Happy 8th Gotcha Day, Angel Truffles!

Eight years ago today I adopted Truffles. There's no happier day than the day a new fur baby arrives, and I still remember picking her up at Petco, 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.

Would I have brought her home that day if I'd known the heartbreak to follow? Without a doubt. In our short two years together she left me with memories that will last a lifetime.


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

Hugs and purrs, Truffles was such a beauty. The song says it perfectly. I understand as I've also had those too short times.

We send you strength and whisker kisses. It is always tough to lose a furbaby, but Truffles left far too soon!
