Then they adopted him from their neighbor.  When
Pete was 18 years old, and the only pet in the
house for 10 years, he warmly accepted a new feral
cat, Luke, as his brother.   Luke was one of several
stray cats that Niki fed and looked after on a regular
basis.  Then the Shanahans moved to another
neighborhood where they have seen very few
outdoor cats.  However, Joey showed up looking
scruffy and in need of a home a little before Pete
passed away. They took him in just after Pete went
home to heaven.

This website was established in 2003 and is
dedicated to animals and pets.  It includes a focus
on animal afterlife from a Christian perspective.

You’ll find that it revolves around:

1.  Pets and Animals
2.  People Who Love Animals
3.  Biblical Appreciation

It is a support for pet owners and animal lovers in
everyday life, as well as during the time when we
have to let go of our beloved companions until we
are united again in Heaven.  Although there is
tremendous grief and pain at the loss of our
beloved animal companions, we also remember that
God has provided the gift of eternal life for all the
animals.  All of God’s children can look forward to
being reunited with their animal companions again
someday.  When that wonderful day arrives, we
know that it will never, never end!  The Bible says
that when we are absent from the body, we are
present with the Lord. (II Corinthians, Ch. 5)  
Although we feel the pain when a loved one
departs, it is far from the end.  In fact, it is the
beginning of a beautiful life of eternity with God the
way He originally planned it.  Jesus said, “in My
Father’s House are many mansions, if it were not so
I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for
you and will come back again, that where I am you
may be there also.” (Paraphrase John 14:1-4)

Niki Behrikis Shanahan adopted her first pet, Pete,
the cat that was the inspiration for the book “There
Is Eternal Life For Animals.”  Pete was 8 years old
when the Shanahans adopted him from a neighbor
and 21 years old when he passed away.  Pete really
chose them, as many animals do, by meowing
outside the door of their condominium to let him
in.  They did let him in, and it was one of the best
things they ever did!  They would invite him in and
he would visit regularly until the bond was great
between them.
