Remembering My Precious Angels


Today is the third anniversary of the day my baby girl Truffles flew off to the bridge, and the fifth anniversary of the day her big sister Tara paved the way before her. It goes without saying this is the hardest day of the year for me. This year I've tried not to dwell on the anniversary approaching as much as I have in previous years, but that doesn't mean the pain has lessened in any way. Comprehending the tragic set of circumstances that took Truffles from me far before her time is something I will always struggle with, and most likely something I will never be able to accept. She deserved so much more from life.

In honor of my precious girls, please give your own fur babies a little something special today. Maybe an extra hug or kiss, a few more minutes of play or cuddle time, extra treats wouldn't hurt either.

Our time together is so fleeting; their fragile lives all too short. Never miss an opportunity to show them how much they're loved.

Mom and dad know all too well just how painful this can be and how long it can last. We're right there with you. I'll make sure I get lots of extra hugs and snuggles today.

Each of our fur babies are unique in their own way and that's why those holes in our heart can never be mended... They live on forever in our cherished memories. *Hugs* and prayers for you today as your heart continues to try to heal. Giving my babies extra love and care today in honor of yours.

What a beautiful tribute to your two lovely girls. So deeply missed. I wish I had some sage advice or wisdom to impart, but I am still searching for answers related to losing Abby and now my Dad. I've come to some conclusions but it's not sufficient. I still would like to know why I am struggling so much with the absence of what I loved so dearly. I don't know. Although I know one thing can not replace another, I am so glad your gorgeous Mudpie is there to give you lots of cuddles and love and that you in turn give that back to her as a way of sharing your love for both Tara and Truffles. Thinking of you.

Sending you hugs and purrs! I adore the cats we have now, and still remember the ones who left in the past him left pawprints all over my heart. Each new kitty finds a way to work themselves into the breaks and fill them to overflowing. So thrilled you have Mudpie, as Angel Truffles certainly sent you a fine feline....

Thinking of you today and my heart is with you. We fiddle our Cooper (puppy) every day and he goes everywhere with us except work. He is not just a pretty but our child and still feels like we don't spend enough time with him.

Melissa, I have been thinking about you today. Your sweet Tara and Truffles were so very blessed to have you, and they will always be with you. Many, many hugs to you today.

Cathy Keisha said...

Sending comforting purrz. Let's see: I didn't get extra treats or lunch cos the peeps went out and left me. They didn't even kiss me goodbye since they read they weren't supposed to or some rot.

Katie and The Katz said...

Lots of hugs, purrs and extra kitty kisses fur you and Mudpie. Especially from Katie Kat who am wanting lots of extra loves today. Don't know if Mom got to meet Tara, she remembers Truffles very much and am missing her too.
Purrz and love nips from Katie Kat.

Loving purrs for you, Miss Melissa. Mom can sympathize. Her kitty before me went OTRB way before his time and unexpectedly. She still wonders if there is something she could've done to change the outcome. She lit a candle on the anniversary of his passing for the first few years to give her comfort. Do you light a candle for your kitties, too? Hugs. -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews
