Everyday Bliss in Times of Loss

Today I said good-bye to my feline companion of nearly 17 years. I am sad but peaceful as I know she is in a better place now. I merely released her spirit from an ailing body for I know she has not departed that far. She was the universe expresing itself in physical form. Because I too am made of that same "stuff" I know she is with me always.

I am thankful for the support of family and friends who understand the connection I have always had and will always have to cats. I will look forward to the renewal of life in the joy of bringing home new kittens. For now, I will just "be" intensely present with this moment for awhile and let myself decompress.

I am so sorry. I know the loss you are feeling. Your sweet baby will wait for you at Rainbow Bridge until the day that you are reunited.

Sending you a BIG HUG

Oh Kitty......I am so sorry. It breaks my heart to hear this. I love creatures and to lose them is to lose a bit of heaven on earth. You will always have fond memories of so many years of comfort that every nudge and caress she shared gave to you. Do whatever makes you smile today dearest one. Anita

I send you gentle hugs as you take this time to feel the loss of your furbaby! My heart and love goes out to you as I truly understand the pain of this loss.
I firmly believe we will see our loved ones again; whether they be in a fur coat or a skin one. And we will all be whole and joyful at the reunion!!
Hugging you

Oh Kitty,
I'm so sorry your baby has passed on! Yes, she will forever be with you and then you will see her again someday! But for now, it is such a sad and mournful loss. I admire you for being able to gain comfort from the cycle of life. *Sending you big hugs*
