My heart is breaking twice over

Once for myself and once for my husband. It has only been 2 days since Frankie left us. I cleared up her litter box, put her pet steps and her little step stool away, tossed out her dishes. Her cat perches are still under all the windows, her starchaser toy still sits in the living room.

Every day after lunch my husband would pick up his book and his cane and announce "Nap time!" and he would walk to the bedroom and Frankie would follow him. She would lie on his chest while he read and then, when he rolled over to sleep she would curl up on his ankles and rest there.

Yesterday, and today again, after lunch and the 'nap time' announcement my husband cried. As he turned to walk to the bedroom he said "I want her back. I miss her" After he leaves the room I start to cry, for him and for me missing Frankie.

  1. So heartbreaking but what a blessing to have that video of her and G. I watched through blurry eyes but giggled at her tawking to you! She was such a special girl with a big personality. She'll forever be missed.

    1. The last time I saw G this upset was when our cat Boo died...I feel like I will never get over this - weird. the apartment is so empty and so quiet and we both keep expecting to see her in her usual places and when she's not there we both start tearing up...it's a shock to walk into the bedroom and not see her there, G says he started to put out her breakfast yesterday and then realized her dishes were gone and so was she...he said it's lonely in the mornings without her. It's just lonely all the time without her.

  2. Grace I am so sorry. I know that unbearable pain and how hard it is to break the routines we developed around their care. All I can say is I am so sorry.

    1. I didn't post about it here - I did put a memorial photo on FB and Instagram. We are taking this very hard for some reason - yes, we was such a special cat but she was jut a cat - and she was our last cat. At our age and with our disabilities we can't really do well by another cat...It's strange - I've lived with cats for 50+ years - so strange...

  3. So precious! I'm sorry for your loss – it's so hard to lose a furry little one.

    1. Thank you. We are still weepy, she was with us since she was 5 months old - and she had a huge personality and was so damn smart! Her passing has left a huge hole in our lives and out hearts.
