Cairo, Jesse and autumn already
A beautiful message, capturing the sense of those 'bare ruined choirs' so thoughtfully
I too had a wonderful rescue, her name was Inka. She was black with tawny long legs and small paws who ran like an African cat. She became my daughter’s 1st service dog. They literally grew up together. We lied on the floor for nearly 2 days as Rubi held onto her very best friend pleading, “ please don’t leave me, don’t go don’t die”.
I think with all of the courageous moments Rubi has endured in her health and willingness to survive, loosing that dog was so difficult to witness. But yet, she is ok. And sometimes witnessing anything in our paths can be ok. Love
Heartbroken 💔 hug you
I am so so sorry for your loss of your beloved Cairo. You have shared your love for him and his presence with you with us. We too will miss his lovely companionship with you. Oh such a sad time for you all.
So sorry for your loss. I read Jesse‘s goodbye to Cairo - so moving. Sad but beautiful at the same time. It must have been so hard knowing she won’t be there when you come back this time. Thanks for sending this despite having so many things going on. The Shakespeare sonnet also is truly beautiful.
Of this pain I am all too familiar for we lost 2 sacred Kitties one month before the pandemic was called... the third - beloved 20 year old Tasha August 2022. A very hard last 3 years. Especially when The General and I settle in for an evening binge watching whatever series we've attached ourselves to for then it was each kittie had her space carved out: one on the ottoman, one next to me, one on the General's chest. The room has been an empty space since the 3 left us for the greater Universe. I see Cairo happily greeted by all the kittie Spirits who have been waiting for her return. Now they happily play with strings of Stars, floating about in an energy field the mortal world knows nothing about. Happy little Souls waving "so long... fare thee well oh great World". It is we the mortal world that misses them the most. For there is no replacement for perr-fect Love. So let yourself grieve (As a fellow Capricorn I know only too well how difficult this emotion is and yet, once we let the first tear drop, the voice quiver, the waters from within will rush forward in an awakening of purified emotion. The cleansing begins.)... do whatever it is to bring lightness to your nights, and Light into your days. Looking forward to reading Jesse's poem...
Surely Cairo’s days were filled with everything she loved. If only this could be said for the rest of us.
Love of Cats and Children,
Love of Words and Song,
Love of Stories and Poetry,
There is a theme here…
💙 Sending Love.
Cairo was another 'child' in your flock. Such a precious, beautiful soul has left the Earth but never leaves your heart. Peace and love and safe travels.

Simply the most heartbreaking of moments.
A spectacular being. A quiet and steady love.
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Patti. I lost my Sammy when he was 18 1/2 (I met him when he was 5 hours old). I found comfort in knowing how much love he was given and how much he enriched my life. I hope the same for you.
