Mom isn't coming home

The mom hasn't been doing so good with her cancer. She was going to bed sooner and sooner and resting more. The dad started taking her to visit their vet lots more than before. On the day where so many make noises and loud banging that scares me the dad took mom away very late at night. Dad tried explaining to me that mom was going to be away for awhile until their vet took care of her. It got longer and longer and dad was very late getting me fed everyday. I went and waited for her by her bed every night at 9 or so, but each time she didn't come home. Dad rearranged the house to get ready for her, and got some new big white boxes in the smelly cat box room, they make noises and he pulls things in and out, then he stopped moving things around. Wow now I have many new things to smell. but I don't when those boxes make noise. Three weeks this goes on and each time dad comes home at different times. He even forgets my meaty bone sometimes in the morning.

Finally he came home very upset and gave me many pets and rubs. We went out to the garden and he sat and watered and I ran around smelling stuff. I went over to him and he gave me lots more pets and told me the mom wasn't coming home any more and some nonsense about someone else de-ticking me. Mom was pretty good at it. He told me she was at the rainbow bridge and would see us later on. Dad is pretty strange sometimes, all the sibs are acting funny too, but it's ok. I''ll wait for her some more and I'm checking on her scent, but her smell is not new anymore.

We're all so sorry for you, Mr. Tom, and the ntire family. We saw the Christmas card and know that your mom is beatuiful inside and outside. It will be very hard to be without her at first and she will always be with you. If you look high above Sandia Peak you'll see at bright new star in the heavens; that your mom looking down over youu all. She's there at the Rainbow Bridge where she'll be waiting to be with you all again. We hope that we will continue to hear from you; perhaps when things settle down after a while. Our love to all of you. We'll howl at the star tonight to tell mom how much you miss her.

Marvin said...

Dear CKC and CKC's Papa,

I am so, so sorry to read this terrible and tragic news.

Kathleen and I emailed each other now and again when I was blogging and I had regarded her as one special internet pal.

She wrote me a very sad email when I deleted Marvin's blog, because she was so upset to not see his face anymore, or his scenery from his home town. I felt terribly guilty!

I wrote back and we became good internet buddies even without Marvin's blog, I sent her some more pictures via email and she was so pleased.

I only emailed her a few weeks ago, and had no reply, so I wondered if all was ok as Kathleen was such a wonderful correspondent.

I am so, so sorry, please accept our condolences which are meant from the bottom of our hearts.

Kathleen truly was a bright star.

The night skies will have a wonderful light looking down on us all.

An extra big hug for you CKC from across the oceans.

I will email soon. Love and much sad light, your friends, Jeannie and Marvin xxxxxxx

I will email in reply to your Papa very soon, thank him for his kind email, which broke my heart.

Dear CKC,

We are sorry to be so late in reading this. We had heard about this sadness from the DWB news. We don't have any words to say. If we could be there, we would put our heads in your dad's lap and stand by him quietly. We know you are sad but we think he is probably sadder. We are glad that both of you had your mom for as long as you did. It's never easy to lose someone or somedog. We hope you are doing better now but we aren't sure you will ever really fill the hole in your hearts. Your mom was an amazing person.
