Brief hiatus

21 Mar

Things have been pretty quiet around here lately.

For two weeks or so my cat was pretty ill. Although we tried different things to help combat his liver disease, ultimately we had to make the heart-wrenching decision to euthanize him. By the end, he was inconsolable and wasn’t sleeping…he would just walk around howling. It was awful.

He was my baby. My best friend. My everything. The two of us have been through so much together. We’ve moved together to three different cities, heck, even a different country.He was always there for me.

There really isn’t much more to say. This is a horrible time for any pet parent and I’m sure you can understand why I haven’t been cooking /blogging much lately.

There is a giant hole in my heart. I know that time is the great healer and this will get easier. But right now I am still in a place of grief.

    I am so sorry to hear about your kitty! He was a beautiful little boy, and I’m sure he loved you as much you love him. Hang in there!

    I’m so sorry for your loss Carrie, losing a loved one is always heart wrenching but I’m sure he lived a very happy life with you.

    :( So sorry! I had to put down my dog last year and it was super traumatic. Grieve and then get back into doing things you love like cooking and you will begin to heal. <3

    Very sorry. I had to euthanize my buddy of 15 years two weeks ago. I knew the time was coming and it still wrecked me. In honor of him I saved a life from the city kennel and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Stay strong. Hugs for you.
