A year ago today . . .

I ventured out onto my front porch with a cat carrier and some treats.  For the first time ever, I set about coaxing a cat into a carrier.  A few hours later, after a trip to the vet, Charlie was ours.


I can't believe it's been a year.  I can't believe he's gone.  Sometimes I think I dreamed the whole thing.


Missing him still hurts . . . . a lot.  Especially today.  But it's so worth the 4 months we got to spend with him.  I'd never trade those days for anything.

Big hugs to you! I hope you can heal enough to let another cutie like Charlie in your life again when you're ready.

So the only cure you know, is to take the kitty he is sending you know.

I understand how you still miss him. I have days where I just want my Amos (who has been gone almost two years) to climb into my lap to snuggle.

Charlie was a blessing to you!

Ah I remember when you got Charlie. I chuckled at the fact, if I recall correct, that you were never really a cat person. Look what he did to you....he brought you over to the dark side.

I hope one day your able to find another little friend to warm your lap and your heart. It will be because of Charlie that you will be able too....him suckering you into falling for him, a cat!

Sending you hugs too, Karen. I remember thinking when you got him, "Wow, Karen's going to have cat hair in her house." ;o) I understand how much you miss him.

I'm so sorry the memory of Charlie still hurts so much. I wish I could take the hurt away.

I still miss my childhood dog!! (Beauregard!) Charlie was a very lucky cat - his last days were happy because of you.
