Different Topic

Kitties, this is the Katie Mom and not Katie.  Admiral decided to dictate a blog from OTRB for me tonight and so I was over there  just now re-reading what she said and shared tonight.

While there, I noticed in her blog feature that she has at the bottom of the blog, namely a random three blogs suggested to read.  One of the suggested three blogs was from September 2011.  She had to go to the hospital and stay quite a while. She was down to 6 pounds.and sickly  (She passed in December 2011).

Admiral had said in that blog that she needed her furriends very much because she was in the hospital and requested/wanted prayers and purrs that she, the Admiral not be afraid.  She and I  really meant that. But I was afraid for her too.   The idea of fear in any of my kitties is heartbreaking.  So she asked for you all's help. And the outpouring of love and support she was given so quickly made me  well up with leaky eyes this evening after reading that blog and it's responses so many years later.

I surely said it when Admiral returned to me later, but even now all these years after the fact....thank you from my heart.

Dearest Carole,
Yes, our fur babies can cause us great joy and tremendous grief at times.
Loosing them is so rough and I almost certainly believe that my unexpected paralysis had something to do with losing my most favorite fur baby of all. We rescued here from Acapulco, she flew home with us, the sweetest thing ever. We did not know she was pregnant but we kept all five of her babies. WHY oh why did she disappear after nine month?! My guess is that she got kidnapped, because of her good looks and her extreme silky fur. I was so heart broken... Rare auto immune disease they called it but only God knows. And we prayed that my girl is still alive somewhere. She never could have more babies but we wanted to give her love and a good life.
You can read about her here: http://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2010/09/telling-you-tale-of-our-4-feline-girls.html
It sure feels good to be amongst like minded people that care and grief about their fur babies...
Hugs,
Mariette

Each of us has that fear within our hearts and I suspect each of us has had to reach out and ask for prayers and purrs to help. It is good to have that support of those who truly know and understand. WE sure do miss Admiral.
