coming home

No matter how busy I am, it is when I open the front door and have the sudden anticipation of seeing Diamond, then the realization that he is no longer there, that it feels most lonely.

That really is hard. The day, and days, after. We wish there was a fast forward button for you, so you wouldn't have to feel this pain.


Mom reaches for Tamir at night and always has that feeling of heartache when she realizes he isn't there.

I don't know if you could say I was "lucky" when Chumley died so unexpectedly, because I still had Annie.

And then when I had to let Annie go, I still had the boys.

It's not that any remaining companions fill the void, it's just that you still have to care for them, that you have to surface from your grief from time to time to keep going for them.

I would find it very, very lonely indeed to come home to an empty house.

A "fast forward" button would be lovely, wouldn't it? So helpful.

I know it's taken a year and a half to move on from Annie's passing, as it did with Chum too. I don't "heal" very quickly, but time does ease the sharp, cutting pain of the grief.

Know just how you feel! Always looking for the one missing - even if you have a dozen. We just miss them so!

Re your comment on jff - yes, it is okay to put the badge on your blog!

I'm so sorry I went through that with the last kitty before Hannah and Lucy and it is very hard - I cried for days.
All I can say is the pain will ease but there will still be a hole in your heart.
Take care

Dear Lynettea,

I just read of Diamond's passing on Huffle Mawson's blog. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I was just getting to know your beautiful Diamond and am so saddened by his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I understand how lonely it is coming home after the loss of a pet, I have been there many times. But Diamond will always be with you in Spirit, and in your lovely memories of him.

You have my heartfelt sympathy. And Suka crosses his paws for your sweet Diamond and your comfort.

I'm so sorry you lost your sweet furbaby, Diamond.And I can imagine how you must feel after losing your precious Diamond. My Kassey has CRF and I so dread the day when she won't greet me when I get home from shopping.

Purrs to you - that has to be one of the saddest parts of missing Diamond.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the ripening fields of grain.
I am the morning hush.
I am the graceful rush
of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the star shine of the night.
I am the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

It's never easy losing a furbaby. You're left with a Diamond-size hole in your heart. :(

we only just heard and are so sorry! that big hole in the universe will never fill - but time will help to cope with it.

Yes, that is the most difficult and lonely part of all. I still saw my angel Graphite for a long while after he went to the Bridge. And every now and then, our Moosey "channels his inner Graphite," which seems to be Graphite's way of telling us he is watching over us and loving us still.

Hugs and purrs to you, Lynettea.

Thank you for the beautiful graphics you made of me...I hold them close in memory of my days on earth.
Welcome to heaven...

I am so very sorry. I have been offline and just read about Diamond. He was a very special boy and I loved reading about his adventures.

Oh it's so sad. But this photo shows an old and week Diamond. Unfortunately ...
