Stacking the Shelves (259)

Stacking the Shelves

It’s a short stack this week, and that’s probably a good thing, because this has been the week from hell.

Mellie-cat, our very own Clown Princess, had to be put to sleep on Thursday. She was 17 1/2 years old, and I watched her being born. The docs discovered a tumor at the base of her heart, and her lungs were filling up with fluid. It was just her time. She ran through all the extra lives left to her when her daddy-cat, mommy-cat and sister went on before her. And now she is at peace and with them. We’re all heartbroken, even poor Freddie who can’t figure out where his aunty-Mellie has gone.

And as you read this, the movers will be putting our stuff on a truck and taking it about three miles away to our new house. One chapter has ended, and another is beginning.

  1. Sorry for your loss. I shed a few tears Cats are so important in our lives. It does help knowing they have good lives when living with us.

  2. I’m so very sorry about Mellie. When cats are such a big part of our lives–and how can they be anything but–they leave such holes in our hearts when they’re gone.

  3. It’s always so hard to say goodbye to a much-loved animal that has been part of your life for so long. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss.

  4. Mellie’s coat was beautiful! I love long-hair cats. I’m so sorry for your loss, Marlene. Keep an eye on Freddie, because cats grieve too. When our Tigger died, Tabitha meowed and wandered the house for two weeks looking for him and had stopped eating. I wasn’t ready to adopt another one, but Tabitha needed the companionship. She came from a colony of feral cats, so she was used to being around other cats. Anyway, we did adopt another one and that made all the difference in the world to Tabitha. {{{Hugs}}}
