Two of the blogs I follow were so sad today. Your Daily Cute and Diary of a Foster Cat both lost kitties today. I cried as I read both of the stories. Somehow when I read of kitties passing I always think of the two that I have lost. The pain just bubbles up out of nowhere. It has been 13 years since Button went to the Rainbow Bridge, and I can honestly say the pain is still as raw as it was when it happened. Dusty joined Button at the Rainbow Bridge almost 4 years ago. I miss his sweet, gentle ways.
I know death happens. Somehow I guess the death of our fur babies keeps our hearts soft. I know it would be very easy to become hard-hearted in today's world. I will never understand how a human being can be so cruel and heartless as to hurt an innocent little animal, but I know it happens. It kind of scares me to think what our world is becoming. So I guess my hope is that I continue to cry when I read these things, because I don't want my heart to get hard.
Today I am just going to post some of my favorite pictures of Button and Dusty. They were best friends and when Button passed away, Dusty cried for months, looking for her everywhere. I don't think he ever got over losing her.
This was right after I got Dusty. Button was not sure about him, but he was growing on her.
They were always together. If one got up, the other would follow. They were the best cats.
But I wish they were still with me.
I have friends that don't understand my love for my cats. They do not understand that they are my babies. They mean more to me than anything.
