Finally got the blogs back up. Finally updating.
I haven’t blogged at all this year. This year hasn’t been very kind to me. I haven’t really felt like blogging up until now.
For those of you who don’t know me that well, I am a cat mom. I love my cats more than anything. They are my fuzzy four legged kids. In June, one of my precious kitties passed away. He was only 11 years old.
“Brother Kitty” as I called him here online, was my oldest baby. He was my tan/white boy…I called him my golden boy. He was the sweetest cat I have ever met. He was so mellow and loving. All he ever wanted to do was sit on my lap and follow me around everywhere.
He began throwing up in the middle of May and I took him immediately to the veterinarian. He had a lot of tests run on him and we found out that he had large cell lymphoma and that he didn’t have much time left. Cancer takes animals over fast, even with treatments, it isn’t like treating cancer in humans. We did all we could to keep his quality of life good for as long as we could. On June 6, exactly four days after his 11th year adoption anniversary, my sweet golden boy had to be put to sleep. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Working with animals, as I have in the past, I knew the whole process and what would happen, it’s just a whole other different story when the animal is your baby. I felt like a huge hunk of my heart was ripped out and it’s never healed. I miss my sweet boy every single day. I don’t deal with loss well, I never have. This has taken a lot out of me. I feel like all I want to do is seclude myself with my other two cats and just lock everything and everyone else out. I guess that is why I felt like I needed to start blogging again, so I can try and break myself out of this shell I’ve built around myself.
My other two kitties, “Kitty” and “Sister Kitty” are doing as well as can be expected. They obviously miss their brother and are having to adjust with him not being here any more. I’ve been doing all that I can for them, but I know this isn’t easy on them either. It’s been very difficult for all of us. I really appreciate everyone who has reached out to me over the past few months. Knowing that you were all thinking of my cat and of my family really helps. I appreciate all of your friendship more than you know. I will eventually emerge again, I know that blogging will help.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
