To grieve and to move on

Dear blog friends,

It has been such a long time since my last post.
Every day things have been in the way of creativity once again and I cannot wait the moment when my mind will be so much at peace that my hands and soul will harmoniously be creating something I will be proud to present.

The last 3 months have been paved with unpleasant events, unfairness, anger and grief. I do not wish to share everything but one of the toughest blow was when a lovely lady knocked at our door one early morning of October...holding our dear baby Harry in her arms...........dead.
It was 3 months ago . Not fair. Why him? Was it meant to be?

I am proud to have been the cat mum of one of the most special, independent, daring, funny and adventurous cats I have ever met in my life. We have loved him to bits and because we loved him we accepted his constant craving for freedom and need of running in the wild each day.

Now he is gone. Hit by a car.
Such is life. Cruel and unfair...

                                                         we let another little sweet heart come into our life.
                                                                                Tobias. 

He is a God sent angel that craves cuddles and gives so much that each day is filled with endless tenderness.
We feel blessed and even though Harry is in our thoughts each day, we enjoy every happy moment we share with this innocent and trusting little fluff ball.

We have done our Christmas tree and are ready to celebrate.

I hope you too enjoy every little positive moment that life has to offer.
I hope 2014 will bring you joy.
Do not hold back to the past.
Move on.
Never look back. fear not and have no regrets.

I wish you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Sad news indeed Patricia, it's hard to lose a pet you love so much. Tobias is so cute and while of course one kitty can never replace another I'm sure he's going to bring fun and laughter of his own to your life. Let's hope for nothing else but lots of joy for 2014.

I am so sorry about your angel kitty, my friend, but I rejoice that Tobias has come into your lives. This has been a very hard year for many of us, and I will rejoice to see it gone. But each day is a gift, and I celebrate with you the good things contained in each, Tobias being one of them.

Merry Christmas, my friend! JOUEAX NOEL...I hope I spelled the latter correctly...

Poor, dear kittie Harry. I adore cats and everyone of them is so unique and special in their own way. Tobias is beautiful! I am sure he can still feel the presence of Harry in your home and heart.
My brother had a rabbit, which was of the Angora breed. Their rabbit died too, and a year later they got another very charming rabbit who never knew their first rabbit, but it would go lie on the mound where the other rabbit was laid to rest. So...our very dear, precious animals 'know' things about the super natural. They feel the same things we do. Yes, your next kittie was sent from God for sure, to cheer up your hearts.
love and hugs,
Teresa in California

Hope you are enjoying your marriage bliss!
