Thank you

Thank you to everyone for your comments and kind thoughts. I've tried to respond individually where possible, but blogger comments usually don't have emails.

Yesterday afternoon we took a long walk by Ponkapoag Pond, in the Randolph/Canton segment of the Blue Hills. I have a few photos that I need to put up. It's a really beautiful, peaceful place, are we were able to get some much-needed physical exercise.

I also finished my sock last night and cast on for the second one.

I don't know what we would do right now without Ken. He and I just spent some time together. I started brushing him, and he crawled up on my lap and purred. I think he may be one of the "comforting" cats, like Zelia was.

I don't have much more to say. The comments here and on the knittyboard brought tears to my eyes. The only IRL person I've mentioned this to was my mom -- I just don't feel like having a two-way conversation with someone at work about this right now. After Zelia died, word got around the office and lots of people came over to offer their condolences. I appreciate it, and it was really nice, but every time it happened I would start crying again. I really want to wait until the rawness gets scabbed over a little before telling people.

An old friend just IMd me and I told him. So much for not telling people. Well, online is better than in person, right?

When I was in high school, my mom had a canary that she just loved to pieces. One day I looked up where his cage hung and realized that he wasn't in it. I asked mom what happened to Sunny and she said that he had died a few days before, but she hadn't said anything to anyone. Sometimes it's easier to be alone with your grief for a while before you tell anyone about it.

Zanti, I know what you're going through now. Just yesterday I sent out the photo and poem for Thai Shan's grave marker. And spent lunch buying frames & mats for some pictures of my boy.

He went on the 6th, but I tear up every day. And it's not going to stop soon. (But we ARE getting kittens in November...when they're big enough to leave cat-mom and come to me). My place is so empty now.

So hang in there, and give Ken a snuggle for me.
