Hello Again, It was two weeks ago today that my little old lady kitty went to the bridge. She was 18.5 years old. I wish she wouldn't have gone. I miss her so much. We just had a Pet Cremation and Urn showroom open here and I went there first. I didn't know about it until after Yngwie's vet already sent her to another place. All I could do was stand there and cry and left with nothing. Its just too painful still to make a major decision like that. I then went to the vet to get my 'booger baby'. She hated it when I called her that and would swoosh her tail up at me and turn as if to say "kiss my a** mama". She had a very colorful personality. We were together so long, we didn't need words to communicate. She came home in a small white box wrapped in black tissue paper and in a small black bag. It's really great to have her home but I really hate that she isn't here. I stopped work (I work out of my home) at 3:35 pm and came in the house and lit a candle and squeezed the life out of that bag while I cried like a grieving mother. She was pts at 3:45 pm two Fridays ago. I suspect that will go on for a long time. I again want to thank all of you for helping me through this. You have been a huge support system and I can't thank you enough for being there for me and everyone else. I love you pretty little one and miss you terribly!! Peace Jennifer Yngwie's mama

I had such bittersweet feelings when I got Cheeseburger's ashes back...he was home, but I miss him being with me so much. I have a solid oak box for him with his picture in the front, the painting my friend did behind it, his collar, candles, and his pawprints. Yngwie is a precious girl. You had so many wonderful years with her. I think we all must be thankful for the time we had with our angels. They leave us physically, but their love and spirit are in our hearts forever.

I know it is difficult to have Yngwie in a different form, but I hope it will also bring you comfort to have her back home. It is still a very fresh loss, and everyone grieves at their own pace. Don't try to rush it. Crying is healing and time will ease the intense pain, but for now allow yourself the time you need to work through this loss, and you know that there is unlimited support here. I loved your comment that you and Yngwie had been together for so long you did not need words to communicate, that shows how connected you were and still are because love never ends or dies. Wishing you peace and comfort in the days ahead. Kathy
