This is a challenging time for my family and me, regardless of how others feel.”
The young star continued, “Animals are treated like members of our family in our household and many other empathetic households like mine. I’m sorry to see that this is how some people were raised. Love and kindness always. There’s an option to scroll past and ignore a post if you disagree with it.” She later posted another Instagram Story, sharing a picture of herself and Tuco, with the caption, “My baby boy forever.”
Merub’s heartfelt message underscores the deep connection many people have with their pets and emphasizes the importance of empathy and compassion during times of loss.
