Hankies at the ready.

Choices

I look for you every morning,
Caught between hope and dispair

Are you still there?
Or have you passed,

Peacefully in the night,
Relieving me
Of that terrible right.

When will it be your time.
To leave me?
Shall I let you be?

Choices.

The very though makes me recoil,

Why should I be the one!

To shuffle you off
This mortal coil?

If I could keep you pain free,
I believe I can see,

Selfishly keeping you with me.

When you look at me with pleading eye,
I cannot tell,
If you wish to die.

Or mearly trying to stay by my side,
Hoping Nature will decide.

I pray that at the end of life,
Your passing is without strife.

If I need to help you complete
The task,

I have but one thing to ask.

Remember that I love you true,
This is the kindest thing I may do.

And as I hold you in my arm,
Keeping your spirit ever from harm.

Know that I, with you was blest.
You bring out in me, the very best.

Sleep softly now my little one,
Now that the deed is done.

In my heart you will always dwell,
I will remember a life lived well.

Now will my heart break,
Now will my arms ache.

Until some other day,
Another comes to stay.

Thoughts from you,
From the Other Side,

Bid me open my arms
Wide.

Inspired in part  y the sads this week, and the lovely family who so elequently schooled thier social website " friends"..and cause, been there. I held my Siamese too long. She was more than ready to go.

my Maine Coon, passed in her sleep a week to the day of her beloved companion. I had them both cremated, and they keep me company in my sewing room. I believe that when I go, I want all my kittehs to be interred with me. One on my head, one or gwo on my feet..one snuggled up to my side....:) ah, now that is heaven.

I'm pretty sure that's every US holiday.  If you want the drunker ones, you want 4th of July, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and Labor Day.

New Year's Eve, Easter,  Mother's Day, Father's Day, First Day of Spring, First Day of Summer, and my birfday!  You forgot those......  :D

Veteran's Day, Flag Day, D-Day, National Pancake Day, International Talk-Like-A-Pirate Day, National Pancake Day, International Underwear-On-Head Day... uhh... now?

Let's not forget that this Tuesday is Mardi Gras!
[www.catster.com image 200x278]

How could I forget Mardi Gras?!!

Oh, yeah. "Mardi Gras" = that thing I don't know what it's about or how it started or anything, but involves booze, beads and boobs. This tells me it is probably a religious holiday of some sort. Party on, religious dudes and dudettes. You are totally forgiven*

*depending on religion and mood of attendant deity - YMMV

Yes, King Cake is integral along with the booze, beads, booze, parades, booze, food, booze, boobs, booze, etc....

maynerdkitty: My morning so far: Woke up at four and had to feed Li-Ion and Max so they would stop walking on me and patting my face to make sure I was OK. Fed all the critters and read enough Caturday to find that Sir Dragon is getting better. Yeah!
I began working on the guest bath and finishing up a few things. Called my friend in Ill. who is getting an ice storm right now. I sat out on the porch where it is nice and warm this morning. While we were on the phone I saw Cassie bring up a fat lizard, she was not hurting it, just playing catch and release. King George saw the lizard and ran over while calling to Queen Freddy to follow. He took the lizard from between Cassie's paws and handed it off to Freddy. She took it and slammed it on the ground twice then ran off to eat it with George following. They move up to the porch and George jumped up to the railing to crow about his skill as a hunter/thief. Freddy was walking around on the porch making the "waaalk waaalk" call.
Suddenly George  got down and led Freddy down the steps and into the chicken tractor. Freddy got on her nest and the other hens lined up out the door to wait. (there are three nests but they only lay in one of them) . George stood guard outside and waited for her. Five minutes later I heard the "I just laid an egg" song with George singing along to announce his queens success.
I went back to work on the house and came out to find this in the living room:
[img.fark.net image 640x361]
I shooshed her out and told her to stay with George, she is the one hen that will go off by herself and I am afraid she will be hawk food if she won't listen to the rooster and stay with the group.
Oma Cassie was watching something in the front yard and I saw the big doe and her yearling run away to the back field. I got the camera but they bounced away waving their longish white tails in the air and I could not get their picture.
Hope the rest of the day goes as nice as this morning.


That sounds like a delightful day!!!!!  :D

Wow e wow tigerose.  Not only the poesy, grandly exquisite as always, but wish to take ashes of loved cats along.  She who used to come care for They Who Owned Us while she lived, Clara Longano KB8DCH SK, arranged for that when her time came. She had kin who cared for those living she left behind; we could've taken a few in but weren't requested to.

My dearest friends, it is my great pleasure to inform you that the one and only Dragon seems to be continuing to improve rapidly - he has pretty much returned to his normal litter box behavior (urinating a normal amount, no straining, albeit still a little more pinkish-red tinged than I would like), eating well, and sleeping comfortably as opposed to wandering restlessly.

I attribute his recovery as much to the power of Caturday as I do to his veterinary care. Thank you all so much from both of us, from the bottom of our hearts!!!!

I know. Aimed at others, whose experiences are fresher and so very painful. I still do not understand those who will deride another person's grief. I do believe they are broken, to not understand that these who we hold close to our hearts, wil be sorely missed. And that our souls will need time to heal. I think the term "heart sick" applies here.
