good girl


Lucy 11/1(ish)/2005-2/2/2013


Lucy was a good girl. We thought we would have a lot more time with her, but her immune system attacked her suddenly, and we said goodbye today. It is very surreal.

We lost our old kitty Babette not so very long ago, and suddenly, too.

Toots has asked already if we are getting another dog. Honey said to me separately, please can we wait a little while this time to mourn her. We adopted Sasha 10 days after we lost Babette suddenly a few months ago.

Mr. Cynic is presenting stoically, Captain Comic seems okay, and keeps coming over to hug me and make me feel better.

I’m just teary and a bit in shock.

  1. I’m so sorry, Cathy. It’s always so hard to lose a faithful furry member of the family. Sending you all hugs and prayers.

  2. I am sorry to hear that Cathy. We were worried about The Meow this weekend. Fortunately he is doing better after surgery. Positive energy for you and your family.

  3. So sorry for the loss. I think Honey is wise to allow time for grief — even if it is painful, it is necessary. I have learned the hard way that one must leave space for grieving. And when grief lessens, we have more space for the new, wonderful things that arrive.

  4. he is, thanks, i just miss dogness in the house. so do the kids…mr. cynic is mindful of grieving process, too.

    • and if i didn’t have the new kitty, we got fast after losing babette right now, i would be in a lot worse shape. so he has helped with his furry cuddlies.
