i Want To Scream!!!!!


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.

    I feel your pain. It feels like they take a piece of your heart when they cross over. I hope you you can start thinking about Shelby without the ache in your heart as soon as is possible. Try to take comfort in the fact that you gave her a life full of joy, love and security. All of us who have lost our dear furry family members know exactly what you are going through. I firmly believe that when our time comes, our “fur kids” will be on the other side, welcoming us back.

    I always have to get another pet fairly soon after saying goodbye to one. They don’t replace the one I lost. They put a bandage on the hole in my heart.

    Take care, Jenlynn.
