My Rupert has been gone 16 weeks at 2.30pm today and I miss him more than ever.  I miss his miaow, nurses, cuddling up and everything about him.  I go near his favourite place in the greenhouse and still expect to see him and he is not there.   I talk to his photo all the time.  It is a large one and it seems so large as life.  Sometimes I wonder did I really have him or was it not real.  It seems so long since I saw him.  I am finding it hard to remember some things about him already and I don't want that.

Today the kids are at school and I am all alone and I sit and dwell on the good times but I seem only see the bad end at the moment.  When does the bad feeling go away and I start to remember him without tears?

His identical sister is still with us and she has decided she wants to be my friend now.  It is nice but not the same.

Dear Rupertsmom,

I'm sorry you are feeling so sad today, but based on the things that are going through your mind about your precious Rupert, I can totally understand.  I mark the weeks, days and times, too, since my boy, Grunt left this life 11 weeks and 2 days ago.  The wondering whether having him was real is familiar to me too.  His being gone is so sadly real.

Quite frankly, I don't think any of us will ever stop thinking of our Beloved Ones, stop missing them, stop crying when we think of them - we've all loved too deeply to just put it away out of our hearts, minds and memories.

I understand, my friend.

Rupert's Mum -I'm so sorry that you are still grieving for your Rupert. It's so hard to get over the loss of our angels.

My two cats have been a God send to me.  They normally are not affectionate but since my Piggy passed away, one of them has taken the role of caretaker for me and I couldn't be more appreciative. 

I think Rupert's sister probably misses him too and realizes you need love. Maybe she will be your caretaker like mine has been.

Big Hug,

Piggy's Mom.

Thank  you Empty Now and Gruntsmum forever for your kind words and messages for support.
Every day I have been logging on to this site and I hear the pain in peoples messages about what I had to do 16 weeks ago.  I wondered back then why we have to do something so horrible to our beautiful creatures that we love so much.  A really horrible part of life.  I still have Minnie and she has become very affectionate and is healing my heart a little but I would be too scared to get another cat.  I know there are thousands of cats that need a loving home and I feel I should get one but I am terrified of going through this pain again.  I still have to see what happens to Minnie.  She is 15 and half years old.  Do others feel scared to get another pet?  

Some days it seems a long time ago since I gave Rupert a cuddle and a rub and felt his beautiful soft fur.  He used to look up at me with his goo-ey eyes and he loved me I know it.  He was the most loving affectionate cat and he had some funny ways.  I have lost other cats but he was so special.

My thoughts to all those who have to make horrible decisions for their animals.
