It feels so wrong to start a blog post without writing "Hey everybody, it's Truffles!"
I hadn't planned on blogging this weekend, but I had to take a moment to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the support I have received over this past week. The pain has been unimaginable, and I don't know what I would have done without the love, support, and sympathy from everyone who taken the time to write to me to say how much my precious little angel meant to them. Truly, if love could have saved her, she would have lived forever.
Truffles was so protective of me. If I wasn't in the room with her she would call out for me. Over the past year with my parents' illnesses she would comfort me. I have a feeling she's watching over me right now, worrying about me because I'm crying so much. She was the sweetest cat *ever* and I know that leaving me to face life without her broke her heart.
She will continue to be a HUGE part of this blog. I think writing about her is going to be the only way I'm going to get through this. I still have several of her interviews yet to run and pictures that haven't been seen. I want to share the incredible acts of kindness I've been shown and do more research into the horrible disease that took her from me way too soon.
My friend Leslie Goodwin, who wrote the wonderful book Cat Skills, will be guest posting for a couple days next week on the grieving process, in order to give me a little more time. I'm not ready to dive back in just yet.
I have no doubt that Tara sent Truffles to me, and I've asked Truffles to let me know who she chooses as her successor when she feels that I'm ready.
One thing is for sure...they will have some mighty big paws to fill.
