Letting Go!

Letting go is always one of the hardest things in life ...

whether it be of a friend that you are no longer close with or it be a death of a family member or friend, or a death of an animal ....

It's a hard thing ...

but it's a part of what we call life!

 

Well my parents had taken Smokey and put him into a little pet carrier and kept food and water and such in there with him  ....

that way if whatever was wrong with him was contagious, he would not spread to the other cats ....

they kept the carrier in their bedroom ....

this is so hard for me to write .....

as the tears fall and I try to write this through the blur of the falling tears,

I try to find the positive ... yet I don't seek it .....

I know that every single one of Gods intentions are good and he makes EVERYTHING happen for a reason!

My dad has gotten rid of Smokey ...

where exactly he has taken him is unclear to me at this point ....

I know the last time one of our cats got sick and was like on his last breath my dad took him "to the farm" (I'm guessing it's the woods)

So I am guessing that is where he took Smokey ...

My dad and brother just walked in and there is no SMOKEY!

My baby is gone!

 

It will take me some time to be used to him being gone ....

he was my baby!

I will always LOVE you and Miss you severely Smokey!

Awww, I'm so sorry, it's so hard to lose a pet. I cried for days when I lost Charlie, and it was so hard when people kept offering to replace her. You can never replace a good pet. I'm thiking of you.
Love Sam xXx

Oh my ..My heart goes soooo out to you. i love and adore animals and I have alot of them, just read my journal... But for you not to be able to say goodbye is heart breaking and just plain cruel. Why couldnt he let you say goodbye. This soo crucial to healing and letting go.. Im sorry for your loss. And I hope you can someday say goodbye in your own way. I make memorials for my pets who die. I painted a flat rock and decorated it and put the birthdate and death date on it and flowers all around it. Things like that. Your story touches me and im so sorry ... My words probably dont help, but know that I know how it feels to lose a pet that means so much to you... Take care.. Christine

I'm so sorry Theresa.  I left a previous comment, not knowing this was the end result.  I was behind on alerts and try to read them in the order you write them.  I do wish your Dad had at least let you say your last goodbyes.....I'm sorry for your loss hon.

Take Care,
