    It would be nice to have a pet that would outlive you.

    You'd need to put them in a will though, or set up something that they'd be cared for.

    Not always. A tortoise, sure. They won’t develop a loyalty to you which a dog will. I think it’s for the better that people mostly outlive their dogs.
    Life asked Death, “Death, why do people love me but hate you?”

    Death responded, “Because you are a beautiful lie… and I am a painful truth”

    One of my favorite things in life is the tortoise enclosure at the zoo. Just sharing. Nature is full of wonderful things.

    I follow an Instagram account called thenotortoisebig, and the owner has done just that.

    I don't have an actual will, though, but I think my cats should be pretty well set should I die tomorrow.
