Thank you Jennifer ... I have anger, hurt, guilt, frustration, sadness and they keep rotating around and around. I have such trouble accepting the fact that my Rocky is not here with me. I feel like he's just hiding somewhere and will come out soon to eat or want me to open the door for hin to go outside. How I wish he was still here with me. I try to think of the good times and funny things he did and that works for a bit but then the image of him in distress pops back into my head and makes me sad all over again. Our loyal and loving companions (Rocky, Reeses, Marmalade, Bubby/Milo, Simba, and all the others are so terribly missed by us. I thank you all for the compassion and support at this painful and sad time.
I’m with you. I feel like Bubby is on vacation. A very long vacation. It just doesn’t seem real. Maybe it’s because I think he was too young for this all. I’ve heard of kidney failure in 16-17 year old kitties but 9? Just doesn’t seem right. In the end, he got dealt a bad hand of cards in the kidney department. I’m sure they were never functioning probably from birth.
I too have those same issues. I try to think of the good memories then I get a bad one. One from his final week. Today has been a pretty gloomy day for me. Not sure why. I’m just pretty bummed about him not being here. But like you, I’m trying to put one foot in front of the other.
Thank you for being here during this difficult time along with everyone else. I think we can all say we’re fans and members of the “Orange Boys Club” as James said! 🧡🧡
PS Rocky is so handsome! Quite the photogenic one 😻
