See You in a Little While

 Spyro:  Mom had the major sads today, so this is going to be a short post.

Karen Jo;  The floodgates opened yesterday while I was writing Herman's Gotcha Day post.  How I miss every little thing about him just came crashing down on me, so I'm taking a little while off from blogging.

Spyro:  In the meantime, what do you think of this for my header photo?  I am up on my spytower, looking at Mom.
Oja:  Mom thinks this would be a good photo of me for the header.  What do  you think?  Mom is very inexperienced at this.

Karen Jo:  I don't think I will be gone long,  but I don't want you to worry about me.  A wonderful thing is happening.  Spyro, who is anything but a lap cat has been jumping up on my lap and demanding attention and actually staying for a while.  Oja, who is a bit of a lap cat, but not really, has also been spending time in my lap and giving me lots of attention when I lie down to read or go to bed.  She is doing her very best to fill in as bedtime cuddle cat.  She has done this from the time she came out of her room and she is getting better and better at it.  With such good helpers, I should be back to being more myself soon.  Thank you all so much for all the kindness you have shown me.

There is nothing like a cat to help you heal. We are glad they are filling in and hope that they continue to give you lots of cuddles.

We understand too. If you need an extra hug just tug on my tail, I will be right there.

I like the two photos you are thinking about for the header.

I think that grief can wash over us in waves, and can hit us with force at unexpected times.

We look forward to seeing you again when you feel up to it.

It is all totally understandable -

So much happened soooo furry khwikhkly!

Of khourse, he'll always be there -

And all of woo will always be with him -

Mom believes each of 'us' that leave 'here' take some of 'here' with us - to share with the others at The Rainbow Bridge -

And we leave some of 'us' 'til we see each other again!

As she likes to khwote from Uncle Tupelo

It's not furever - it's just - fur now!

Spyro and Oja are working hard to make you feel better! It is hard, and you need to give yourself space to grieve and heal. Let the kitties do their work and come back when you can. The photos of them, I think, will make an awesome header.

Angel Prancer Pie said...

We'll see you soon. ((Hugs)) to you and comforting thoughts, too.

Spyro and Oja will be taking good care of you. Take your time, there's no rush. Sending love

We're glad Spyro and Oja are stepping up and being such wonderful support.

Purrs and Light from us....BTW, we think equal billing on the header photo would be nice. :-)

You can use something like PicMonkey to make a collage, or Picasa (also free) to do the same, though you have to download Picasa to your computer if you don't already have it.

We love your new header - it's so nice to see Herman's handsome face there as well as Spyro and Oja.
It takes time to start to heal Karen and you had taken such wonderful care of Herman - I know it takes a lot of time to start to heal. Justtake one day at a time.

Karen Jo, you take time and allow Oja and Spyro to heal your loss. Mom says when she got me, I helped her and Dad both heal from loosing all 3 before me kitties in less than 10 months, they had them all for 16 years...a big hole in their lives. And then I came to them. You be well and hug Spyro and Oja. Purrrrs, Savannah
