comforting thought I hope
- Hi Paula,
You said that well, I got Lenny 12 days after losing Rocky, too soon, well a little, it took longer to bond, after the grief, but we did and my reasons were like you say, sometimes we need a little longer, but there is a space to fill not to replace but to honour...that's the truth. A donation to an animal cause is another one....but there are so many unfortunate kitties waiting and to find a loving home is so difficult...so when a person is ready it is indeed a good idea to continue that love and give to an animal in an unfortunate situation....eventually, again.
My thoughts to everyone that has lost a loved cat and peace in dealing with the incredible sorrow and loss.
I agree with you Paula

Thank you for writing this down and sharing it.
