She is gone. Little Abby is gone now.

I am sad. Beyond sad.

Last night, I put her food bowls in the dishwasher. Now the floor is bare. This morning I cried when I saw that space where her bowls should be.

This morning’s sunshine is empty without a cat sleeping in it. I cry to see it without her there.

All her blankets are in the washing machine now. Later, they will be folded and put away in the closet.

I think I will keep her little cat bed in my office for a while. I need to see it there. Even if it makes me cry.

For nearly 19 years, she was my cat and I was her person. I miss her soft fur and her loud purring.

I just miss her.

Please forgive me if I take a few days. I’ll be back soon. I just want to be sad for a little while.


  1. I'm so sorry! :'(
    There are no words at a time like this. {{HUG}}
    I truly believe that these animals we love so much do go to Heaven. God loves them and cares for them as much as we do. She is safe. Praying for comfort for your heart as you remember her always.

  2. Oh, that's so sad. If you have been together for that long it's just really hard and I can imagine you miss her terribly. Thinking of you ... ♥

  3. I am so sorry. {{{HUGS}}}

  4. I've been following your blog and wonderful art for a while now, and I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am. We just lost our dog after 15 years so I know how you feel. They are family and will be dearly missed.

  5. Oh Sue, I am so sorry! 19 years are such a very, very long time. Abby must have been a very happy cat who loved it to live with you for so long. I'm thinking of you ...


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
You just made my day!!
