Finding Focus

Last week was pure hell. Anyone who has ever lost a beloved furbaby you have my sincerest condolences. I lost my little girl last Tuesday and I miss her terribly. She was over 18, had end stage kidney disease, and a couple new health items that cropped up. We did all we could to save her, but it was too late. She awaits us over Rainbow Bridge now. 

Luckily, I have a tuxedo kitty too and he is not quite 14 yet. Diabetic, but in good health otherwise. He's been my love and light. He loves to cuddle and purr as soon as I touch him. Cats are definitely one of the three greatest loves of my world.

 

After such a loss, I took a few days to recoup and regroup and cope with how quiet the house is, and it feels emptier without my six-lb calico always vying for attention. I luckily, found solace in writing again. Anyone who's a regular sees that I've been posting a LOT more and trying really to get involved. I have no day job, and hubby works a lot, so it's just me and tux baby all day. My love for words, men in love (or falling) and trying to be social are winning out over the choice to be a hermit or grieve forever. I have dealt with the fact girl kitty is gone, but I still kiss her urn and picture every morning and night. She's never really gone...just waiting.

I’m sorry for the loss. Pets are family and give unconditional love.

Your kitty gave you the gift of love and companionship. Now she gives you inspiration. Writing has always brought me healing and peace. Best therapy there is.

:hug: It's so hard to lose our furkids.  I'm sorry for your loss.  Grieving takes time and writing definitely helps.  I miss all of my kitties I've lost.  Oh, and I have a tuxedo kitty too :)

This is the first one I've ever lost. My first cat my parents kept and were there when she passed. Writing has been a huge help and although the story is full of angst and drama, it takes the focus off of crying over her.  Awww, tuxes are fabulous! I want another one for sure after this one passes. They are so adorable!

Thank you...I'm sorry for yours!  The pain is easing, but I still have my baby boy. Once he goes...it'll be very odd without kitties.

I too am sorry for your loss.  Remember the good and fun times with her. You will smile and cry over both from time to time.  We lost out 20 pound boy tux 7 years ago. We still have pictures of him on the refrigerator. I smile at him every morning.  We now have the two in my avatar, Samson and Delilah. They are great, but very different furkids.  Keep your heart open to the furkids that need a loving home and your life and home will be much warmer :hug: .
