Remembering a Happy Day with Truffles

Six years ago today was Truffles' first full day in her forever home. There's no happier time than the arrival of a new fur baby, and I still remember picking her up at Petco the night before, bringing her home and her settling in like she was always meant to be there.

She was so young, we were going to have so much time together...but that wasn't meant to be.

She's been gone for over 4 years now and I still have a hard time fathoming the little bit of time we had together. Would I have brought her home that day if I'd known the heartbreak to follow? Without a doubt.




And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

The Dance, Garth Brooks

When another living being comes into your life, you never know how long it's going to last, or really what will happen at all, so you just have to appreciate things while they are there. It's a lesson my human learned long ago.

It is good to be in a place where you can appreciate the time she had with you more than you remember the sadness of her leaving. Truffles will always be in your heart. Hugs.

I always tear up when you mention Truffles - it's always hard to lose a cat, but when she's as young as Truffles was, and when it happens as suddenly as it did, it's devastating. Garth Brooks' words couldn't be more purrfect. Hugs to you as you remember your beautiful girl.

Angle Truffles chose you, to be her furrever human, knowing her time was going to be brief. She knew you'd have enough love to keep her alive in your heart for as long as you live, and when she can be with you again.

Angel Truffles, what a beautiful all around kitty you were. The time together may have been short, but it was a wonderful time for you both. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Hugs from all of us at the office for you today.

Angel Truffles is such a beauty. Oh yes, I so understand and feel the same as you about "The Dance". I'm so glad I didn't know either.

I remember you saying how MP also settled right in. All the new cats here hide UTB for 3-4 days. I guess TW is just a scary person.
