she was some where between 21 & 23 , sadly she passed on shortly before 3 pm . she was a good friend and will be sorely missed
There are no words for how shitty this is:

Blackie: renal failure
Honey: cancer
Socks: hippo attack
Mumbuna: rabies
Fizzy: heart failure

These words helped me. I hope they will for you too.
   
There is nothing to compare with the pain of death
You were here, and now you are not.
That’s all.

I search for you in old photographs, letters
things you touched
things that remind me of you,
but they cannot fill the space you occupied.

The space is in me too,
bleeding round the edges where you were torn away.
In the night, strange spaces haunt the space….
regret, fear, fury,
all the things we might have done,
all the unused dreams.

How can I go on with this hole inside me?
A partial person?
God, don’t let me fill the space with the wrong things.
Don’t let me cover it up
to eat me from within.
Give me courage to hold my emptiness,
to hold it gently
till the edges stop bleeding;
(will they? ever?)
till the darkness becomes friendly;
till I see some star at its heart;
till it becomes a fertile space,
growing new life within it.

If we had not loved you, we would not have wept.
This love you have given us;
this love we have carried
this love has carried us.
And I know that though I cannot see you, touch you, the love does not go away.

RE: Chat hub
Chuck, I'm so sorry for your loss. I've never had a pet other than a few fish, so I can't imagine what it's like.

RE: Chat hub
thank you all for your support .
we buried george alongside simon who failed to look both way and smokey (mama to lilly ) who was to be george's successor( given george was done hunting ) but picked a fight she couldn't possibly win leaving us with 7 kittens to bottle feed.
lilly looks for george constantly . though george was not overly fond of lilly , lilly was quite fond of george .
lilly will likely be the last cat on sand hill , least wise my last cat .

RE: Chat hub
Good Afternoon from Scotland - beautiful sunny day here today from before 9am and it is still sunny now 4:45. I have been vaping a peach flavour today but it is too strong so I added some caramel and a lot of vanilla and it is still pretty strong. It is the strongest flavour I have tried so far and I probably will not buy any more - I do not like overpowering flavours. I hope you are having a good day. Chuck - I echo TW's sentiments - hang in there.

Its always bad to lose a pet Sad thought i was going to lose my staffie last year he had 2 strokes within 6 months of each other but he pulled through but he's never been the same since, he's 15 years old now has a bit of a wobble when he tries to do things fast but he's still got a good enough quality of life Smile

RE: Chat hub
@ ecig a bold tobacco flavor works well to tame a peach flavor
