  • Well said, rolig.

  • Chained_bear, you loved and cared for her and gave her a home when she felt most abandoned. Wherever she is now, I am sure that love remains for you (with you) and, possibly, for her too.

  • I wish I could feel that about my dog, rolig. Maybe it's because she had been so horribly treated before arriving at the shelter where we adopted her, but I can only think of her as being lost in a wilderness somewhere with no one to help her. And of course that isn't the case... At any rate I don't see her watching over us, more's the pity.

  • What a fine way to think. That would mean I have a veritable flock of birds looking over me. :-)

  • My condolences, Chained_bear. It may seem weird, but when my amazing cat Nastasya died a few years ago, I somehow felt that she was now in some way able to look out for me just I had looked out for her.

  • I know it was a long time ago. It's just a sad thing. I just lost one of my dogs so I was being sympathetic.

  • Thanks, C_b and ext11, for the sympathy. But this loss occurred a quarter-century ago, so I am no longer grieving, though I am still grateful for this cat's devotion.

  • It is a sad, sad thing to lose a beloved creature. Sorry for your loss, rolig.

    March 12, 2009

  • Awww. I'm sorry.

    March 12, 2009

  • Ah, I see.

  • I lived with, and learned from, Muffin II, many more years than I had with Muffin, his predecessor, who sadly died from injuries sustained in a road accident at the young age of 3. Nevertheless, he also taught me a thing or two.

    March 12, 2009

  • Wiser than Muffin I, then?

    March 12, 2009

  • Prolagus has the right idea. Muffin II was a cat with whom I lived from the age of 10 to 18, and intermittantly after that, until his death at the age of 15 (when I was 25 and in graduate school). Much of what I know about forebearance, loyalty and contemplation I learned from Muffin II.

  • A canine friend?
