R.I.P. Skunky

mood: sad sad

On Sunday morning, my dad told me that my cat, Skunky, had died. Ariana found her in the basement curled up on the couch. None of us can figure out what happened, she was only like five years old, and she seemed relatively healthy.

Ultimately, I know that it's not a really big deal. It's just a cat. I know lots of people who have lost family members, so I know I shouldn't make a huge thing out of it or anything.

It still feels kind of like I've lost a friend, though. I keep thinking about how she used to sleep under the covers of my bed and steal socks from the laundry and leave them outside of my door. And how she was constantly in need of attention and chewed on everything and woke me up at night by meowing until I let her in.





Rest in peace, Skunky. I hope you are happy in cat heaven.

Oh, hon, I'm so sorry. *hugs* I don't buy into that "It's just a cat" thing. Pets are an important part of one's family. You saw how upset I was when Pumpkin died over the summer. Skunky was a part of you. I can remember you telling stories about her in the past, so I'm a bit sad, too. She was such a pretty cat.

I've always believed there was a heaven for pets. Maybe Skunky is up there making friends with some of my pets who've passed.

May she spend the rest of eternity gleefully chasing mice and spend her days drinking milk brought by scantily clad male cats... :) (That's probably silly but it's probably not a bad way for a cat to spend their time) :)

Sorry for your loss. :(

Aww Margarita, my heart cries for you and for skunky. I know when I lost my cat Sammy, I was soooooooo depressed. The first few days were the worse, just grieving and realizing that she is really gone (I was also only 15 when she died), and I felt like I lost a part of my family and consequently a part of my heart. If when you go home and it really hits you then that she really is gone, and you feel sad, something I recommend you do is write a letter to Skunky- I know it sounds really corny, but it really helped me because this was like my final respects to her, and I can always go back and read my letter, I have her collar and some fur of hers kept in a little baggy (I hope to be able to clone her some day). You might be laughing now at me, but that is 5 years of love and its not something that can leave us easily.
