Oh Those Memories

We all have them, good or bad, and mine revolves around those furbabies I've rescued. Spunky was a total hoot. His first encounter with a dog was at 5 weeks, or at least that was my impression as he wasn't completely weaned and took to my virgin Golden Retriever Gracie as if she were his mom. He proceeded to entertain me and the pups as well as helping to raise two of them, first Sophie then Mykey. Talk about photo ops, oh yeah I got so many shots of their antics and loads of giggles. I did a collage of him, in the middle of the shot he was perhaps 5 weeks according to the vet, then the one in the lower left he is 16, I never got any shots of him at 17, he wasn't feeling so good anymore. They were the reason I hated when I had to leave to go to work.

Well, they are like babies right. My little friend's little sister was narrating a story today. It goes like this..na na na na na na na..she was pretty serious for a one and a half year old. I gave a solemn hearing to her serious thinking you know.

Such a beautiful cat and long lived too. As you had him so young I don't expect he remembered anything but being loved by you. I had a kitten for a short while when I used to go to work every day but in the end I gave him to my cousin. I always felt sad about that.

I guess most of us have our share of precious memories of our furbabies. Mine would never leave my side when I was bedridden for months.. with very little hope of walking again. She would be my companion, guard and guardian angel. She would nudge me and encourage me to get up and walk until I really did.

My condolences @jaboUK believe me I know exactly how that hurt. I've been through it many times and it's never easy and I always mourn. Sometimes it's like losing a parent, I have no kids so I could not relate to losing a child.
