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.

Yes, she is fine now, young and healthy again. It is us who are left behind that have to cope with the loss.
Anniversaries are hard, 6 months, 12 months even after many years.

I get it, I've been there. i just read a good book called After death signs by Brent Atwater. I wanted to learn more to recognize when Honey is around. I know that she is there, I talk to her all the time and I hear her in my head, and no, I'm not crazy, we just had that extra strong bond. Purrs.......

She left a hole in your heart; it doesn't heal over very quickly. But I do believe she is sending her cat friends to look in on you!
