I do think a lot about the fact that I lost Poof a long 17 years ago.  Hardly seems possible.  She was 15 and a half when I finally had to let her go.  I've never had one live much past 15, although there were many that I didn't really know their age.  I know I couldn't have been with Poof much longer.  She'd be 32 years old now.  I'd still give anything to see her happy and healthy again, so, I have to see her through the others I take care of.  John

I am so sorry Tim. I think Titan looks like ^Leo^ some. :)

BUT, they were old and thus lived a good life, as opposed them being young. I know that is useless on the hurt, it has always been useless for me, but over time I realize it more. It is funny, the other night I was thinking about ^Hamlet^ and finding it hard to imagine it has been 10 years since I lost him. I always was so sad and felt it unfair that we was only 12. I doubt he would be with me now if he had not left then, he would be 22 or 23. But I never really thought of that before. They are just with you and you never imagine life without them. But it happens, and it sucks. I have been trying to mentally prepare myself since Orion and Nova will be 15 next year and Andie and Apollo will be 14. I do noit think it is possible to detach yourself and have it not affect you. :/


Not that it helps, but I am happy you gave them a long life. :)


Merry Christmas

I'm so very sorry Tim.  There are no words of course, to stop the pain, but you can know this.  You made Titan's and Mercy's lives as perfect as possible and right up to their very last day here, they knew they were loved and cared for.  The more you take care of, the more you know loss.  Love is not like money, where there's only so much to go around.  Love is infinite and no matter how many furkids we take care of, every one of them is loved infinitely.  Of course, this makes the pain of loss infinite, but making their lives as happy as possible up to the very last day they can be with us, is why we do it, and why we always will.  John
