A little comforting...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
...I am feeling a bit of comfort after my horrible experience yesterday. When my husband came home last night, he buried Simon right behind my garage. For some strange reason, I feel so much better knowing he is right there.
We took all of the members advice and let Sunshine see him before we buried him. She only looked for a moment before she ran off, but at least I think she knew it was him. She also is in a better mood today. She was very mopey yesterday, and not eating. But during the night I heard her playing and she seems frisky this morning. Relief!! I was starting to think maybe she would be permanantly scarred by this.

So, thanks to you all for all the posts, emails, PM's ( and phone calls, Catarina ). You helped me a lot thru a really terrible day.
Simon is Cat Page 1141 if anyone wants to his his cute little face. I found a lot of comfort looking thru photos yesterday, and I still think he is the cutest kitty ever!!

Thank you all.

I am glad that you are feeling better. I lit a candle last night for Simon and you. I'm glad that Sunshine is doing better as well.

Daniela, I too am glad you are doing better....I was really worried about you, and Sunshine. I said several prayers for you guys.
I hope everything continues to get better for you all. *HUGS*

I just looked at Simon's page...just about tore my heart clean outta my chest.

No loss is easy, but one so young!

Sorry doesn't seem like enough, but...

Simon waits for you (you know where) and I'm sure he's grateful for the life and love you showered him with.

Sincerest sympathy,

That was very well said, Bill....Simon indeed was a very beautiful kitty.

The loss of a loved one is always hard to deal with. Find joy in remembering the love you share with your little fuzz ball. Hopefull you and your family will remeber him as he was and not as you found him. My thought are with you!

I am trying so hard to remember him like the sweet little kitty he was. But unfortunately I think the picture of him as I found him on the sidewalk will always be with me. I only can hope it fades with time. I don't want to have that vision in my head for long, it was such a disturbing sight to see.

Daniela, I think in time, that image of him will fade...and you will only remember the good times, and how he was when he was alive.
I know when my father died, I was right beside him, and for weeks, even months afterwards, everytime I thought of him, all I could see was the look in his eyes as he died, and it haunted me for a long time, but it has been a year and 4 months now, and when I think of him now, I remember all the good times, when he was strong and healthy and I rarely see the bad images. It takes awhile, just hang in there....we are all here for you.

Daniela :angel2::daisy:

I had found this when my kitty died and I thought it would be nice for you to see this:

"Farewell, Master, Yet not farewell.
Where I go, ye, too shall dwell
I am gone, before your face,
Moment's time, a little space.
When ye come where I have stepped
Ye will wonder why ye wept."

When I found that myself, I smiled. I hope you smile too sweetie

I'm so glad that you're feeling better today.
I know I told you that a new kitty would be the best thing to help...I still think that my "cat loving" confidante has so much love to extend a homeless baby!

Thinking of you sweetie!

What a precious little boy he was. I can't tell you enough how sorry I am for your loss. I'm glad you let his mama see him and that she is doing better. Hang in there, hon.

Thank you Donna and all the rest of you who have posted. You are so right Donna, he was a precious little boy. I was completely in love with him, and always said he was my "little guy".

I know I'll feel better with time, but all of you have helped me a great deal. And for that I will forever thankful.
