Too Many Losses

Well, I removed Lucy’s picture from the top of the blog. And in the sidebar, I put her under In Loving Memory. Too very sad. I am not crying as much now, but still once in a while I just am still in shock that she’s gone.

And then we lost Littles, too. And last year we lost Angel. It all comes in waves, when you don’t space your animal’s ages out well and they get old at the same time. Though really we didn’t think of spacing them out, we just fell in love with them and took them home. Though now we are not fostering for rescue, and so when I get a dog or a cat, I put a lot of thought into it. We won’t be getting another dog for a couple of years. And I don’t think we’ll be getting any more cats, and we just can’t give them the lives they deserve.

And so life goes on. Not putting a picture in this post, because it’s too sad for me to put one of Angel, Lucy or Littles. And of course Kip and Jackie are always in my heart, too. Kip died in 2000, and Jackie when I was a teenager.

They are a part of me forever. I feel like an Immortal from Highlander. My loved ones dying as I live on. If they could think about it, maybe they would think I was immortal too. But I’m not. Just longer lived than the furkids I love so much.

One thought on “Too Many Losses”

  1. No one ever wants to think about planning on losing their animals when they are just getting them, I know I have a time coming up,hopefully a long ways away when all my border collies will be old all at the same time, Liz and Breeze at just months apart ;-(, and Cricket just a few years younger then them, but guess we can just trust we will have the strength when the time comes to remember all the good times and know we will just get through when times are just not as easy, it is hard to even think about it now, so not sure how I will handle it.
