My Birthday.. feel sad.

Hello everyone:

So today is my birthday but is also my baby Rubilla's death's anniversary (she was 17), it is hard to believe it has been a year, for those who didn't read my story last year, I found out about Rubilla's death when my family called me to wish me a happy birthday, the vet called my mom on the other line and told her the devastating news.. My sister's cry revealed my worst fear.
Senda my 18 year old dog, passed 5 days after her, my family never told me about it since I took Rubilla's death so badly, I found out when I visit them for Christmas last year.

On the positive side Mark and the family gave me a very good birthday party.
I got a Wii for my birthday (SO MUCH FUN) along with Mario Kart, steering wheel included, paper mario and a classic remote control. I also got a very cute cow shaped bowl that reads utterly adorable, a Carmelo Anthony sports coat, money and a very nice hair cut.


I just have mixed feelings, I want to be happy but I feel like something is missing inside of me.

Sorry guys I am just a mess right now, can't help it, I am already crying.

Maria

Oh Maria, what a shame that Rubilla's death coincides with your birthday. It's so easy for anniversaries to spark the memories of how awful that day was last year. Having gone through it this year, I know how painful it is. Well, I guess it would be hard to say that Rubilla would want you to be happy (since let's face it, cats are mostly worried about themselves being happy), but at some level I think it's true.

It's so hard to lose a pet, but when it happens on a special day, it's harder yet. You will always love Rubilla, and if you're like me, you will often cry when you think about her.

I hope that you make plans for later today, something special that you love to do. You deserve a nice birthday.

Thank you for your kind words. It is amazing how caring you all are! , I have just received a PM from someone I have never exchanged words with, what a kind soul, the PM was titled: operation cheer Tweek.

I try to stay positive and keep myself busy this time of year, I don't care about myself or being sad on my birthday, after all I am still alive and she is up there in kitty heaven, it is so unfair.
Ok here I go again, I need to take another break.

Happy Birthday! And I'm very sorry for your loss. Rather than being sad, why not make today a day to celebrate both of your lives?

Happy Birthday, Maria!

Try to remember all the good times with Rubilla and Senda, pull out some pictures of both and let them make you smile, even if they're just mental pictures. They both lived good, long lives and were very loved so you must have so many good memories of them.

It is hard to lose something you get so attached to! They are always there for us, even when we just need to hug something soft and fuzzy! They don't ask for much, but give so much in return. I'm sorry for your loss, and for your sadness. Happy birthday, and as Marie said, try to remember all the good and happy times!
