firecat: the face of my cat Biscuit (biscuit)
[personal profile] firecat
I really appreciate everyone's condolences about Biscuit. I'm fortunate that the people in my life understand it's hard to lose a pet.


For me one of the hard things is that the little habits we had together are gone, but very alive in my memory, and there will be a moment where I expect something to happen and then remember why it's not happening, and I feel very sad.

Biscuit sads:

The OH left the door to the bedroom open when he got up, but she wasn't there when i woke up. (She used to come into the bedroom and wake me.)

She didn't come into the bathroom and go "meep?" when I got up to go to the bathroom.

She wasn't running in and out of the kitchen impatiently while I made my coffee. I didn't make her breakfast along with my coffee.

She didn't sharpen her claws on the cat condo and then jump up on it when I sat down at my computer.

My computer was asleep, because she didn't walk on the keyboard last night on her way to the bedroom.

I'm really sorry for your loss. (And I'm sorry I missed the original post.)

Those little things are the worst. Almost two years after Shadow died, I still expect him to squeak at me in the morning. And I still automatically sweep the floor with one foot for Mr. Bell before getting off the bed...

God, I know exactly how this feels. Sigh. And it sucks SO much.

I'm so dreading this moment myself. Bean's getting older and creakier, sleeping more, getting thinner... Having lost cats in the past, I totally understand. :(

I hope so too. *crossing fingers*

I can relate to this. It's just awful. I dread the day when it happens again, because Marinetti is so much a part of my life and means so much to me.

Anyway, thinking of you tons.

Oh, I'm going to adopt the word 'pre-grieving'. It's such a good description of the way we can look too much to the future and make losses even harder than they are by nature.

I got sad at the thought of a lovely cat meeping in the bathroom.

I hear you. Those little noises and quirks are so precious. I'm sorry this is such a tough time. Holding a good thought for you.
