Last night, just before midnight, my cat Leo passed away.
It’s too difficult for me to write an entry about him. He was my first cat ever, my first pet on my own, he moved with me all over the place, has been a constant in almost 15 years of my life.
I am grateful his death was at home, in peace, with me right beside him for the last hours.
His last conscious gesture was to purr.
He is a golden soul, and I will remember him all my life. I will look for him the second I get to heaven myself.
Until then, he is in the loving care of my friends and family in Heaven. I want to express my eternal gratitude to them for helping us all through this, a process which can be so incredibly hard.
Even when you know they’re in heaven, even when you know they will visit, the absence a loved one leaves in your life when they die is something better felt than described.
I am going to take a little more of a break before regular, scheduled blogging resumes. Thank you for your understanding and compassion.
