Guinevere is in Kitty Heaven now.


Tuesday, February 18, 2014



Sitting here crying as I type this. My heart is aching so much. Guinie is with her brother Lancelot now in kitty heaven. When I took her to the vet yesterday and had her blood work done it was worse so the vet and I decided it was time. I was with her and petted her and she just went to sleep. Very peaceful. I know I just have to go through the grieving process so that I can breath again. It's just part of life. It's very strange to not have a kitty in the house. I have had kitties all my life. So this will be a new lifestyle. My DH says he doesn't want to get attached to anymore kitties. He is really hurting over this too as she was "his kitty babygirl". We also want to be free to travel up to see the grandkids more often and for longer periods of time while they are children and not teens and want to be around you. So life will be different. But life does go on doesn't it. I will get through this and be fine but right now need to just cry.

On another note, we are meeting with a realtor today at the house we own where FIL lived. We don't see him ever being independent again so we are thinking of selling it. It's a lovely house is a wonderful community with pool and all the amenities. We just don't need anything more to care for.

Thank you again for all your hugs, comments and prayers. Sparks is just so wonderful. I can be so honest here and bear my sole and share my raw feelings. It is so helpful to get it out.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Sallie

    Let it run it's course however it does...

Losses are tragic no matter who or what; we just don't realize it until it happens.

So sorry...

    Sallie, I'm so sorry. I do feel for you. But what a blessing for you and for her that you were with her!
Let yourself grieve. My Savi has been living on borrowed time for years. I think he has AIDS. I pray that he will die peacefully without human intervention as he's neurotic about strangers.
I think of my animals as being on loan to me from God, and pray that it will be a long loan. Often it isn't. But they are all a blessing to me and they all enjoy life to the full. As Guinie obviously did.

    I'm so sorry!! I just saw this. emoticon It's so hard when a pet crosses over. I'm still not "over" my heart dog and horse. I have a Siamese and they are such special cats. Hang in there, my friend. Give yourself time and know that many of us are here for you. emoticon

    Sallie, I am so sorry to hear about Guinevere. We lost two kitties a couple of years ago so I understand and there are just no words that can fully express my condolences. My heart goes out to you and your husband and I will be thinking of you.

    Your kittens were lucky to spend their time on earth with you and your husband, just as the two of you were were lucky to have their companionship. Right now you are sad, but eventually, remembering them will make you smile.

So sorry your last furbaby has ascended to the Heaviside layer. May she come back in a new beautiful life. DH and I talked the other night and agree we are on our last kitty, too, and he is not doing that well.

    emoticon We lost our furbaby Cilantro on February 4. She was Bill's baby girl and he does not want any more cats right now. Our youngest cat, Juneau, misses Cilantro as much as we do. It hurts so much! I am crying right there with you.

The pain will lesson, but the loss will always be there. Those pawprints in our hearts are there to stay.

    I am sorry to hear your dear Guinie has passed. Have been there, do understand how it feels. The positive in all this? You and your hubby will carry your furry 'kittybaby' with you in wonderful memories that in time will bring a smile to as some current circumstance carries you back to a funny or comforting moment.

And at the same time, you've both accepted a hard reality: that your FIL can no longer be independent. Huge transition. A great deal of change going on down there. Do something nice for yourself, k?

    So very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine life without a fur baby. After we released Bendix the house seemed so empty and lifeless and I was not surprised when Mom rescued both a kittie and a dog..

    Awwwww, major emoticon and emoticon . Just know that since Guinie crossed the emoticon Bridge, she's with Lance and is not in pain. My heart aches for you too, dear. It's so difficult to make that decision and they are our kids for sure!

good luck with the sale of the house. Sounds like a practical idea for sure.

HUGS my dear.
