Our elderly, gentleman feline buddy died four months ago this morning. Not a day goes by without tears and a terrible heart ache. Time is not lessening the grief. It may be making it worse. I would give everything I possess for just one more morning lap sit while he purred his beautiful deep purr as I stroked this throat and rubbed his back. Absolutely everything!! This is a wonderful site where others can and do understanding eachothers feelings, But, nothing seems to be helping overcome the terrible sense of total emptiness. I fear I may be losing my mind. The pain is horrible.
