You’ve probably noticed that I went for about 10 days without posting on this blog. Very rare, indeed. The reason is a sad one – one of my cats, my beautiful and spirited Carly, has disappeared.
When you have outside cats, you know full well that there’ll come a day when one won’t show up on the step for mealtimes or (in Carly’s case) on her window sill looking in. I’ve had outside cats all my life and have found that (especially for a female) two weeks is about the time you stop watching for them. She’s been gone a little over three, but I have to confess to looking at her favorite window every time I’m in the kitchen….hoping to see that precious face with that scowl that always made me laugh out loud.
Anyway, I miss her terribly, and I knew that coming to my Cat blog would be tough….it was.
Anyone who has pets knows the feeling – it’s just really, really sad. Our inside cat, Prissy, is going down (she’s an old girl!), and I truthfully can’t even think about it, but I know she won’t live forever.
Give your pets all the love they give you and hug them every chance you get
