Sad things seem to always happen when you least expect them.

Sunday. Sunday we had fun watching tractors with the boys. Sunday was our wedding anniversary.

Sunday night our cat died.

He looked terrible when he came home that night, and despite trips to the vet and clinic late at night, he didn't make it.

So yes, we're sad. Very.

And the only thing that helps a bit is knowing that we've always truly loved and appreciated that cat. Despite busy days, there was always time to cuddle with him. He'd get up early in the morning with me and purr while I brushed my teeth. He'd sit in the driveway with us while the kids rode their bikes around the street. He was always with us.

And he will always be with us. How could you forget a cat who purred so loud he'd sound a bit like a dove. Who loved ham and shrimps, but only the best quality. Who could open doors. Who wouldn't meow but make some strange sound instead. Who had this look in his eyes like he was a very wise old soul.

I know this might sound corny, but we do hope that soul will live on. Somewhere.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. This really pulls at my heartstrings.

    A few years ago We temporarily moved in with my dad when my husband got out of the military and was going to the police academy and while we were there we lost our dog. It was devastating. I mean, I still cry about it and it happened nearly 4 years ago. And then we moved out and one day we noticed our cat was acting strangely and took him to the vet and they kept him overnight. They said he must have gotten into something that poisoned him. I got a call the next morning and they said said we needed to come up there because he wasn't going to make it, and he was gone before we arrived.

    These are the things you never think you would be so upset about. You never think that these creatures would have such a huge role in your family, and also leave such an empty place in your heart. I am so sorry. This is one of those things that will never get easier, but I appreciate the sentiment that y'all never took him for granted, and I know he must've known how loved he was.

    Thinking of your family,

I don't know about you, but I love reading comments. That's a hint for you to leave one, btw. Not that I'm begging here. But I do love hearing from you...
