Queen Pearl, I Will Miss You...

Well, tonight it happened. I had a feeling that Pearl wasn't going to be much longer, and in fact, the signs were there...she didn't eat her treat and was under the desk. I just checked on her a while ago and found she was gone. I know she's just a cat and she had a good life, but this is the longest I've ever had a pet. 13 1/2 years! It just makes me miss my grandfather, as they were such buds and I still picture him walking around the yard with her on his arm. Good memories, that's what counts.

This is an ATC that I made this past year which had to do with crowns, and she was definitely the queen and will rule the Land of Kitty Cats. Meowing at them that she wants her food now, nosing in on the pasta and ice cream and showing she's the boss.

I've been dealing with a cold so at the moment I'm more congested then ever! Tomorrow (well, now, today) I will heal my body and my soul.

Good Pearly Thoughts to You All,

Aww Robin...I am soo soo sorry. This made me cry this morning.

Pop and Pearl are together again and now Pearl doesn't even have to meow for her treats anymore. (But I bet she does anyway!)

Big hugs - hope you feel better soon.

Love you,

I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty. We had one for 16 years, so I can relate to how you're feeling now. She's with the other part of her family now. Hang in there.

Sending hugs and love and good thoughts your way,

Oh Robin, I'm so sorry. I wish I had a magic wand that could make everything better, but since I don't, just know that I'm thinking of you.

Hi Robin, I'm soo sorry to hear about your kitty, I'm always touched whenever someone looses their pet because i know how much mine always mean to me.

You prbly don't remember me, I used to work for Limited and met you when Sandi brought you to the store 10(?) years ago. I wanted to leave a comment to say hello but when i saw your post about little Pearl I also wanted to send you my condolences. I lost my kitty 2 years ago and he was 14. That's him in my profile photo. Well, just wanted to wish you well. - Madeline

I am soo sad to read to this post. I know exactly how you feel. I had to put my beloved Lloyd down in January and I still cry over it. I swear, if I was a witch, he was my familiar. Well, my thoughts are with you.

Hugs, Liz from MOCHA

My heart hugs you. I hope that the days are becoming more filled with warm loving memories of Pearl than with aching from her absence. Love is never really gone, you know.
