i must first apologize for being MIA for 19 days. it has been a whirlwind. Lots of things going on.
First, i would describe those 19 days as hard and sad. You see, my lovely kitty, Shelby, passed away a week ago following a brave fight with cancer. She took her last breath in my arms. I had been doing all i could to make her comfortable I got her favorite foods, her princess blanket, and held her close, the way shee liked, trying to ease her transition.
I know there are those who would say she was just a cat. However the truth is she was part of my life for over 12 years. We had an easy daily pattern we followed. She is who I talked to a lot. She would appear to listen. She also had an intuitive nature. When i was hurting, she would come lay in my lap. If i were in bed, she would curl up by my head, or massage my back then lay on it. She let me discuss all the issues i had. She was not a talker but she could tell you what she wanted without meows. I can honestly say she was the best cat i have ever had, and i have had many in my life.
So, i was caught up in this care for my kitty for about two weeks. Add the week since she passed and you can see i was busy. Sorry about that. I have a few diary entries I will be adding too. All passive aggressive bullying from my husband. Not been good for me around here either. I will save that for tomorrow.
Hope you are pain free and enjoying life.
