Today, maybe I'm a little weary...but I miss Snakes so much just watching the Precious Cat video I made got me all teary-eyed. It's been three years since my beautiful lady went to Heaven. I miss you, Snakes.
Hi, it's Rachael. I'm posting this here because I know that some of you will find it relevant...especially those who have lost a precious furry family member.
Last week was a rough week for me. It was one of those sick-of-winter-nothing-is-going-right kind of things. I have a long commute home and, after days of bleak winter scenery, there was a beautiful sun shower through the clouds as I rounded the top of a mountain bend on the interstate. The light streamed down from multiple pores in the cloud. When I was little, Mom used to tell me that it was God taking all the souls to Heaven that had passed that day. After Snakes passed, I decided that, when I saw a scene like that, I'd say, "Hi, Snakes!" So I did.
Just before I rounded the bend, I noticed that the bottom portion of the cloud expanse looked like the back view of a cat lying down, with paws tucked under.
I am usually good about knowing the exact minute of the day it is, but that week was so bad I wasn't even sure what day it was. I did call my best friend Lindsey to tell her about it. A few days passed and I leapt up from the table to find my call log in my phone. I called Lindsey on the exact day I saw this. It turns out, it was the exact two-year anniversary of Snakes's passing (2/19.)
