When it’s been 3 weeks since my new fur babies came to live with me. It’s been great!!! The initial settling in went smoothly and they now all have the freedom of the house running around wherever they please. Harley the older boy is still a little nervous of the two younger brothers but it’s all going so well. I just love them to bits!! Lots of fun still ahead. I still miss my little girl terribly but it’s been great to have the newbies to run around after to keep my attention diverted from my babies passing on.

It’s been 2 weeks since I first noticed Lucy wasn’t well. Tomorrow is a week since her death. I sit on my bed thinking how it’s times like that that I feel her loss the most. I remember how I’d lie on my bed and how she would curl up behind the back of my legs. How she would stay for hours close to me, only jump off for a bite to eat or a drink and then resume her position with me. I long for her little sweet furry presence. I miss her so. The pain in my heart is physical


My precious love, Lucia. I miss her so!
