Grief

So, yes I will now strain every once in a while to put a complete thought together(and yes, my nickname comes from Walter Payton, one of the greatest football players who ever lived & the late pal of my mom). I am a sweet kitty, but not terribly bright, so bear with me. My first entry is about why we came to Catster and why we've stayed.

My mom's last kitty had to go to stay with the sister, and though the sister was well-intentioned, she had never had cats. The situation was unavoidable though - Mom was going through some intensely tough stuff & lost her home. She ended up in Florida, in a battered women's shelter, and had not been there a week when she got the call that there had been a fire & the cat had not survived. The sister thought cats would naturally try to escape danger but instead it hid in the closet. Mom went through months of panic attacks and seemingly the grief would never end!

A few years passed and I fell into her lap, and finally cleared the clouds away. She has now found Catster, and knew it would be good to have a support system in case anything ever happens to me. I am comforted knowing this, even though I am PURRfectly healthy, happy & always indoors.

Now with the passing of Mikko, who was just a kitten, Minnie, Arnold P., Babydoll, and the horror of Molly's death yesterday, we know we are in the right place! We have seen firsthand the love, support & comfort of catsters who truly care. Not only that, they are responsible owners. The tips, stories, and gentle suggestions are given generously, with no expectation or obligation.

Thank you, everyone! We are SOLD, and we are LOVING it!

prrrrp, Tink

Sigh, momma's eyes are leaking. That's so much that your momma has been through. Our family too has been through much tragedy over the years. And you're right, this place is just an incredible source of comfort. We're so glad you stayed here Tink. There's nothing like love to help you get through a bad day. And we have lots of it to give out here. So we're sending you and your momma tons of it.
