   In the start of the first book Elena's parents have been dead for 3 years. At the start of season one Elena parents have dead for 3 months.
   Margret who is Elena little sister(in the books only) Didn't know much about her parents since they were killed when she was a baby, so their death didn't affect her much. Plus the parents really didn't get to really know their 2nd child, that much. Jeremy who is Elena younger brother(in the show only) Knew much about his parent since they were killed when he was around 14,according to the flashback during season 3 finale. Plus their death did affect him a lot, to cause him to use drugs, early in season 1. Plus they parents did get to know their 2nd child for 14 years before they were killed.
   Elena sister adopts a cat into the house and name it snowball, which is really Katherine pretending to be a cat, in disguise. This don't happen in the show, since Elena, have a brother, instead of little sister. Plus since season 1 the Gilbert house has been pet free.
