It's been just past six months since we lost our little Lucy. Another Solstice has passed, this time Midsummer, after losing our little darling last Yule. We still miss her every day. We've found our routines, but these are still us living without Lucy. I haven't been back to the vet's office since that terrible time, my husband takes our other cat for her appointments, and I don't think I'll ever, ever be able to bring myself to walk in there again. Our house is just so very quiet now. She brought so much light and life to our lives and our home.
I Love You, Lucy-Bear, Always, Momma

I am so sorry for the loss of your little cat. Please when you want post here and share your feelings with us. Cats are such magical creatures and they have a much deeper understanding of "things" than we do, or could ever hope to. How is your other kitty doing? Again I am so sorry for your having to be so sad. I would like to buy into the old adage that says that time heals all wounds, but it is not true. You will however learn to live with the pain.

I really feel for you in your grief. I don't know what I am going to be like in 6 months time. It scares me. I am not likely to go back to the vets again either, as they misdiagosed my boy, and it was only because my instinct told me that he was so ill that I insisted that he be taken to a vet hospital instead. They did their best, we all tried.
I am trying not to be angry about the vet, but it is hard. I am finding it difficult at home, walking around the house and remembering the things he used to do and the habits he had. I hope this gets easier for you as well as me. Shiannon

Dear Lucy's mom, what a beautiful name for your little girl. One of my dogs is called Lucy. I'm sorry you miss her so much, it is just amazing how fast times goes by. I lost my dog Jessie (Lucy's momma) 3 months ago and my cat Neko one month ago and it feel like it was yesterday the last time I held them and I kissed them. Some days is better and others I just cry and cry, but it is just part of the grieving process. I dread so much the street where we found our little Neko dead after he was hit by a car, I just feel terrible, so I can understand how you feel. I hope you can think of how happy you were with Lucy and that she's waiting to meet you again one day. Diana, Jessie and Neko's mom.

Thank you all for your kind words. Yes, I found this site and this forum to be such a help when we were losing and then lost our girl. There are such wonderful people here! It has gotten better with time, though of course that void is there and will always be there for us. Thankfully our other cat Gwen is doing well. To be honest, we never expected to lose Lucy so soon, but more so Gwen as she has some medical problems, seizures and she takes phenobarb twice a day. But Gwen is doing well, and seems to be adjusting to losing her sister. She still looks for her sometimes though, just walks through the house and checks all of Lucy's old favorite places. As for us, I still expect to see her sometimes when we come home and such.
Fortunately, we have a wonderful vet, but going there just feels unreal to me--I can't even think of it. I don't know how my husband does it, but thank goodness he does.
