June 13th. That was the one year anniversary of having to put my old tortoiseshell cat Tinkerbell to sleep. The vet came to my house on that day - and she died in my arms. One of the saddest days of my life and one of the lowest points. It had been a year since the breakup with my ex-wife, who also loved the cat. She was a very special animal to both of us. I was all alone after my little Tinker left me. Or so it felt.
Over a year later and my life has changed so much. I found a wonderful woman who loves me - and I love her very much. She is an animal lover ofcourse. And I think she would've liked my old cat a lot. I've healed and have moved on in my life. But I have not forgotten that special old cat. The one who was there for me when I needed her. I still get choked up sometimes thinking about her - seeing her catnip growing in the backyard. I miss her pretty silouhette. Her sweet disposition.
Tinker I will never forget you. When you left me you took a little piece of me with you. I will miss you always.

First, I am so sorry for your pain. The one year mark is a tough one for most of us here. I couldn't help but respond to your post "over a year now, I won't forget". That statement is so true. It's so amazing how these sweet creatures leave such lasting impressions, even after they are gone a year or more. But you're right, you won't forget. No one here would dispute that. We all come here because a special friend or friends touched our lives in such a profound way that their loss has left an immeasurable amount of pain. So we gather here, vent, cry, do whatever we need to, to get through the rough spots. I lost my Jasmine well over a year ago and her loss still impacts me to this day. I don't think that will ever change and I've accepted that's okay. She was so special and I know the bond we had will never be broken and I still have her love and no one can take that away. Sorry too you've had personal troubles but I'm glad you found someone to help you find some new happiness. Take good care and again know we're all here for you and understand. Hugs to you, JasminesMom (Kathy)

I'm sorry for your loss of Tinkerbell and the pain you are going through. It is truly a tough time. No matter how may days, months or years go by, we will always remember them and cry often for the loss of one so true and loving. I'm sorry you were experiencing so much personal pain at the time, but it sounds like you have found the person who is right for you. I wish you many wonderful years.
