It's Good to Have Friends...

Greetings, Fellow Felines - and C-a-n-i-n-e-s and Humans too!

I want to thank you all for your words of support to Mummy and Me.
We are trying to comfort each other, but it's very hard. I can't remember a time when there was no Pixie. She was with us for so long - since we were both tiny kittens. I've seen Mummy look for her instinctively when she gets home from work. And it's so very lonely for Me, now that I have nobody to play with or to talk to when Mummy is out. Mummy talks sometimes of bringing home a new little kitty. She asks me if I would like that, if I would like to have some company. I don't know how to answer her. When Pixie was sick and getting all the attention, I sometimes had wicked thoughts about how I would have Mummy all to myself, if Pixie weren't here. But I didn't mean it, kitties! I didn't! And now I'm so lonely without her!

Oh, sweetie...It takes time for humans, and sometimes non-humans, to work through their grief. Your mom will know if it's right--or WHEN it's right--to bring home a new fur baby.

When Annie passed, Derry looked for her for a long time. He'd sit at the top of the basement steps and listen for her, because she spent her last few weeks of life mostly in the basement, hiding away as much as possible. Derry wasn't particularly attached to Annie, I don't think, but they had some sort of understanding, and certainly Annie tolerated him better than she did Nicki (they did NOT get along at all, even after almost 4 years). Sometimes I see Derry still sit at the top of the basement steps, 47 weeks to the day later. I don't know that he remembers her at all as humans would remember, but at he knew (or still knows) that something is different.

I would imagine a kitten (up to 6 months) would be less threatening to you than an adult male, but I suppose you could take an instant like or dislike to anyone. Depends on your nature and how you're introduced to a newcomer, of course.

Sending hugs and universal Light...whatever is for your Highest Good is what will be, I think. :-)

Sorry, meant a kitten or young cat would be less threatening than any mature cat, of either gender.

Sweet Possum, you and Mom will always miss your sisfur, Pixie. And maybe another kitty will fill the void you and Mommy feel. There are so many furbabies who need a big brofur and Mommy to love them. When the time is right, you and Mommy will know it.
We love you and Mommy, Kassey and her Mom.

Dear Sweet Possum,

We are so sorry that you and Mommy are missing Pixie so very much. She will always live in your hearts. We bet she will help bring you a perfect baby when the time is right.

Hugs to you both.

We know you felt left out when Pixie was ill and that is normal. Your mommy may eventuaLLY want another kitty to keep you company when she isn't at home. You will be able to tell the new kitty all about your beloved sister Pixie. Hugs and purrs to your mommy and you.

I hope you get another fur baby to love. I think a youngster may be easier for Possum to tolerate. I will soon be looking in ernest for a furbaby to fill the hole in my heart left by the Admiral.

Possum, don't feel bad about wanting attention from your Mummy. A sick sibling can take up a lot of Mummy time.

Sending gentle headbuttttss to you both. It takes a while to adjust when you lose a furrbuddy like Pixie. In time you will be ready for a new furrend, and usually when you do, one will show up for up. Odds are you will see Pixie in a shadow somewhere when that happens.
