Why I’ve been so quiet lately

Hey guys, sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I feel like I should tell you why.

Unfortunately, in April we got the news that our sweet little baby Saar was really ill, she had heart problems and would only live a few more weeks if her medication didn’t help, and if the meds did work, it would only be a few more months maybe if we were lucky a year. A week and a day later, on Good Friday, our sweet angel baby Saar died, even though her medication DID work and she was feeling so much better the day before she died. She died in the morning, as soon as we went downstairs to get her breakfast. She died while I was petting her.

I’m really heartbroken and I’m still adjusting to being a cat-mum of two. Saar was only in our live’s for 4 months, but she made a really big impact on us. I spend the last week caring for her nearly 24/7. As soon as I woke up I went downstairs to lay on the couch with her, sleeping only 4 hours a night. Every 20 minutes I would lay on the floor to feed her food with a spoon, giving her medication, cleaning her as she didn’t clean herself anymore, she had issues with her bowl-movement and I helped her with that too. Yes, I did absolutely EVERYTHING to make her feel better. Honestly, everything. She lost a lot of weight, but she was really loved, and quite happy. It’s better for her to not be with us anymore, because I don’t want her to suffer anymore, but that doesn’t make the pain any less.

As you may know, my cats are like my children, which might be ridiculous to you, but I love them so much and not having Saar screaming at me anymore hurts my heart. I might be a little quiet for a little while, because I don’t really feel like writing anything fun when I just lost her. It might be a few more days, but it might be two more weeks, I’m not sure when I will be back. Just know that I haven’t just quit my blog, I just need to feel more at peace with Saar’s passing.

Give your pet a big hug from me today! ♥

  1. So sorry to hear about this. I don’t think it is at all ridiculous that you think of them as your children. Sending good thoughts and a virtual hug your way.
