The household has been unsettled since Monday.

There has been a lot of this:

I'm filling up again. Poor creatures.

It has been very similar in my household since Miss Mouse left us, except my once very quiet Zoey who rarely meowed, now follows me around meowing constantly.

They know and they fell it quite deeply.

They will be missing her. I know how much my cats love our two old dogs.

John said...

She was there before all of them were, and accepted them. She was a good keeper-of-cat-secrets.

Noelle the dreamer said...

Oh dear, Rachel! It seems everyone misses their little friend very much!
Sending lots of hugs and much love to all!

Marcheline said...

Yes, because "this" is the only thing that helps. Join in!

Extra cuddles and treats are obviously needed (for the humans too!!)
We still miss our dogs, although we lost both of them in the 90s!!

Just like with people, loss makes us all realise what is important.

Look at how they comfort each other! That is to me a comfort. These things don't ever really come to pass, we all just carry on regardless.

Been there and seen 'missed'. The 'searching' saddened me particularly. Really wished I had been able to explain to the dog where his beloved sparring partner the cat had gone, and why. Perhaps it was a maternal, nurturing thing but I so wanted to make things better for my puzzled dog.

Our vet tells us that animals live in the here-and-now, and don't fear that final mysterious journey as we do. That's fine for the departed one but the ones left behind certainly are affected by the loss of a companion. I guess, as with most things, it will get easier.

I'm still welling up looking at her photo in the side bar.

Your photos exactly express how it feels. Very much missed, just as she was loved.

Yes,cosy snoozes do help when we sense an air of "something-not-quite-right."
We'll ask Dinah for an extra treat, to show solidarity.

The comfort they're giving to each other can be a comfort to you, poignant as it may be. Thank you
for these beautiful photos. You've
all been in my thoughts.

How interesting. So glad that you've all got others to snuggle up with.

zephyr said...

One of my boys mourned for a month after his buddy passed. And then began following me everywhere.

Jen said...

Cutest pictures ever!!! Hope you are finding some warmth and coziness to0.

Sarah said...

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

And you're there too , hugging them all .

June said...

One of the pack/pride members disappears: reinforce the existing bonds.
Here, on the other hand, Angus has come into his own and is dancing.

Toffeeapple said...

Oh, so sad! Poor little things, you too.

Floridagirl said...

How amazing that they're comforting each other. It's a tight pack/pride.
