Bless all of you for taking the time to write. Just reading your posts makes me feel not so alone. And thank you also for your perspectives, and Grace for your "step by step" instructions. I do see what you mean, that I have the capacity to love another without taking the love away from Moufle.
This past year I have been to the shelter and to the adoption fairs, and have fallen for a couple of kitties and talked myself out of it. But I also see how cold it is outside right now in Tacoma, and if I could rescue a kitty and give it a warm home that would make me (and Moufle too) very happy. Yes 2 kitties is what I am thinking, so they can have each other for company when I am at work. Thanks also to those who shared your last moments and how you also struggled. My heart goes out to you because I know how it feels. I'm doing better today, her anniversary date is coming up next week and it will be hard. I'll come back here and read these again, and offer my condolences to others here. Maybe that's the learning I need, that love is infinite and I'm allowed to give as much as I want without limit. Thank you all again, so much. Bless you.
