Truffles' 3rd Gotcha Day #CaturdayArt

Three years ago today I brought Truffles home. She's been gone for nearly 14 months now and I still can't fathom that we didn't even get to celebrate a second Gotcha Day together, much less a third.

Our Caturday Art project this week is for her.


For anyone who would like to participate on their blog or social media, Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day is next Sunday, August 28th. Mudpie is taking the lead with our post this year but I'm not sure what she has planned. I've told her she's not allowed to make Mommy cry.

I'm sorry this is such a bittersweet gotcha day for you. :-( Actually my second is coming up in a few days. My human treasures every day with me because she knows anything can happen.

What gorgeous art in remembrance of Truffles. We sure wouldn't count on Mudpie not making you cry on the 28th as you probably cried today when you posted this. The art is gorgeous and befitting of your special angel! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Melissa I understand these days are very hard because they bring up the "what could have been's" and that is really rough. July & August are very hard for me because I have many triggers between Birthdays and Anniversaries and Loss that all come together. Happy & sad & terribly bittersweet. Both of us can only try and remember our good memories and continue to make even better ones with the furry loves we have. But it's still Truffles Gotcha day and she's celebrating with all her friends she has at the Rainbow Bridge including my Abby & Gracie. (hugs)

Beautiful tribute to her, she is always with you catchatwithcarenandcody

Bernadette said...

I'm so sorry Melissa. It's just not fair that your time was so short, but at least every moment was a joy, and every memory.

Cathy Keisha said...

So sad that you had her such a short period of time. She was far too young to run OTRB.

The Island Cats said...

What a beautiful way to remember sweet Truffle. We wish your time with her was longer. Purrs...
