Sometimes I vanish for a week or so, usually due to the pullings of "real life".

A week ago I had to put my baby, Areba, to sleep.  Areba was my cat; my sweetheart, my comfort, my friend.  I got Areba when she was a baby and I was a mere 12 years old.  She had a long life and just months away from her 19th birthday, she let me know that it was time for her to go.  I held her in my arms, stroked her beautiful fur, kissed her face and told her how much I loved her as the vet injected her and she passed away in my arms.  It was one of the hardest days of my life.  I miss her more than I can say.

Ever since Areba left, Beans (my 9 month old kitten) has been a terror.  It's been a roller coaster of emotions in my house and with Spring coming the "cleaning" bug has hit.  In it all, I'm here, friends!  I haven't forgetten you!

I hope you're all well!

Losing a family member is always hard... : /
My condolences on your loss.
I went through a very similar experience with my dog a few years ago...
Nice to read you though!
Good luck battling the cleaning bug!

The cleaning bug is getting the beginnings of a butt kicking tonight. Sheets, bedding and the bathroom. Tomorrow, the HOUSE!
