Holy macaroni! I completely slacked off on my diary! Not entirely my fault though. Jack totally hogs the 'puter.
Let's see...what's new in my world? Hmmmm...not a lot really. Just the usual stuff. Jack and Lily are brats....I love sleeping right smack in the middle of the bed between Mom and Honey(Honey snores LOUDLY)...I just had a really yummy breakfast(Purina and some really awesome canned turkey fillet cat food.)...My sister picks on me...Oooooh and Spring will be here soon which means that I get to watch even more birds while I'm lounging in the window!!!!
Man...I tell ya....my life is awesome!!!(except for that part about the dog snoring and my sister Abby picking on me...she's a brat like Jack and Lily.)
Well...I guess that's about it for now. I'll try to get on here more often,but Jack doesn't share the 'puter very well.
See ya later!

Hi. I guess I should introduce myself first.
My name is Pete. I'm the oldest and biggest,but was the runt,of a litter born to a frisky Calico named Charlie. I have a sister named Abby who is a half an hour younger,and a brother named Ben who is a whole hour younger. I also have several more cats and a big ol dog in my family. I love them all very much. I'm pretty shy around most people until I get to know them and I'm terrified of thunderstorms and rain.(Thankfully my dog Honey always protects me during the scary times.)
I was just talking to my brother Ben and my friend Jack(who many of you most likely already know. He's a popular guy.) Anyway...as Jack has already told you all,our good friend Stinky(AKA Skip) just crossed Rainbow Bridge the night of Oct. 12,2007. I am so sad. So I've been talking with Jack and Ben and Jack has advised me that writing a diary can be rather therapeutic. It helps me to talk about various things and to maybe ease my mind a bit by writing. He's a smart guy that Jack. I'm glad that we have him here. And,of course,my lil brother Ben is always very encouraging.
So here I am sharing my thoughts. How long does it take to ease the pain of losing a loved one? Skip wasn't my first friend who passed away. First Alex and then Ornery passed(both 2 yrs ago)...but we weren't nearly as close as Skip and I. It was pretty hard to lose Al and Ornery as they taught me many things about being a good cat...but,as far as the older cats go,Skip was so awesome at looking out for me and he was sort of my mentor. I still look for him in his usual hangouts...and he was the only one that would share his food with me. Boy I just don't know about all of this. The emotions are so strong and I'm so confused because nothing seems right lately. My human Mom seems to know exactly what I'm thinking and feeling and she's been so good with me. But she says to me,"Petey...I know you're sad and that's ok to be sad. It's normal...I don't know how long the sadness will last for you. We're all different in that regard. Only time will tell really. Just when you think you're doing better with it,something will remind you of Skip and it'll make you sad again...but then the time will come that something will again remind you of him and it will make you smile inside. There will always be an empty spot in your heart for those that we've loved and lost...but it gets easier. Never totally goes away...but it does get easier." We just cried together.
Oh boy. It's almost time for breakfast and I am sorta hungry,but there I will be at my dish and there won't be my Skippy buddy right next to me. I don't expect to eat much. Mom is going to talk to our Dr. today about us ALL being so darn sad just to see if there is anything else that we can do to help us through this. I don't think that there is anything else that Mom can do really. She's been through this so many times...and I'm confident that she will keep a very close eye on us all and ifany of us are "off" too much for too long,she'll get us to the Dr. immediately. She's really great like that.
Well,I guess I should go get in my place for breakfast.
I'll try to keep everybody updated on how my life is going and I KNOW that Jack will update his diary with his thoughts about everything and anything.
Purrs and rubs and thank you for listening.
