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 :crying

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...:patback

:( 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.

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.

((((((((((hugs)))))))))))) Speechie.
I know EXACTLY how you are feeling and have done the same thing today...just not because of Christmas carols. It was exactly a year ago today that I took Mocha had her surgery and it is also 50 weeks since she passed away. As I was driving to and from work, all I could think of was driving that same way with her last year.

It is extremely heartbreaking....and very hard emotionally...but know you aren't alone. I am so hoping Mocha and Teddy are comforting each other at the Bridge. I miss her every single day .... just like you miss Teddy. They will always have huge parts of our hearts.

Sending lots of hugs Speechie. There's just nothing that any of us can say, except that we know what that pain is like. I wasn't on the forum for quite some time and missed the entire story, though I read about it after the fact. It was so heartbreaking. :(

What a beautiful and sweet, sweet little boy! And what a huge hole he left in your heart, even in the short time he was with you. It says so much about how special a kitty he was.

I am so sorry! I remember reading about Teddy and following his story. I hope you find comfort in knowing that he is not suffering and that he knew how much you loved him. Sending you hugs.

Thank you,...he was a special little guy. Just gone so soon, and we were completely in love with him so fast. What a beautiful bond we had. I will never forget the amazing support that was online here- I was sitting in the ER with him and getting strength with so many of you. I am thankful for this place!
