I just wanted to thank you all for your support, love and comments on my last blog about losing our Doofy cat. I wanted to reply to everyone individually, but I thought this might be better. You all have touched my heart so very deeply and thank you for understanding that Doofy was not "just a cat", but a very valued member of our family and was like one of our kids.
It has been rough not having him here but I was finally brave enough to go see his grave today. Not going to lie, it hurt and I had to fight the urge to cry again. I did not fall asleep until around 6 this morning after my husband got home from work and they I was up by 10:30 a.m.. I miss having him cuddle up next to me to sleep.
Yesterday Jeff took me into town to get me out of the house for a bit and we found a beautiful rose bush. We are going to plant it at the top of our front stair walkway in the front yard so that it greets you every time you walk up the stairs. It is my memorial to Doofy. It will help me to smile and remember the good times with him, just as the other flowers in our yard that were given to us by loved ones who have now passed away do.
Caesar is still looking for Doofy but I have noticed that Midgey is kind of stepping in and becoming Caesar's buddy, sticking close to him like Doofy did. I think Midgey knows that Caesar is sad and needs a friend right now. Patches is spending more and more time with me and following me everywhere. She wants to be near me at all times during the day and then had Midgey take over the night shift. Patches spends about half the day in my lap and Midgey spends the night on the bed with me.
Be blessed all and thank you again!
