I am beginning to go into another level of grieving. The last few weeks I was busy with a class & so it kept me distracted. Now I am home and the hole is apparent. My dog, Max, & my other cat, Erica, seem to be down too. Romeo was such a special part of all of our lives. I feel guilty for all the times that I yelled at him when he'd chase Erica. I also wish that I would have been able to give him the love that he wanted from me every second that I was home with him. He just wanted to be as close to me and love me as much as he could.. Here is his picture.

What a sweet little Cat. He looks so cute in his Christmas outfit.
My heart goes out to you. We had to say goodbye to our little dog Pepe one month ago. The house is so empty and I don't know when I will ever get over the pain of losing him.

Awww, what a darling kitty, Kevinm. I know that feeling of wanting to have given more. My heart goes out to you. Romeo is so beautiful and obviously loved. I'll bet Romeo knew then and knows now. You are in my thoughts and prayers! Same to you Sweetpepe. It's a gosh awful feeling. Hugs! Here's a poem which brings me much comfort at times like this since I too lost my Alex and am grieving. You'll probably recognize it and the Author is "debatable" at this time so we'll just say Author Unknown.
"I Did Not Die"
Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.
And where are they? Here's a song called "To Where You Are" performed by Gosh Groban. I'll post a link to the video in case you have the capability to watch and hear and please make sure to read the lyrics. Very comforting and who can say for certain? Here's the link ...
"To Where You Are"
Who can say for certain maybe you're still here. I feel you all around me. Your memory's so clear. Deep in the stillness, I can hear you speak. You're still an inspiration. Can it be? That you are mine. Forever Love. And you are watching over me from up above!
Fly me up to where you are beyond the distant star. I wish upon tonight to see you smile! If only for a while to know you're there. A breath away's not far to where you are. Are you gently sleeping here inside my dream? And isn't faith believing all power can't be seen. As my heart holds you just one beat away, I cherish all you gave me everyday! 'Cause you are my Forever Love watching me from up above and I believe that Angels breathe and that love will live on and never leave! Fly me up to where you are, beyond the distant star! I wish upon tonight to see you smile if only for a while to know you're there! A breath away's not far to where you are! I know you're there! A breath away's not far to where you are!
Blessings and Hugs!

What an adorable photo of your Romeo. And Angelcareone, such beautiful poems and lyrics. It's never an easy journey - I've wished so much these last 10 days that I could get my Jesse girl back and it literally made me sick with frustration. But the only thing I can do now is focus on the love and wonderfully special moments she brought to our lives - without her I would not have been the person I am today, and I'm sooooo glad I rescued her from the awful pet shop she was in nearly 13 years ago. She also rescued me in more ways than she'll ever know.
I know Romeo and her are hanging out - she was a dally, but she did love cats!
Stay strong - my thoughts are with you.

first of all, what a gorgeous boy your Romeo is...he looks like such a character and such a good snuggler. I am so sorry for you loss and your pain. It is all consuming. They are our babies, our soulmates. they are part of our lives and when they leave, it is so hard to deal with. When you slow down is when you miss them the most. I am so sorry Kevin. i know how you feel. My baby has been gone for 5 and a half months and I am still a mess, I don't ever know if the pain will go away and if I won't expect him to be snuggling on the couch. Just know we are all here fo ryou. A big cuddle to you, Nuggetsmum Alana

Romeo is so cute with his little coat on. He must have liked it for cold days. Sorry about your loss. He looks like a real cutie. Take care.

I shouted at my Basil cos he was under my feet when I was trying to cook. He passed a couple of days later, how bad did I feel. We do these things, we are human after all. When they are gone, we always have regrets. Hang in there, I am so sorry. Love Di xxx
