Is it possible to take your cat for granted?

When I lost my sweet Tabitha last October, I thought that I would go out of my mind. I cried and cuddled her when she passed. I still miss her and often wonder if I took her presence in my life for granted. She was there and I probably took her for granted when I had her. Whoever said that you don't know what you have until you lose it was right on target! I'm going to try to appreciate my Waffles and Columbus more.

I know I have wondered that myself when I've lost some of my feline companions. I try not to, but life gets in the way so that we may not feel we have appreciated them as much as we might have. Now I try to enjoy my cats as much as I can, but sometimes I find myself overwhelmed with the 23 cats. This is why I'm trying to find homes for some of them. I do love my cats & hand out as many pets as I can. I love up my other cats when I lose one. I think you should appreciate your other babies, kitties live such a short time, 10-20 years (if your lucky 15+.) Sorry for your loss, I'm there with you, & my lover cat is now 9 1/2, & I hope to have him another 9 1/2 yrs.

well , yeah, maybe... that's why when i go home, i see to it that my 2cats are also home, coz they like to stay and play outside, and i cuddle them and sleep with me in my bed... i can't imagine what i will do if i lost one of my cats too... i will cry really hard that's for sure...

When i lost my sweet Skyelar, i thought the world would end... but it won't... i would never take any of my little "darlings" for granted, but i know with my scedule, i don't get to be with them as much as i like... but i know that they loved me and i loved them... and you really can't take them for granted, because they are always on your mind, and in your heart...

My cats won't let me take them for granted. I would be so bored and lonely without them. They have such different personalities. They are fun to watch.
