Thank you all for your kind words. Today has been especially hard. I'm really missing her today. i come home and I keep expecting to see her poke her head around the corner or come prodding into the kitchen screaming at me that her bowl is empty. I haven't had the courage to clean up her things...I know I'm going to just lose it when I do. I know my friends don't get really get it so I don't really talk with them. My wife just looks at me...I mean I know she's trying but she doesn't get it. The kids try to comfort me. Right now...i just try to get through in silence as best I can. It's only been 48 hours and it feels like forever. I knew this day would come but I never thought it would. I just miss her plain and simple. I miss her fur, I miss her presence, I miss her stupid claws getting caught in the carpet. I miss hearing her cough up a hair ball, I miss tiptoeing around it at 2 AM and then playing blind man's bluff trying to find it. I miss her so much...
