As I've said earlier,  the pain kind-of subsides and the fond memories return when acceptance starts to resolve,  but Pootie Paws caught me off guard this morning while in the middle of wakefulness and sleep. 
I thought I heard her crying for me this morning just before getting up. 
It's been over 3 months.
It didn't bother me too much in the morning because I'm busy preparing for work,  but at the end of the work day,  I let myself take the image in and mourn.

Yes, the phase of grief in between total agony and acceptance is a really odd place to be. The only real consolation, as you said, is that wherever they are, at least they aren't suffering. And thank you for letting yourself mourn.

Aww. The nights are hard as the sun sets for me, especially. (((Hugs)))
