A Sad Saturday Morning....For Me

Why? I brought my beloved cat home. His ashes. Just now. On this Saturday. He was my Baby Cakes. And he was, and always will be, such a big part of my heart and soul. My life. I was his Dad. I'll always be his Dad. So I have to say this...I miss him so much. So very much.
Thank you Jenny, for being such a dear friend to Baby and me. I'm just home, we're just home.....so much of his 19 years of life in so little a metal box?? I'm reduced to tears. IT'S NOT FAIR. But I know I'll be better, and I know my "boy" is home. Forever. With me.....
Take care, my readers. You mean so much to me. And that will never change. EVER. That's a promise.......from me. The Dad. HIS Dad........
Thanks for being here. Always. What would I do without you? That I could NEVER answer.

Thursday afternoon, I said goodbye to my dog, Henry. For 15 years he gave my husband and me such joy and gentled our souls. The love you give comes back to you (to paraphrase The Mountain Goats)...be at peace, friend.

Thank you Kelli..I'll hang in...each day gets a little better. He's home now. At least in my heart. You're so sweet. You are! Your words are so much the ones I needed.
I'm sooo sorry. I know how much it hurts. All too well. And thank YOU so so much for your kindness.

Eileen, Henry would say, right now, and he would...I promise... "Mom, you were, and are, such a great Mom..."
No past tenses here from me. Never! And thank you...it's people like you two who bring so much love into our world. And we're lucky, just because of you. So....thanks! Peter

I still miss my furry kids too, but the grief does eventually mellow into some very fond memories. Peace to Peter and Babycakes.

I just found and started to read this blog a few days ago and have enjoyed it.

I am sorry for your lost, it was a couple of years ago, but I lost my cat after 16 years. She was the best friend to have in many cases. So I understand how it feels.

Again I'm sorry.

Cristopher, thank you for becoming a new reader. There are so many past posts, best taken a few at a time. I welcome you, and thank you for your kind words. Yesterday was tough just because I brought him home, in a box. But he's right there, on the mantle over the fireplace, and I say hi every day. And that makes me feel so much better.
So welcome Christopher! And to everyone else, you know how I feel about you. What did you think of my AL East discussion with myself? I was forced by just how close the clubs are in totality to come to any other conclusion.
Hey Chris, I'm going to look and see if you have a blog, too. Bye....happy Sunday all!!!! And thanks, as always.

Thinking of you Peter. Hope you're doing better today -- Sunday. :(

I'm also sorry for your loss. I've never had a cat (because I'm allergic), but I remember when Regis Philbin lost his cat a year ago, he was also very choked up about it (on his show). Take care.

Thank you on this Monday. To tell you the truth, I'm doing OK, but slowly. That's how much I love him....no past tense, ever! Enjoy our Sox romp on this opening day, and my heart is bigger just because of you, my readers. You make this world better. For me. That's for you, Carol, and Eileen, and Kelli, and MCW, and Christopher and Kristin and..I could keep going, but my tears make it tough to type.....but you make me smile through my tears. Am I a wuss? Why haven't I gotten over the loss of my best friend? I'm sure I will....19 years is a long time, a time that I could always look next to me and hear his gentle purr and his little warm body sleeping right next to me.
Again, my readers, and I'm humled just saying that, you are so precious to me, and thank you for the beloved comments. I never thought anything could be so tough. But yes, he was THAT good a "boy." And I miss him terribly. I'll be OK..you've helped so so so much. Peter..I Iove each and every one of you.

And I wish I had done a better job of spelling this English language of ours. But my thoughts? They were RIGHT there! Thank you so much.
