Missing Teddy- hard time of year

Most days I cope really well and I have heartwarming memories about my kitten Teddy. I got him last year right around this time only to have him die the week of Christmas from F IP.
Well today was the first day that our local radio station started playing Christmas music, and it just hit me with a wall of pain. When Teddy was in isolation for Giardia and ear mites, I had him in our guestroom and would play the radio for him if I wasn't home. All day he would listen to Christmas music snuggled up in bed, I would come home to check on him and he would lift his sweet little head, yawn, stretch and come greet me. We always had Christmas music on in Teddy's room.
I just pulled over and sat in the supermarket parking lot, sobbing my eyes out for 10 minutes. God, my heart hurts. I just wanted to come here, because I know you guys would understand

I can't find any words to say, except that you loved Teddy heart and soul--he knew that......

So sorry Speechie. It is so hard with the holidays coming up.
You took such good care of Teddy. What a wonderful, loving home
he had with you and your family.

Speechie, hugs galore going out to you - I know nothing can fill that spot that that little guy filled, and it's no wonder you have some real sadness at this time of year. I think some tears for such a sweet little soul are not a bad thing, and I know you will get through it because I know you've gotten through this far. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers...

Huge, huge hugs to you. I know how you must feel. I think most of us do, sadly. Thank you for sharing that anecdote. We completely understand and give you tons of support. Know that Teddy is here with you in spirit.

That is so sad. I lost y Oz at a very young age over a year ago now and my heart bleeds for you.

Awww, has it been a full year already!?? I remember rejoicing in his kittenhood and crying with you when he passed. I know Skye is a blessing but he is not Teddy so it's hard. Hugs to you this time of year. I know it will get easier and easier as the years go by. The first is the hardest. I cried when I unpacked Sam's Christmas stocking and I know I will again when I unpack Missy's and Zipper's. It's never easy losing a beloved furbaby, but they are waiting for us.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

Thanks for the love and understanding, everyone. I knew so many of you have been in the same place and would get it...
Group hug for all of those who have loved with blind devotion and lost...
I needed those hugs today
