I am not sure when, if ever, my grieving will end.
The last few months have been so hard.
Losing my brother before Christmas and now Charlie. The last couple of months have been a watch and see kind of life with Charlie.
He has been losing weight and going downhill but he still had light in his eyes. Friday night that light was gone and he looked deep into my eyes and said, Mama it's time.
I always say 'our eyes met across a crowded PetSmart and he was mine and I was his'
That never changed and never will.
I held him and loved him until his last breath.
I will never be the same.
He has taken a piece of my heart with him.
How do you thank and honor a sweet kitty that has been with you through so much!
Always a beautiful boy and early on he knew how to 'pose' for the camera
Years later he could still 'strike a pose' and make my heart melt
Always more then just 'a cat' he was my constant companion. He filled that empty place when my girls left home. He comforted me through a divorce, deaths and much loss.
Now I mourn his loss.
Sleep well sweet Charlie!
