Thank you

Her Fluffiness loved to look at her domain through the Study window.

Thank you very much for your prayers and well wishes.  As the initial shock of Victoria's passing is subsiding, I'm once again enjoying the Christmas season. Albeit with a sadness that will linger a long time.

We still talk about Sasha and Storm a lot, our sister kitties from the same litter that lived well into their elderly kitty years.  Someday it will be easy to chat about Victoria's antics without tears falling, too.  We do plan on adopting a kitty who needs a home, for there are so many at shelters just waiting.

Anyone who has been loved by a pet knows the bond between human and animal.  I have found the grief felt from the loss of a beloved pet to be pretty much the same as a human.  It is just the consequences of that loss which is far different.

But I have started once again doing some Christmas crafting.  I've been making quick breads and cookies for the freezer while Christmas music plays in the background. Quite a few cheesy Holiday movies have been viewed again. The season moves so quickly that I don't want to wake up and realize it has gone already.  It is never Christmas or grieving... it is Christmas and grieving... and healing.

Thank you for your prayers and they are still very much needed.

Oh it is good to know that God has been faithful to comfort and that you are, once again, enjoying the season, albeit with some sadness. Your readers will miss the beautiful Victoria, too.

That is one of my favorite photos of Victoria! What a beauty!

I'm glad you'll be adopting a new kitty to love, you're right their are so many who need to be loved.

We are in movie and baking mode here, too!

I live in England and have only recently come across your blog via The Bluebirds are Nesting.

Can I say I am so sorry for your loss. Victoria looks to be a beautiful girl.

We were adopted by a beautiful black and white cat some 3 years ago, bringing with her 5 kittens, 4 daughters and 1 son. Her owners had moved and left her to fend for herself. I called her Flora, a beautiful name for a beautiful girl. Our daughter found homes for all the kittens when they were old enough, and we had Flora speyed and chipped. I can't tell you how much joy she has brought to us, although I am sure you know.

I am sure you will know when you find the one for you, and I am so pleased you feel able to enjoy Christmas and also grieve for Victoria.

((((((HUGS))))) Maybe you can be the Christmas wish come true for a forever home for another fur baby who is waiting at the shelter. We brought our Doofy cat home shortly after our beloved Daisy passed and his silly antics and kitty cuddles helped me heal.

I was in the same place too and lost a dear old cat,but I prayed for a special kitten to come into our lives and we got him from a kitten rescue,he is a delight and although I still think of my old cat and miss him,my new one was an answered prayer.
praying the same for you
God Bless
