We’ve had loss before, actually several years close together we lost family. I still cry about losing Trinity. I know what you’re probably thinking. She was “just” a cat and it’s been a whole year since her death.
Of course, I have happy moments and plenty to be grateful and thankful for. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband. I still have my mom and Tyler, wonderful aunts and uncles and friends, but my mind is just kind of come back to the shock, sadness and some regrets. Continue reading
I go back and forth on getting Tyler another feline playmate. Hubby is in the hard no category. No cat could replace his littermate sister Trinity for us, and I’m guessing for him either. When we are home, which is a lot of the time, I don’t think he’d appreciate another cat getting some of his attention. When we are out of the house and at night, I think he may like another cat in the house.
I used to put Revolution flea products on both Tyler and Trinity because I was told I should, to prevent heartworm. Tyler didn’t like it but Trinity acted like you’d put something horrible on her for hours even after it dried. She hated it. She acted weird. I regret ever using it.
I probably used it for no more than a year before deciding the potential of them getting heartworm being indoor-only cats versus the problems she had with it outweighed the benefits and quit. I wish I’d never put the first dose on my cats! Here is yet another reason to keep your cats inside – as they’re less likely to get fleas and need it for it’s intended purpose.
It was years later before she had her seizures and several years after we’d seen her last seizures before she passed away unexpectedly after a clean annual checkup.
They suspected a heart or brain problem for her death and today I read this.
Back on March 2nd when Trinity’s death shocked us to the core I knew I wanted a metal silhouette like we had for Skeaemer- Kind of like a custom headstone. I wanted to post this earlier but my head and migraine have taken a trip down memory lane and my head has been horrible for the last few weeks. I just couldn’t completely get rid of my migraine and it wave over me from horrible, to bad, to let me try to get something done, then repeat.
Today marks 11 years since we adopted Tyler and Trinity or as I’ve seen it recently, their gotcha anniversary and yesterday was 3 months since Trinity passed. Continue reading
I am lucky to blessed to have a mom that always encouraged me in my endeavors – except maybe my early teen years – she probably wanted to send me away for those. Actually both my parents supported me but my dad passed away when I was 32. I loved my mom’s mom too. Grandma was a special lady and I wish I would’ve spent more time asking her about her heritage and past when she was still with us. Continue reading
I had all sorts of ideas for CCoH monthly critique theme of balance and symmetry for April. I was going to do a thumbprint. I talked to my best friend about asking her teenage twins if they’d let me photograph them which is totally outside my area. I had it in mind when I went with a friend to shoot at Biltmore. I took one of Tyler with his “broken leg” pose, a set up a marble shot, then I let the deadline go by without entering anything.
I didn’t want to go see what new naming rules the club made and change my Lightroom export profile settings. I didn’t really want the pictures of Tyler critiqued because I just couldn’t take the critiquer saying anything negative about my boy right now – no matter how constructive. Plus I just didn’t really want to share something so personal and close to my heart just yet even if I originally shot some for this theme.
