I can't say I'm doing well. I have accepted their loss but can't quite deal with how they just aren't here anymore.
Sometimes I lay in bed before sleep and remember how it was. What they would do, how it would sound.
I told my sister I was having an especially hard week, so last night we went to dinner and shopped. That was fun.
And now for something cute. I found this on Facebook; I'm sorry I don't know who to give credit to, but wow you're talented.
I 100% understand...after all the years they are with us...24/7 it is impossible to separate from their memories. I hope and purr in timeReplyDelete
your mind will be flooded with the good times you had and the conditional love you shared.
Monday 3/11 would have been Angel Madi's 17th bday. The comfort I have found in her loss by remembering her eyes. I miss her purrs and little gentle puffs of air she made when she was in a deep sleep. She was not a lap cat but she always looked at us with such devotion and trust.
I do know how you feel. It is almost 6 years since Eric left us and 2 years in May for Flynn and we still miss both of them terribly as if it was yesterday. I lie in bed thinking of all those wonderful years and all the times I walked around the fields with them.ReplyDelete
We never forget them and because we loved them so much means it also hurts so much. (((hugs)))
For better or worse, we adopted Manny and CB about 6 weeks after Chucky passed. We didn't plan it, but having them around healed some of the pain in our hearts. Almost every day, we marvel together at how much love they brought into the house, after some many years of Chuck going downhill. They didn't replace Chuck; their purrsonalities just enriched our lives. And I just want MORE cats; taking care of five isn't enough.ReplyDelete
I could not imagine being without any cats. I'm sorry you're having a hard time and hope you can eventually heal and find peace again. Sending hugs.ReplyDelete
Purrs and hugs to you ❤️ReplyDelete
it takes time; good days//bad days//ok days....and I state, as would everyone else; it's alright to have the bad...yet, sadly, you have to go thru the bad, to get past them. toby and leia went so close together that you didn't have time to grieve leia's loss and then toby joined her in heaven.... that's a LOT to deal with ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ReplyDelete
I really understand. It is so hard.ReplyDelete
I've been meaning to check in. I hope you know you can contact me any time. Back when it was just Bear and I - he was my whole life. Literally. Every bit of life I had was intertwined with his. I miss that now that we've added to the family. And sometimes I feel guilty for adding anything - but goodness knows that life with Bear was incredible.ReplyDelete
I understand totally. Losing Wally has hit me hard even though I still have Ernie and Zoey here. I keep expecting to see him when I walk into a room, hear his meow. They say it will get easier...but I don’t know. Sending you a big hug. ~Island Cat MomReplyDelete
We're sad that you're sad. We wish we could help.ReplyDelete
I can't even imagine how lonely it is without them. XOReplyDelete
Purrs to you. We miss Toby and Leia too. <3ReplyDelete
I understand your sadness. I wish there was something uplifting I could say. I send virtual hugs.ReplyDelete
p.s. I very much like the cute graphic!
We're so sorry, and send you love and good thoughts. We miss our Moosey, Zoe and Sammy even years later. Some days are better than others.ReplyDelete
What sweet photos of Toby and Leia. I’m sorry you are having hard time. I lost my girls more than a decade ago and still miss them. Glad you and your sister had a nice time together. Sending warm hugs your way xoReplyDelete
