cat, my cat

It’s been two years

It has been two years since we lost our sweet Trinity. I still can not quit replaying that day in my mind. I would’ve hoped it would have gotten easier to remember just the good things. With all deaths, I’ve had a list of “should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” but not like her unexpected death. I won’t rehash what I’ve already said. I’ll just try to cherish each day I have with those I love and not constantly think that it may be the last time. Kinda weird you hardly ever never know when “the last time” is. Continue reading

a year has passed

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

More talkative Tyler

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.

Flea products and adverse neurologic events

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.

Trinity, Tyler and Skeamer in silhouette

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.
