Fear and Waiting

This is a quick post. As if my life isn’t already so full of joy, I woke up this morning to find my little girl cat “Beast” sick. She has never been sick, ever! Now one might say, well it’s just a cat. And they would be correct except for one caveat, she’s just my cat.

She’s over 17 now and been with me through thick and thin. She’s been through two 7.0+ earthquakes, fires, floods, tropical storms, Rodney King and OJ. I don’t know if I am ready for her to leave me and the rest of the family.

She's at the vet as I write this...
I am on such a roller coaster ride right now…

I know how you feel... We had to make the decision to have our cats put down when we moved. We didn't think that they were strong enough to survive the move - both of them were 17 year old toms, and there was no way that I wanted to put them through that kind of trauma at their age after having been in the same place for 15 years. I miss them immensely... Hugs to you and the family, and I hope she's ok!

I know the feeling, only I'm the cat. Leukemia, does that to me as well... My fondest best wishes that the family stays together.


I am Roz , a rose that's ephemeral and rare. Yet always here! Hugz!

This was a fucking brutal time. I actually said my goodbye to Beast the night before. Chokes me up still.
