Call me strange I guess....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
And I am not sharing this with just anyone that I know.....but I know you guys will understand!

I've had cats in this house since 1993, and all this time I've never had a cat tree.....either didn't have the money or a place I could put it at the time, or couldn't find one that I liked . So, this week, I found one that I like o.k., was the right price, and since I cleaned house and got rid of some stuff last Monday, I have a place for it. I brought it home and set it up, and within 15 minutes there were a couple of cats on it. Was I happy? Nope, I wasn't....well, actually I was and I wasn't, truthfully, I sat down on the couch and bawled like a baby for a good long while. Why???........because while I was sitting there watching the kits play, I remembered my YumYum and realised just how much she would have enjoyed this........you know, she just passed away in Feb. of this year, but you wouldn't think that something so very simple would bring the tears back to the surface, would you?

Yes, we understand, Cindy. I think we have all been there at one time or another - not only with our pets but with loved ones who have passed. You just dab your eyes and smile at the memories.

Dang, now I'm tearing up.

I certainly understand My dad passed away Feb of this year and something as little as seeing his favorite coffee mug can make me cry.

Not strange at all! Sometimes weird things cause emotions to come up and slap us in our face. Whether it be a human or animal loved one lost, the emotions are the same. If it's a mug, a favorite toy, or a collar you find at the bottom of a box, it can still make you cry. Just think that YumYum is watching and playing in spriit.

B.C. has been gone 9 years, and I kept his collar and tag, and the receipt from his last vet visit in a ceramic bowl that a friend made for him that has a look-a-like kitty and his name painted in it.
I labeled it with his birth and death dates and it sits in a dresser drawer.
I don't go into that drawer if I can help it, but even a glimpse of Spaz's collar in my desk drawer makes me bawl, they had identical collars, she only wears hers on road trips.

I felt especially strange because I was also very, very close to my sister, yet I never shed a tear when she passed, and I miss her terribly.

We all mourn different things in different ways, don't ever think you are strange for mourning in your own way

Aw sweetie, that sense of loss will always be with you because you loved her so much.

The darnedest things sneak up on you, don't they?

I completely understand. I am the same way.

Not strange at all. I've had the same reaction over some of the cats at the shelter that have been put to sleep; they just never had a chance to enjoy life.

Aw Cindy just a big old hug from me. Every time I see a plastic bag out of the corner of my eye I think it is my RB boy, Lolly!
