Still missing my Snugglebunny!!!

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Tomorrow, December 17 will be one year since my sweet snugglebunny died. He was the first real pet I ever had. I never expected he would get into my heart the way he did! But he did and I am glad!! I still catch myself looking for his sweet face when he would lie on his side watching us in the kitchen. He knew we would shoo him out of the kitchen (I have a real problem with litter paws on my counter tops and table. And yes, I know when I wasn't looking what was probably going on!!) so he would patiently wait for us at the threshold where the living room meets the kitchen. When I finished my workouts, I would slowly walk up the steps from my basement and stop about 5 or 6 steps from the top, stretch out on the stairs resting my elbows on the living room floor and he would come racing over from wherever he was lounging and we would have a snuggle fest!! I miss tripping over him, I miss his constantly purring, I miss how he always wanted my attention-- let's face it -- I miss my snugglebunny!!!

And one day down the road when my heart is ready, I will adopt another precious snugglebunny from a shelter and learn to love all of his or her sweet quirks!!

In the meantime if you have enough tissues around, you can check out my blog from last year when our family said goodbye to who WE think was the coolest cat ever to grace our planet!!

    I know how you feel. Last month, I balled on the one-year anniversary of losing Cally. Sometimes I still expect to hear him meowing when I pull into the driveway (that cry could pierce any number of closed doors & windows!) or knock over the cup when he wanted a drink from the bathroom faucet.

    We adopted another cat quickly after we lost him. I will say that Coda has some of the same quirks - playing fetch, licking my face in the middle of the night, pawing at the door like a madman - that Cally had. Even though he'll never fill that Cally-shaped hole in my heart, Coda's sweet personality helped DD, our other kitty & I deal with our loss. When the time comes, I hope you find another special kitty. That's the great thing about animals from shelters - they often rescue us as much as we rescue them!

    Your other blog made me cry. I too have lost pets, and right now we have 4 cats and 2 dogs.

    3 of the cats are rescued and 1 dog. I would have a hundred if we could...we live in town and there is a limit.

    I hope someday soon, your heart will be ready for another kittie..they are such wonderful pets.

    I read the other blog and I could not focus at the end as I was teared up. I volunteer at a shelter and just came home after spending time with puppies. I understand how hard it is to lose a baby....God bless him and hope u continue to cherish his memories.

    Take care
