. Yet I'm glad for the ending I saw, even if it hurts we have to move on with our lives for the people we will meet in the future and the chances we can have. AAAA such a great little game!!

I really love this game, it's so cute T.T, I saw a playthrough for this on youtube but right after watching came here to play it myself. Can't wait to see what else the creator comes out with. :)))

Love it! For all those pets we have lost

short yet sweet

I lost my pet a week ago, i download the game, it's short but it make me cry because i feel the same way. 
Love the music, the game reach me and i hope you will continue to work hard for other games because is really well done ( love the pixel art and the concept of this short game). 

This is such a sad and lovely game. I got to try out my new model playing it, hope you enjoy.

I expected something that isn't sad but this is just sad how the boy lost his cat, me as a cat lover I can't when a cat loses their life, its just too much for me but I really love this short interactive game it talks the truth about a pet, pet is not just animals living and eating, they're also part of a family that shows you comfort and love

I cried...

This was a beautifully

made game and so sad.

The music, mechanics, and sfx in the beginning were negatively distracting, took away from the story, but the art and the music at the end got me so hard. I'm not bawling my eyes out, I just didn't need to see it's fine

I can relate to this game completely, as I lost my 4 yr old yorkie last month, and I'm trying to deal with the pain of losing her. I want to personally thank you for making this game.

Thanks, I appreciate it.  I was dealing with losing my greyhound to cancer at the time this was written.  (I have just received a notification that I had a message, so I hope the 236 days ago wasn't when you actually posted it.)

Wishing you the best.

My plan is to finish the game in the future and in the end the dog will met his family.. happy ending.

Hope you find your dog soon.
