The 6 - Month Mark

It's 6 months to the day that I lost Mousie. It has not been easy for me. As you all know there are good days and bad. When you think you're ok, it sneaks up from behind and pulls the rug out from under you. The summer was the worst, and as soon as the weather started to change, I started to come to terms with it.
 Or so I thought. I have not done any pet-sitting as I don't feel ready to do so. Of course I see animals when I am out and about, but as I live in a predominantly urban area, The pets I see are mostly dogs - the enemy! I do see cats on occasion. When I do, I believe it is her - through them - checking up on me. (Don't worry, I haven't lost my marbles, hear me out on this one.) When I am at my local gym in the evening, there is a black and white tom that walks by the window sometimes and just stands and stares at me. It's like she is saying thru him: ''Yo, dude, you okay down there?" and I'm like, 'No! not at all. But hanging in there. Just.'
 And she's like, ' C'mon, don't be ridiculous. I'm okay now. I'm not in pain any more, so get a grip.' 
Okay Mouse. I'll try.

Sometimes, when I think real hard
it's almost like she's here and I can touch her.

Contemplating what has happened in the past week, and trying to make sense of it all.
The best we can do is try and find peace within ourselves in a world that seems to have lost all sense.

Spooky Face

Happy Halloween everyone!

Here's a pic of Mousie making 'spooky face'. She usually did this pre-rampage at midnight.

Mousie vs A Shrimp

It would never cease to amaze me how Mousie could bend and twist.

 She was meticulous, forever maintaining a hygiene standard.

 Long gone are the days that I could move my body like this!

Mousie vs. A Slinky

 (pic taken in 2011)
(It never seized to amaze me how long and stretchy Mousie was. I, and others always considered her to be a small cat, or as I would prefer 'petite'. But when you pet her or she was having a roll around, she would lengthen, and it was like. 'whoa, what's goin' on? Is this the same kitty?'.

Hanging In There

Hi Guys,
I've had a little break, but now I'm back. Sometimes we need to step away from things.

To find clarity.
