I am especially thankful this Thursday because all of my pets are healthy :)  We went through the scare with Chanel's 15% weight loss and Sasha vomiting and not eating for almost 3 days.  Sasha has been back to her normal happy self and Chanel is back to her normal weight of 8 lbs 6 ounces. 
So, now onto my big revelation.  Coco passed away almost nine months ago and as you all know I've struggled enormously with her loss. It was the first time I'd dealt with death so close to home and it was especally hard for me because she was only five years old.  Last week I was walking around in a store trying to hold back the tears because EVERYTHING - blankets, toys, dishes, cat beds, you name it reminded me of Coco for one reason or another.  Trust me I know it all sounds a little crazy!  I was basically feeling sorry for myself and very miserable.  Some days are better than others, but trust me I have had one too many like the one I am describing over the past nine months.  When I arrived home I realized Sasha has been vomiting and not eating.  I was very afraid after she was still not eating two days later and acting so lethargic which is so not like her.  I began to realize how much I have to be thankful for.  All of my pets are so special and I know Coco would want me to be grateful for them and not moping around being sad.
Don't get me wrong, I'll still have "those"days thinking about Coco and she will always have a BIG special place in my heart.  However, the events of the last week have been a revelation in that I know I need to focus on the present and the future and those who depend on me :) 
Thanks for reading and I hope this holiday season brings joy and happiness for all of you!

Oh I am sorry to hear that. You know it's fine to remember her and feel sad but the presence and life of your other dear pets are there to remind you that they 're still there to love you anyway. Cheer up, I'm sure she's fine wherever she may be. :-)

Michelle, I'm so sorry. I know losing a pet is like losing a limb.
Every once in a while I still ache for my first cat Muffin who died tragically.

I am so glad Chanel is back to her original weight and Sasha is well again. All your kitties are so lucky to have found a wonderful and safe home and such a loving and caring Mommy.

I'm so sorry. I dont even know what to say.

Michelle

Gosh everyone. Thanks for the sympathy. However, I really was trying to say that I was working through my grief. I know it sounds a little crazy that I am still so sad at times about Coco. It was hard to see a four year old cat go through such a terrible type of cancer and the chemo scared me (she did beat the odds and went into remission for a year :)

I know just how you feel. I am always so happy when all of mine are healthy or at least holding their own. I think everyone gets sad once in a while over someone that has had to go to the bridge. I have an anniversary coming up for me. My Squeaky had to go to the bridge Dec.23rd last year and I think I am going to do a tribute to her. Doing a tribute makes me feel like she knows that she is special even if she isn't here. I am thankful every day that all mine are here and doing well. Take care Michelle and have a good day. Smile

I think we are all sad at times when we think about the ones that we have lost. And it happens especially around holidays. I remember my Squeeky who went to the bridge a year ago Dec.23rd. So I can understand what you are feeling right now. You just have to remember all the great stuff about Coco and not the fact that she is gone.
Have a wonderful holiday and a great Sunday evening.
