Feeling rather low

Thanks guys. Yesterday was a day I don't ever want to have to repeat. I made Spike promise he'd live with me until he's absolutely ancient. Pepper, too. There's been some talk of getting another cat, but I don't know how serious the rest of the family was. At any rate, we couldn't get a kitten, not with Pepper as she is. She needs to grow up a bit first. And I know it's selfish, but I don't want an adult cat. I want a cat, to put it bluntly, who is going to stay with me for as long as possible. I've buried five cats in my garden in the last four years (four of them within the last two years) and I just can't face that coming around any sooner than it has to. I'm not getting another cat unless it can promise me I won't have to deal with it dying for another good fifteen years at least.

I can't even go and cry to my best friend about this. See above re: her dad dying. I haven't even told her yet. It's like someone sat down and tried to think of a way I could make her day even worse. Can't do it.

Feeling rather low. Could really use some good news. I think I'm due.

One more thing: if you were driving past the Jet garage in Stansted on Bank Holiday Monday at 9pm and a white cat ran in front of you and you didn't stop, then the next time you get in your car you'd better have the good sense to drive it off a cliff. Because if I ever find out who you are, I will hunt you down and eviscerate you.

    Honey, it's a cycle, my girl was a runt of a kitten when she came to me. Cat still gets upset that I get upset about her. It will happen...and we beat ourselves up about it....and want to beat others up too.

    Non pet lovers don't understand the 4-footed are a part of our family. My heart is with you dear...and, if you catch the person, let me know...i've got a few painful ideas as well.


  3. Big hugs for you. And a few more. And a couple more for the kitties.
