Glad things are going better.

I think everyone is ready on their own time table. For me, I kept my brother's cat for him when he went on vacation. I was sad when she had to go home and it made me realize maybe I was ready to have a pet in the house again.

We've been through that too. You're ready when your're ready.

Two cats will now have great lives because of you, and yours too will be enriched.

Try to remember that when scooping boxes or cleaning up kat-yak.

My first sign that it's not time is that you're looking to "replace" the deceased.

Today was one of the hardest days in a long while...

RIP Oreo. Awesome cat, gonna miss him a ton. 15 great years with us. Spent the last couple weeks almost exclusively in my room. Lost alot of sleep in the last 2 weeks taking care of this guy.

Wish I didn't have only recent photos of him on my phone, but got new SD card with phone 2 years ago. This was taken about a month ago.
