A.W.O.L.

I havn't felt much like posting this past week even though I had several posts scheduled to go out whilst waiting for my computer to be fixed which I subsequently cancelled.
No my mojo hasn't gone missing and Flo hasn't ebbed and not come back but I have sadly lost my persian Bagpuss.
We got back last Sunday night to find her on the kitchen floor. She had had a massive stroke and though I sat and nursed her for 4 days she sadly didn't make it. I made the decision to have her at home in her familiar surroundings and let her do what she wanted. Wimpy and Wrapper sat with her the whole time and never left her side until the end. Then they wouldn't come in the house for the night and only came back in after breakfast the next morning. Now I'm beset with doubts. If we had not been away, if we had come home sooner would the outcome have been any different? So you pick yourself up and carry on. Then this card arrived from the Vets yesterday and I blubbered all over again. Do they leave footprints on your heart They sure do Large muddy ones!!!!!!!!!!



Computer is now back and 'Wormless' and good to go so normal posts will resume next week.

  2. Oh I am so sorry to hear about Bagpuss but you can't blame yourself. I am sure it would have been even more distressing had you been home but the outcome would have been no different.

    Remember the happy times and try not to dwell on the sad ones (easier said than done, I know!) The card is so wonderful but I am sure it is a painful reminder right now. Animals certainly touch our lives so strongly and the hole they leave behind in our hearts is huge. I can't bear to think of what is will be like without one or both of our two fur-babies.

    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time, I hope you take comfort in knowing that Bagpuss is not suffering any more.

  3. oh Mrs A....I am so sorry to hear your sad news, when things like this happen we always ask ourselves what if so you can't keep thinking like that and blame yourself. animals are like people and are proper members of the family so of course they leave a hole in your heart when they go.
    You keep your chin up Mrs A and I am thinking of you.

  9. I think in your heart, you know that even if you had been home the whole weekend, the same thing would have happened. Heart breaking as it is, it was her time. xxx

  11. You have been in the wars, I hope life is getting a little easier. The pro account for Flickr is not bad really, they usualy give some kind of offer with it,ie. free moo cards or a photo book. I always feel that I have had my money's worth of fun out of it.

  12. Oh I am so very sorry to learn that you have lost your sweet kitty. Your absence and her illness are highly unlikely to have been connected. I'm sure she slipped away peacefully after a long and full life in her home surroundings and I hope your memories of her and your knowledge that she couldn't have been more loved give you some comfort. Warm hugs, Lesley
