missing oldy cats
The first full day we had Minion, I really missed Nombly and Sherry. I became conscious of going from my two old boys, to suddenly having two young girls. And then last night I dreamed about Sherry. Sigh. Little Bones, little Nombs.
I posted this comment which I wanted to echo here:
This is to me the ultimate tradgey in death - the broken relationships. One measure of a person's place in the world (human or animal) is how deep and aware are its relationships and therfore how much it will be missed after death.
And, if I might be permitted a theological insight from my own faith - I believe this is why God says he exists within love-based relationships (i.e. where two or more are gathered in my name there I am... And the Triune relational nature of God as revealed in the NT, etc...)
It's definitely a mystical thing going on.
Lovely kitties ... much missed. sniff ...
