Thank you all so very much for your wonderful, comforting comments here and on Facebook and your emails about Miz Poo. I know how much she meant to me, and it was touching to see how much love is out there for her. It’s never easy to say goodbye to these beloved creatures who aren’t with us nearly long enough, but it’s part of the deal we make (and never think about) when we fall in love with them and bring them home. I keep expecting to see her laying on the chair behind me, and so when I see the chair empty, it’s momentarily surprising before I remember.
The other cats don’t seem to notice her absence except for Jake, who has been occasionally walking through the house howling, I expect that they knew her time was coming before we did.
So, again – thank you all, I so appreciate your kind words.
Today you get TWO permanent residents (Kara’s turn was yesterday, and I could have just bumped her to today and then Joe Bob to tomorrow and so on, but there’s a strict schedule on the calendar – IN INK – and I would eventually have gotten confused!)
