The Good and the Bad

Last Update: May 05, 2014

So, I signed up to Wealthy Affiliate last week and as always happens when something good comes along something Bad always happens. To me anyway.

A friend of the family passed away after battling cancer. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer and they thought they got it all. It metastasized into her brain. She was a wonderful women and we will miss her much.

At the same time my cat got sick. You can see her picture on my profile. The calico.

I was already thinking of my other cat, the grey one, Gizzy, because last year at this time she had gotten sick and died. She was hypothyroid but managed to live to 16 years.

Now my other cat was sick. Patches. The vet took tests and could only find that she had a real bad infection but didn't know where or from what. So they kept her in the hospital. Day 2, not much improvement. Then it got worse. Late in the day she ended up having a seizure. Then again in the middle of the night, another massive seizure and the Vet had to come in for that.

So yesterday I had to make the decision to put her to sleep. They still had no idea what was wrong but thought it was some sort of cancer that they weren't seeing.

It was tremendously heart breaking for me since I was just thinking the other week about how good she looks and acts for a 17 year old cat.

So yesterday was a bad day and a good day. I decided to go Premium in WA and I had to say good bye to my companion.

Right now I feel all alone and can't seem to get any work done. I just stare at the computer.

Last year I had a catalogue of disasters including lieterally crashing into a brick wall and wrecking my car and the end of a 27 year relationship. I found that my interest in learning about internet marketing helped me to block out a lot of the pain. I hope the same will happen for you. I know how heartbreaking it is to lose your pet - they give us so much unconditional love and affection. Give yourself a break from work if you can and just spend your time making progress here and things will get better Maybe it is too soon for you but I am sure there is a sad little kitten somewhere nearby who needs to find you. I have 2 Jack Russells and I don't know how I would have survived without them.

I'm so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Our retail business is a pet supply store. We have 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 rabbits, 2 guinea pigs, and 2 parrots. I say 2 dogs because last week we had to put down our 15 yr. old pug. She did great till the last month or so. She was deaf and blind but began to lose a lot of weight (even though she ate well) and was having a hard time moving around because of loss of muscle mass and strength.
I really, really, feel for you and hope you will start feeling better soon. Time heals all wounds. I don't think it makes you forget, just eases the pain. Nothing can replace your pets but you'd be amazed how getting a new kitten will take the edge off the pain. And they are so fun!
Again, so sorry for your pain. Don't tell your self you need to get over it, just feel the pain and move forward. Hang in there, when you feel this down, you can only go up!

So sorry for your loss. Lisa. I cannot imagine how I'd react if one of my companions passed on. They'd have to put me on an IV valium drip (and there's no such thing!) Grief hurts. But our minds and bodies won't let us go through it longer than we can handle. We do pull out. At least that was my experience with a recent grief. Everyone is different though. When you are ready, you will seek a brighter side. My prayers are with you. And I don't say that as a cliche. I mean it. I do hope you feel better soon.

Hi Sheila, thank you for your Condolences.

It is very hard, but I have to move forward. I am going to try my best to keep busy with my WA training and website building.

You will get through this. Crying always helps. We become so attached to our pets. They are family. Condolences.

Hi Amy.
Thank you for your kind words. My cats were like my children.
