Cissy

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.

I'm so sorry.

Thanks Dru. It's really difficult to explain the attachment I had to this cat ... I'm mourning just about as much as I did with Devlin.

I'm so very sorry!!! I also totally understand. I barely got a passing I'm sorry from most people (not you :)when I lost the little stray kitten to pneumonia - some people will never understand how attached some of us get. Tell your friend how sorry we are for her loss too!

Wow, I'm so sorry you guys. I've never met Cissy or your cat, but I can honestly say I got teary-eyed that they found her the way they did. They really are like children - and no one wants to get that phone call.

I hope you are able to maintain your friendship - they are so important these days.
