|I came late to this thread also. Been EXTRA busy at work, then had computer problems and now problems with my right hand and foot. All of us on CATSTER understand your grief and sense of loss. I just lost my handsome Maine Coon mix, Louis Armstrong back in April. He had just made five years old, and I came home from work one day and he was on the sofa, I thought he was sleeping, and when I touched him he was stiff. I did not know Maine Coons can have a heart defect that can take them at ages 5-6. Two weeks to the day after I lost Louie a friend presented me with a TINY, fluffy black kitten (a female) her son had rescued out of a mud puddle. She has made me laugh every day, and helped me to heal.
As others have said, one day another cat will come into your life, not to take Baybee's place, but to make their own place in your heart and home. I lost four cats at one time when Hurricane Katrina came through the New Orleans area.
I know I will see all my beloved pets one day when we are reunited, along with my parents and other family and friends. I belive there is an "Animal Heaven", God created so many wonderful creatures, certainly they have a life after death also, and to make humans happy as well.
Sending Purrs and Soft Paw Pats,
The New Orleans Kitties
