Gravity

Having a tough time pulling myself out of the muck. February usually tends to be a crap month for me anyway. But today the sun is shining and it's in the 30s, so by God I should be a little perked up by that. Still there's that nagging undercurrent of sadness, negativity and all that fun stuff pulling at me. Sometimes it's like I'm treading water - just barely staying afloat but not really getting anywhere. But anyway.

Our beloved cat passed away this weekend. She hadn't been doing too well for quite some time, and she was an estimated 14 years old (we've owned her for about 5 of those years) so of course we knew this was coming, but it still hurts so much to say goodbye to a pet. You know how it is. She brought us a lot of happiness though, more than I can properly explain here, and the memories will not be forgotten. When we first got her, her former owners had said she "just doesn't purr" and it didn't take long for us to prove them wrong. Aww. Such a wonderful cat. Our cat. She will be missed, to say the least.

Ah hell. You just sorta wish they'd live forever. We've talked cats before, so you know I know how you feel.

I'm sorry about your cat. Why can't the best pets live 60 years like their owners?

OMG, very sorry to hear about your cat's passing. Even if it is expected, it's still painful. Hang in there.

I'm sorry...It's so freakin' hard to lose a pet. I cried for hours over a fish, so I can only imagine how you feel.
