This was from August 13, 2013.
Gracie and Ping joined me in the Dining Room.

This was the day after I had lost my Abby.
We were all lost. This was taken in our last Morning
with Abby in the house. Before we took
her on her final trip to the Vet .
It was a very hard morning.

Letting go
Holding on.
I don't know which is harder.


I did want to add one thing.
One thing the loss of Abby taught me.
She taught me when to let go.
With the loss of Gracie only 6 months
after Abby. I was able to see the
"mistakes" (if they can be called that)
I had made with Abby.
I didn't want to repeat them with Gracie.
Gracie was a far different cat too.
But, I firmly believe that losing
Abby gave me the insight into how to
see things far more clearer.
When you're confronted with this, no matter
what it is not an easy choice to make.


  1. I bet it was a confusing and sad time for all the kitties.

  2. Awww, so heart wrenching when you loose a furbaby.
    Purrs....hugs, too...lots of them.

  3. Such a very sweet picture of the two! xx

  4. I also don't know which is easier, either.
    I still miss my Tillie too.

  5. Both are tough....both are difficult....but at least you know the love goes on and on and on and it's warm and wonderful.

    Hugs, Sammy

  6. Such a sad time for them as well.

  7. Gracie and Ping were whispering how much they loved their Abby
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. What a sad time. This is a lovely picture of Gracie and Ping. I know you miss Abby and Gracie terribly.

    Both are hard but love really does triumph.

  9. How very sweet that they came to sit with you and mourn together-

  10. What a wonderful picture of Gracie and Ping. I think hanging on is only making the parting more difficult when you can't decide what to do. My eyes are full of tears now thinking of the ones that I have had to take to the vets and coming home with an empty carrier.

  11. The decision to let Tungsten go was easy because I knew she could not hold on much longer. Much of the time, she seemed fine. She responded to my touch, she purred, she yawned, she stretched, she watched the other cats. But she wouldn't eat, wouldn't drink; she was dying. The decision to let her go was easy. Living with it forever is hard.

  12. That is such a hard thing to do. to make the final decision. The worst is coming home to a house without that animal. But the kindest thing you can do is to let them go. You have a great day.

  13. I wasn't reading blogs back then. I didn't realize you had lost the 2 so close together- that must have been unbearable.

  14. It's nice when people can take something good out of something bad. So so very sad, but I know you have so many amazing memories.

  15. Yes, that was sure tough on everyone.

  16. WE can imagine how tough the choice was for you on both of them.

  17. What a touching photo. You didn't make mistakes, just lived an experience that you learned from.

  18. We don't know how they know, but our mom's just know when it is time to let us go. And we thank them for it.

  19. Letting go is one of the hardest choices that pet lovers face. {{{HUGS}}}

  21. Letting go is the hardest...that's why we hold on. Purrs.....

  22. What a sweet photo. Deciding when to let go is always difficult. We can only do what we feel is right in that particular situation.

  23. What a sweet photo. Letting go is a very unselfish act.

  24. What a sweet photo. Letting go is a very unselfish act.
