    Off Topic: today I had to put my cat, "kitty" to sleep. He had stopped eating and looked larger around the middle than normal. He had cancer.

    On, I am so sorry for your loss! Was he old? I lost my baby, Cleopatra, just before I was married (nearly 38 years ago) when she was only 2 to feline leukemia, which was little known in cats back then. A very young intern diagnosed it,blood test confirmed it, when my Vet of 20 years didn't. I was so upset, I nearly called off my wedding! Maybe they are frolicking together in cat heaven. My second Cleo was a feral rescue in Vanuatu and I had to put her down at age 16 of cancer. Again, I am feeling your loss!

    Lori,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your kitty. It is always hard to lose a family member. My prayers are with you.

    I will be mailing my package to my SP later today. I just have to write a note to her. Here are some clues:

    1) she does post here but not a lot.
    2) from my door to hers is 750 miles.
    3) She has a pet.
    4) She celebrates holidays
    5) she is a grandmother

    Buslady, Good luck with your new dog. We rescued two 6-yr old Silkie Terriers and had them for more than 10 years. I still miss them fiercely but now am free to travel. My crazy cat stays home and my GS comes and feeds him. He went to the kennel just once and he was really MAD when I got home.

    Lori - I'm so sorry for your loss; pets are an extension of our families and their unconditional love makes them extra special. Thoughts and prayers for you at this difficult time.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    thank you everyone for your thoughts and hugs. Kitty was 15 and lived a very spoiled life. I had to put my other cat to sleep about 5 years ago, he was 17 and he had a stroke and was having convultions

    Lori, so sorry about kitty, I know how hard it can be. after we lost the last of 4 we moved down here with we swore off cats...until Ray came bounding out at a campground and adopted us (no fool he). I'm sure that if you're meant to have another kitty, it will appear. Altho we miss the freedom of just taking off without packing his majesty, who isn't quite the good traveler our prior cats were (he hasn't got the idea that it's a good idea to use a litter box in a moving vehicle, which means when we got home from DC I picked him up and put him on my lap to let him get out of the car and he peed all over my leg), we still wouldn't give up his love and affection for the world.

    It's just really so sad when we lose them...

    Sp I'm beginning the hunt for more info about you. I'm off to check your profile and recent messages to see if anything strikes me....too late to hide! You live in a state we do a lot of stopping in, your state is about halfway between Ga and NE, plus it's got a ton of great thrift stores, but I'm not sure where your town is so gotta look that up too...

    Well, if it's for me Jaba, I don't mind waiting. Know we love the same colors and we love holidays.

    OH, BTW, I too have a Brother machine - could be my SP #2!!!!!

    Lori, so sorry about kitty. I am a cat people and truly understand the empty feeling at the loss. Lost our 18 year old about 18 months ago - still miss him terribly even though we have another cat - they're never replaced. Hugs to you.
    Kathleen

    Live today as if it may be your last, for who knows...
