Hug Your Cat Day 2014: Meetings & Partings


Life is made up of meetings and partings. That is the way of it. 
-- Kermit, Muppet Christmas Carol

In honor of Hug Your Cat Day 2014, I'm featuring the last photo taken of Tara and I together, and the first taken with Truffles.

This picture was taken on Christmas Eve 2012. I knew it would be our final Christmas together and it was a bittersweet day. Six months later she was gone. What I wouldn't give to hold her in my arms one more time.


This one was taken on a much happier day...this is the very first time I held Truffles on the day that I adopted her. It was obviously love at first sight, and that love continues to grow every single day.

I echo your feelings about holding our beloved RB kitties one more time. We will one day, I believe. Abby was the only one who really let me hold her for any length of time. So I truly miss that. I am so glad you have Truffles to help heal the ache of the loss of Tara.

Happy Hug Your Cat Day!

Poor Truffles. I know how it is playing second fiddle to the cat who came before. Nicky was TW’s “snuggle bunny” of a cat. What she wouldn’t do to hug him again. She’s all choked up (again) typing this. She couldn’t pick him up cos he weighted 22 1/2 lbs.
