I just knew...We were supposed to get him... I don't know why..But I have not been sorry that we got him...
I love him to death.... and...When he goes... I admit...I hope he comes to visit me... I truly hope he does....
I lost my precious, sweet cat Fraffy November 26, 2008. Like you gimme_some_truth, I adopted her when she was about 6 months old from the humane
society. I always had a problem because of all the cats there on any day, I never could decide and I wanted to take them ALL home. Until I came face
to face with Taffy. (named changed to Fraffy for some reason by me). One look at her and that was it. I wanted that cat. All other meowing faded
as I looked at Taffy and she looked at me
We took her home and she was so funny. She made funny noises so we'd call her noise. She held one dainty paw up against her chest as she was sitting
in the "normal cat sit position." She'd make little trilling noises every time you touched her. I always treated her and paid attention to her as
much as I could because I knew the day would come when she would die. (I'm getting misty eyed typing this) So I petted her every change I got. She
slept with me every night. I love(d) that cat more than I've ever loved anything. We had one of those connections. I can't explain it, it was just
there. I have three cats now and I do love them, there just is not that same connection as with Fraffy.. I won't go into detail of her final days
and the nightmare I went through. I would like to post about it sometine. It was one of the worst times in my life. My mother committed suicide
when I was ten. I have to say that Fraffy dying after having had her for 14 years devastated me more than my mother dying. Sometimes Fraffy seemed
to be the only thing in my life for me to hold on to.
I miss her so terribly much. I still cry, thinking about her last days and how I feel I failed her. Yes my eyes are watering.
But back on topic, after she died, I did notice a very cold spot by my hand where she used to curl up with me. I wondered if it was my imagination
but my on hand did seem extra cold.Then I think one night I thought she was rubbing up on me in bed.
I was wondering, is there a place around here to talk about your beloved pets dying so people can write about their experiences? Kind of like a grief
thread? I think it helps to talk about it. I know my situation just about finished me. I feel so guilty what I did in her last days. I tried to to
the best I could, but I feel it wasn't good enough.
So I'm wondering if there is a thread about this somewhere or maybe I could start one somewhere? Any ideas?
Thanks for reading my rambling =)
