It's 9 days now since my dear sweet Lucy left us but it seems much longer since I held her in my arms for the last time. I miss her so badly all the time but the hardest times are at night, when she came on my lap and we had a nice long cuddle and when I feed the other kitties and get 12 dishes out instead of 11 or feed the kitties chicken (Lucy's favourite).
I fostered Lucy when she was a terrified, hissy spitty little kitten of 12 weeks old. I couldn't touch her at all until she was 3 years old and had to trap her to take her for her annual vet visits. One night I was sitting on the sofa watching tv, when I felt a kittie sitting next to me. When I turned and saw it was Lucy I just couldn't believe my eyes. She soon jumped down but continued to sit by me for just a few minutes each time. One night she stayed longer, gingerly crawled up on to my lap and purred her little head off. It was so wonderful and better than winning the Lottery!! From that time she turned into the most lovable little lap cat and we just adored each other.
I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to thank her dear friends for their lovely messages and gifts.
I received the most beautiful hand-made sympathy card this morning from Tallulah, Tu-Two, Zeke, Kandi and their mommy. It has a beautiful verse and message and a picture of Lucy. When I read it the tears flowed but comforted me at the same time. Thankyou so much from the bottom of my heart!
A big THANKYOU for all the lovely gifts Lucy and I received from our kittie and doggie furriends. We are overwhelmed by them all and appreciate them so very much!

I am glad you got your card from us & you are welcome, we know this is very hard for you with the ache in your heart, the loneliness and sadness...know we are here for you no matter what....I do believe that we will see our babies again and they will show us signs that they are OK, just believe..words of comfort is what we wanted, not tears, of of course it is hard not to cry, I still cry...we know exactly how you are feeling...we still have feelings like that too..
We all wish our sweet babies will be with us forever, but that is not to be, we are all so blessed to have them in our lives no matter how long, they bring nothing but love to us and for that we are better for giving them their homes & loving them too..
If you need to talk I am here for you as are other catster Moms, this is why I am here because of the love and support we have gotten.
We send you our love
QT, Mom Peggy and family
Jen, I am so very sorry,I just found out about your precious Lucy. ( I have been having ongoing and computer problems, plus my dad....I know you understand.)
All I can say is I understand you completely.
It has been a while but I still see Alfie everywhere and they are good memories now that make me grateful to have had him. You will get there, everyone does in their own time.
Love and hugs
