My Sweet Tuxedo Boy #TBT
If you're anything like me, you can recite the Gotcha Days and Rainbow Bridge Days of each beloved pet without second thought, but dates regarding the humans in your life require a bit more brain power.
July 7th has become the most dreaded day of the year for me (the date I lost both Tara and Truffles) but for 3 years in a row in the late '90s January 8th was a date I would've been happy to banish from the calendar forever.
On that date in 1999 I lost my Uncle Bob who was like a second father to me, in 1998 an ice storm struck the northeast and we were without power and bailing water from the basement for days, and on January 8, 1997 my beautiful tuxedo boy Sebastian went to the Bridge.
20 years ago last Sunday.
He was a neighborhood cat who had been neglected by his various owners through the years, but he had a happy "senior citizenhood" with my family.
I miss you, sweet boy. I hope you've been taking care of all my little girls who've gone on to join you.
