Saturday, January 05, 2013

Sort of a mixed up day I was still tired and am trying to psyche myself up for the return to work on Monday. I was going to post a video of Sam and Charlie (Charlie just LOVED Sam) but I haven't downloaded from my camera yet.

its better

Friday, January 04, 2013

I still feel sad but I think it was kinder to have him go when he still had some quality of life and I still found my self trying to call him and I almost fed him along with Charlie (they both shared a can of cat food twice a day) and had to remember only to put ONE dish down. I am tired as I did not sleep good last might (woke up at 4 this morning), Thanks for all your kind thoughts and messages.

    What I do when I lose a pet is to shower my other pets with attention. No one will ever replace him but you have other pets to take care of and I'm sure they are sad too and miss him.

Update

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I think I am dehydrated from all the sobbing. He went in at 2:50 pm (I am writing this a 4:13). I couldn't go but I should have - he had one bad (fused) hip and the other one had an infection in it. I feel awful I wasn't there for him I will sure miss him. I hope he is in a better place. I have to stop. Sorry.

    Thanks - its true one cat can never replace another- I had a real dislike of Sam as he shed a LOT and I was dead set against getting any long haired cats. But when Malcolm died (MY cat) I realised we BOTH had lost our best friend.

    Your blog really touched me. We have 3 cats.

My cat passed 12/1/11 . His name was Sam and I had him for 14 years. I was inconsolable for several days. It was especially hard to watch the other 2 cats look for him.

We completed our family once again this past April with Oliver. When we first picked him up from the shelter, he was nothing like Sam. In the past few months, I've found Oliver doing some of the same things Sam did. Don't get me wrong, no other cat will ever replace Sam. However, I find comfort in it.

Cat Bed (as promised)

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Well today is interesting. It started out with a malady best described as "intestinal distress" (whether this is my punishment for being stupid enough to think I could eat habanero peppers on New Years Eve) I am not sure. All I know is that I am trying to deal with in and still fit in running around and exercising etc. Oh and bringing up the beast's bed. Here it is in its unvarnished (literally) ugliness (at least they seem to like it).

    Nice - it looks like your cats are enjoying being in the bed :) emoticon

    No I just set it up and they went over and started using it. I was sure relieved as I built it without plans and hardly any measurements (just winged it) - I was afraid that they were going to run into the top rail and give themselves a concussion.

    But, but , but, they're just cats! They sleep where they please. In fact they do everything as they please. Ours has a perfectly good cat bed and curls up around our cable modem ... because it's warm?

    Great kitty beds! My 6 year old granddaughter would LOVE to paint that for you. It would be "rainbow" I'm sure...with lots of pinks and purples and glitter. haha. No matter what our pets are, they are MADE to spoil, so keep up the good work!

    Hubby's comment was it's very well made (not that my comment would be of use as I have no idea about these things).

but the cats love it that makes it 10/10.

Great work.

Sorry about the peppers too.
