Diz was a shy boy so she definitely is making the 'first move' Marie.

I never cried more than I have the past 2 days. But what's beginning to happen is my thoughts aren't of that last trip to the vet or even of the last few months but more of the things about him that made me laugh and love him so much over the years. When I was getting ready for bed last night I remembered a game we would play to tire him out before going to sleep, chasing a pillow case around the mattress. He would FLY around jumping to catch the pillowcase! And how I would tickle him and he would make that frustrated meow when I used both hands, like "no fair!" How he would knead my neck before he fell asleep next to my head. How in the morning I would put his food down, go shower and he would wait for me to return to show me he's eating.

You're right Judy, he always will be with me. I know he's happy where he is now because he is whole again and he has a bit of my heart and a bunch of pals to keep him company.

And I'm sure the little sneak will drop me a line from time to time!

Thanks to all of you for helping me through this.

Hard day, hard time. Much sympathy. Yes, it can be a lonely road, many people do not understand the bond and the grief. You did well.

dizzy's dad, I am crying both tears of sadness as well as joy for you because you and Dizzy had such a wonderful life together and you shared such a deep deep bond. I understand when you say "but if the choice is working through this or never having the joy of being owned by him I will take this gladly." I must admit that for 4 decades I led a pretty stoic life until cats and my sweet Angel came into my life. I never believed in the old saying, "Better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all." But after my first cat died, I completely changed. Now I understand my life is not complete unless I am helping or have a kitty with me at home. As you volunteer, you may want to consider fostering cats (it's what I am doing now), not only to comfort yourself, but also to help those who just desperately want and need some love. And you have so much to give of that after learning so much from Dizzy. Sending you lots of love myself. I know Dizzy is watching over you and will let you know when he has chosen the special cat that he feels will bring you happiness again and keep the love going until you meet again.

Maggie & Phoebe
Kitty, Lucy Girl, Bobby Boy, and my sweet Angel forever in my heart.
