It's in my will that Max goes to my best friend if something should happen to both me and my husband. Can you set up a trust so there would be money to take care of the girls?
No not really. No money. I do not have anyone. My best friend is 90 so she cannot help.

Think outside the box on this one. I have a friend who is about 20 years younger than me. I first met her when she was a young teenager, she has now grown into a fabulous, responsible woman.

Should G-d forbid anything happen to me, she gets Tux (my horse) and Remy (my golden). She's never even met Remy, but I have no reluctance with her having him.

Raggedy will go to a dear friend who's buidling does not allow pets of any kind (not even goldfish, it's on the sign!) - but we sneak Raggedy in there whenever I travel and she is happy and comfortable there.

100% of the proceeds of my estate, after paying for my burial and bills, will be put in a trust for the benefit of my animals for as long as they live. The friends who have the actual babies will be able to write checks up to $10K, anything over that will require 2 signatures (between three executors).

No one in my family would take care of my pets in any manner that I find acceptable. The truth is no one anywhere near me would - my friend who would get Tux and Remy lives in Texas - but I know they will be cared for and loved for the remainder of their lives.

I completely understand your stress over this issue. My family does not understand it either - in fact they thing I'm insane. Therefore they have nothing to worry about - I've taken care of it, and made my wishes VERY clear.

Good luck to you, I know you'll figure it out. (BTW I am by no means of an age where I'm expected to drop anytime now - I am 47, but I believe in being prepared)

Well I am almost 60. Health not so good and not so bad. I just pray that I can be here with my girls and they do not have to live without mom. Yes I am planning for them. .

You have good friends on this board - maybe you could make a provision that your babies would go to one of them?

Another member brought this thread to my attention, and I cannot tell you how much this touched my heart. At such a sad time for me, I was happy my love for Tesia moved you to feel this way. Thank you.
