Thank you for praying for Cissy's return, but I am sorry to tell you that Cissy was found by the shelter - or I should say her body was found, two streets over from her home. We found out on Friday night. I don't know how my heart could be broken over the passing of a cat that I never saw, never touched, never heard her purr - but it is. I spent most of Friday evening and Saturday crying - so much so that I had to leave work on Saturday. I feel as if I have lost one of my own furbabies. A part of it is the fact that I know that my relationship with her owner, Vickie, will change. I used to look forward to Friday nights, hurry home from work on Saturday - because that meant that I would be "talking" to Vickie (through Cissy) at our favorite MyPetSpace (what we refer to the pages of our pets) hangout called The Rock Bottom Bar and Grill - yeah, we're strange. Now, I don't know. I also became caught up in the make-believe world of being married and having children (yeah, Aidan and Cissy were "parents") - something that I never had - a partnership. Now that's gone too. Aidan and Cissy were "married" for just a little over 6 months, and it was the happiest 6 months I've had in a long time. So anyway, that's the follow-up on little Cissy - oh, and she died exactly 1 month before her 4th birthday.
