i just read your reply to Pete, I’m touched by your empathy. This pain draws us together in the most unwanted way to souls without faces and broken hearts. Leo is a beautiful cat, your pictures capture the mutual love you shared.
Being an RN was a blessing for Leo, I know you don’t believe that now, but it was, and as brief as it was, that short amount of time after leaving the hospital was spent with *His* people. He could have died at anytime but it was with you and your Mother, those he knew and loved the most.
He has a sibling at home, so does my girl, you bottle fed, so did I. You experienced the *firsts* of almost everything. So did I😔 I tell Browns, Tankie’s littermate, that we both love her every night and I use her name. How is Leo’s brother/sister doing? I'm soo sorry you have a reason to be here but it’s a godsend to know others exist who understand completely how destroyed you feel. You lost a beautiful four legged soulmate/child. There are no words that come close to describing the deep consuming pain that can bring you to your knees and only leaves for brief hours of sleep. Hugs,,,,,
Lynn, Tankie’s mom, forever
