Losing SP and my little old cat was a double whammy this week. The last four days I’ve eaten poorly half a day and well the other half, so I guess I could be doing worse. I’ve made a point of getting in the pool each day; I think it’s helping me sleep better.

I’ve been accumulating clean laundry. Two of four baskets is now put away. The dishwasher is busy cleaning the dishes for me. My boy cat has stuffed himself into a round basket with his tail and one leg hanging overboard, funny guy.

Salmon, asparagus, oyster mushrooms, and cheese biscuits for dinner tonight. After buying and eating so much chicken, we’ve gone off it for awhile. Fried chicken and baby food were all Miss Moppet was eating toward the end. Husband went to put food in her place, and I’m constantly reminding myself that I don’t have to step around or over her.

Some good things that last week:
The cute picture of her slurping water with her little black fuzzy head in my mug.
She wasn’t an overly snuggly cat, but she liked to lie across my shoulder sometimes.
I’m glad that she didn’t need assistance at the end.

I’m making an effort not to let depression get the better of me. “Dark inertia” (from the Bhagavad-Gita) is just too easy.

    Another Spark friend lost her rescue dog last week, too. It makes me so sad for both of you. My dogs are both in their senior years so I know it is coming. I give them as much loving as I can in the here-and-now. I know it's a tough time but you will get through it. Love on the cats you have left and let their purrs heal your heart. emoticon

    Yes, getting in that pool is a good way to stay active and comfort yourself. As a friend was told when she lost her husband, "Don't turn to food." It's good advice, but we truly find comfort in certain foods. Why else do our friends and neighbors bring the casseroles, desserts, and other comforts when there's a death? Maybe you and your sister could go out for donuts to remember bother your mother and Miss Moppet. emoticon emoticon

    Losing is a part of loving. We had chicken the other night and Miss Moppet is all I thought about. RIP little girl.

    Be kind to yourself in your loss. I'm sorry you're hurting. This is the price of love. Hopefully, you can take some comfort in the fact that you gave that little lady a loving home for 20+ years! That's a great life for a cat and you allowed her to live and die on her terms. You were a great cat-mom and did the upmost to keep her happy. I'm sure she went happy and loved. emoticon
