Show your pets you love them while you still can..

My partner Pam has been very supportive. I told her this grief is something I've to go through and I love her. Ophie was a big part of me. Now our cat Beau who was diagnosed with renal failure is slowly deteriorating. He was doing fairly well and enjoyed life despite the loss of his eyesight months ago.  Now he's eating less and continues to lose weight. He's the sweetest cat I ever had. He's now 15. Seems like only yesterday... time flies.

Hi Anna

I'm so sorry about your loss too. My heart goes out to you and Sassy... I am spending a lot of quality time with Beau. Treating each day as if it's the last time we'll be together, giving him hugs and telling him how much I love I love him. He's been sick for awhile so I thank God that he's still with me but you know we are never prepared for the worse... It's okay to grieve... to cry..Someday... tears will turn into smiles when you think about the wonderful memories. Take care of yourself for your sake and Sassy's. I know your husband is smiling down at you knowing how much he's loved. Though you don't see him.. he's always  be at your side and someday you'll be together again..

Bokoy, I had to comment on this post.  First, it is never easy to say to someone who was a large part of our life like your friend Ophie was.  Secondly, my husband (who died in July this year) had a little dog that went everywhere with him.  If my husband was in the office, Sassy was in the office.  If my husband was walking 10 miles in the bush, Sassy was walking 12 miles in the bush on her little 6 inch legs!  A month before my husband died, I found a lump on his dog but was scared to tell him.  He had enough to deal with.  After he died I took his dog to the vet who diagnosed the lump as I suspected, cancer.  There is really nothing to be done, but let her live as long as she is comfortable and then she will go join her master which I know is what she wants anyway.  She will be 11 next month and the loss of Tom has been as hard or harder on her than on me.  She still sits at the door or at the gate if she is outside and waits for him to come home.  But the thought of letting her go is ripping another hole in my heart.  So hugs to you, and your sweet cat.  Love him like crazy while he is here!!!

An assumption is an unexamined belief: what is thought to be true without ever really realizing that we think in that way. For better or worse, understanding starts with entertaining the idea that something is true.  Truly profound thoughts generally come to light from the relaxation of these (flawed) assumptions.  This is where I find myself today...Perhaps, one of the more significant drivers to pushing down the loss and grief at the time of the accident, ignoring it and mindlessly walking…See More
