I keep looking for the cat.

Ugh. . . and then I remember that he is gone and it hits me like a ton of bricks and my eyes fill with tears. My husband just gave me a CD or DVD or whatever that he had burned from his computer filled with pictures of our two almost 15-year old cats who have passed in the past month. (one literally today) It was nice to see the pictures that he had collected from over the years because they were all ones that I didn't have in my collection though I had seen them as they were taken. Ah and there I did it again. I just looked toward the back door for him. It will take me some time to adjust to my handsome man's absence. He has been such a big part of my life for so long.

@JolietJake we have 3 other cats--the orange baby who is spoiled as hell and the 2 permanent fosters who are pretty aloof (on their own terms). So it will basically be like having 1 cat in our faces, 2 others very occasionally, and 3 making a mess in the litter box. They've all lived here for at least 5 years now so no chance of mistaking their names.
Sorry for your loss. I keep a picture of my cat on my work desk. I have her ashes and cannot throw away the toys she played with, they are reminders I have of the many good years together. Cats our friends and family to us and I think this quote touches on that loss.
