Birthday

It has been a difficult time.  Can't believe that MoMo has been gone for over 2 months.  Today is her birthday, well, adopted birthday, since being a stray when she joined the family we don't really know.  I have been crying on and off, missing her.  Just as well it is a Sunday and I don't have to work.

As some of you may know, MoMo is buried under the poinsettia tree at the back of the garden, near the fountain that she loved to sleep in during summer afternoons.  Since she died, my brother has transformed the dysfunctional fountain into a flowering one in MoMo's memory. 



Sure, one day I will have to leave all these behind as this is not my house.  However, MoMo will always be in my heart and be part of me and my life. 

Many thanks to all the lovely furriends and moms who have been so supportive during the difficult and sad time.  I really appreciate your kindness.  I apologise for not thanking you individually because I get very sad when I go to kitty blogs and cry heaps.  I am crying even now.

Sending you love and hugs. I still cry for Annie sometimes, and it's over a year and a half now. The first year is especially hard, IMO.

Peace and purrs to you.

The flower fountain is lovely. Never feel badly about crying over Momo - I think every human here has kitties they still miss. I know my human still feels a little sad when she thinks about the cat before me, who has been gone for over 10 years.

We understand. The flowering fountain is lovely we are sure MoMo loves it. She will always be with you in your heart.

That is so beautiful. Each cat holds a special place in one's heart. Some just take up more real estate than others. Clearly MoMo was one of those. Our thoughts and purrs.

I love the way the fountain looks right now. It's a great tribute to MoMo! Happy Birthday to you, sweet sisfur! I still miss you everyday and think of you fondly as you surely are having great adventures at the other side of the bridge with Fin. You are a special ladycat and you will always be in my heart.
Many kiittykisses. Your loving LSIF Siena

We're sorry your lovely Momo is unable to be her in person on her gotcha/ birthday. We know how you feel. We have four furries buried here and don't own this house either.

MoMo is alive and well in your heart and in ours.

We think of you often, SS and purr for your heart to be at peace. You have so much to give, we are hoping there is a new kitty in your future, when the time is right. A new one would never take the MoMo's place, and it will never be the same, but it can go a long way to mending a broken heart. We want what is best for you.

Dear Angel Momo's mom, as a cat behaviorist who does a lot of grief counseling, I'd like to tell you that you're doing all the right things. You've created a memorial, a special place for Momo and reached out to a supportive community. Please know the grieving process varies greatly from a few months to a year+. Anniversaries like birthdays and holidays will trigger and release more of the sadness. Two months is still a fresh and raw time and crying is good and healthy. Feel all your feelings. No matter how sad, mad etc. they are not bottomless. At the very bottom of your sadness in your soul is love and peace which will gradually rise up. Try journaling your feelings down privately. It can help. I send (((hugs))) and purrs.

Oui Oui said...

We are sad visiting makes you sad. We are so sorry! We understand if you won't want to.

snowforest said...

We miss MoMo too. We can understand your grief and your pain and can only say that it will get better with time. Time is the biggest healer.. of all wounds of mind and body. Our hooman still remembers and feels sad about the cats he lost.. but over the years the tears have turned into memories, both sad and happy.. that will always remain but not hurt that much..

Sending you many many hugs and purrs :)
