I had an altogether different post planned but I'm too sad. I switched on the computer and TV this evening, settled down to watch Deal or No Deal and check my emails, hoping there would be one from Pinky attaching photos from the Algarve so I could show you where he is and what he's up to. There wasn't one, so I went on to visit blogs. The first one I clicked on was PB&J, only to discover that three kitties had been called to the Bridge on Wednesday! Well, as I read their post my eyes started leaking and as I went to visit the families they leaked more and more... Well, you all know how this is! I'm sure most of you have heard the news, but I'd just like to express my condolences to the families of Skeeter, Cloud Chaser and Kelly. I know how they are hurting. The hurt never really goes away but with time the happy memories come more often than the sad ones and let's face it, would we really want to live without any furbabies in case we suffer heartache when they have to leave us? I don't think so. They enrich our lives and bring us so much joy.
It took me a long time to realise that without the heartbreak, we would not have been able to fully recognise the joy they gave us (and hopefully vice versa).
Oh! I've just received an email telling me that John and Pat of The Good Cats have signed my guestbook. Thank you! I feel really blessed that you would do this at such a time!
My life has been changed by the Cat Blogosphere. There may be heartache, but that just proves how much love there is in this Community. I am honoured (and so is Bozo!) to have been accepted. Thank you!
