*sigh* Our immediate family is another cat short. Our daughter's remaining kitty (and her first of her own) died a couple days ago. Mystic wasn't looking good when we stayed with Loverly earlier this month. Loverly said that Mystic had pretty much stopped eating after Dan died and she figured poor Mystic was so lonely she was slowly dying of a broken heart. RIP sweet kitty.
I'm so sorry, I know how it hurts when we lose our babies. 2 of our 4 pugs in my avatar have left us and the other 2 beneficiaries of Mork's massage skills will be 15 this year. I had told Craig no more animals but I just couldn't resist the baby kitties.

Thanks guys. I told Loverly we should get Mother/Daughter hamsters. squee! She said that's OK, that she still has her turtle Herbie. Hmm, guess I won't bother either. After all, I still have Himself. He's a little like a pet rock - less active than a dormant turtle.

I'm sorry too. It's always awful when we lose a pet....a family member.

When my dear cat Monster passed, I called in for the first time ever. I just couldn't paste a smile on my face and get through it at work.

I am so sorry.

Thanks CCL. Mystic was our daughter's cat. She called me early Saturday afternoon. Her guy friend took her to breakfast, then he buried Mystic on his property. Loverly couldn't handle her second of two cats dying a couple of months apart, but she didn't have time to think about it too long. After we got off the phone she had to drive to her co-leader's home for a indoor camp-out for their Daisy Girl Scout troop. Five, five-year-olds from 4:00 PM until the next afternoon , at which time the parents were invited to join in the bridging ceremony to Brownies before taking their scouts home. Haven't talked to her yet this week but I know she's alive - a mutual friend on Facebook said both our kids stopped by her place Tuesday.

We lost him back in October of 2005 at the age of 12 to DM and Megasophagus, that's a pretty good long life for a GSD. The Vet told us that she never dreamed that he would have survived, but I'm just stubborn that way, to the bitter end at least ... we miss him everyday

So sorry to hear about Mystic, CG.

I felt so bad for Violet and Monkey while the kids were here because their life was turned upside down. They both kind of look at my craft studio as their hideout and it got turned into our bedroom so the kids could have ours. Monkey hid under the bed for the whole two weeks, coming out when she needed to eat and use her box, and then roamed the house after the kids went to bed. Ten year old Violet was tormented by the kids and wouldn't leave my side. I guess the two days when I was in the hospital and TB was at work, the Mom (who has known Vi since she was a pup, let her into the "room" for rest periods.

Well, I think some good and bad has come out of this. Monkey is still a wild child, but she also enjoys cuddling and belly rubs a lot more than BK (before kids). She is trying to get out of the house less and when the kids did come, she just made sure she stayed out of her way.

Violet on the other hand has aged terribly. She is afraid of everything and is very whiny and clingy. I also think she is more sore and lame than before they came. I am quite worried about her. I don't know what to do for her.
