Saying Good-Bye to Kitty


For the first time in my adult life, I put one of my beloved companions of 16 years to his final rest this past Wednesday. I thought I would be able to handle putting up a Pink Saturday post this week in spite of it all but I am just not up to it. I apologize to Beverly who works so hard in putting this together for us but I know she understands and I hope you will too. I will have some thoughts to share about what I have learned about this experience but I will save it for a later time. For now, I'll share a photo of my surviving kitty. Obviously she is not pink but she is keeping me in the pink during this difficult time.

Please enjoy your day and do be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for some chipper Pink Saturday posts.

xoxo

I am so sorry to hear you lost your beloved kitty. It's very hard to say goodbye to a loving pet. I am sorry.......I want to wish you a Happy Pink Saturday anyway, altho I am sure you don't much feel like one. Take one day at a time, one step at a time, try and remember all the good things bought into your life. Char

my heart breaks for you..just had to do this with my beloved Otis...have done it with 4 other beloveds It is not an easy thing to do,but it takes so much love. Let yourself mourn and cry and also keep the happy memories closeby for comfort. Knowing that you have friends who care brought great comfort to me..and I hope it brings comfort to you. Ann
