and that's that

Lots of gardening while the rain subsides and this morning, Gary and I drove to our property and laid Ginny to rest next to Maggie & Sassy.
The collie statue stands guard in front of what will be a proper little garden for them someday.
The little grave-site is along our stone wall. I plan to paint their names on rocks someday soon.

More tears, more rip-at-the-gut feelings but it is now done and her memories I will cherish.
 If she was sent here to give love and just be the sweetest cat on earth, she did her job. "Let's go, Bud."
The lilacs are in bloom out along the drive-way at our spot.

I sit here typing and if I look to the right her blanket lies there. I won't move that. I have tidied up her bowls and put them away. I have taken her kitty bed and placed it by the wood-stove for the others but this blanket will stay. Perhaps one of the other 4 cats will decide to join me in my office and become my daily blogging buddy. I hope so.

hugs, Deb


  1. It's so hard to move their things, I know. So do what makes you feel comfort. They are together now. Over the rainbow bridge.

  2. How wonderful that you have such a beautiful place for them. They will all see you again one day. I know your heart is broken and I wish I could do more than send you a hug...Debbie

  3. Sad, beautiful, and hopeful. Perfect.
    xx Trish

  4. Oh It's just so hard. My thoughts are with you along with invisible arms to give you hugs.


  5. Deb what a beautiful location for your sweet cats. I love the dog statue and a garden will one day be lovely. I hope one of the others will join you and become a blogging buddy. hugs, Linda

  6. I'm glad you didn't take her blanket away.

    The resting place you have for you cats is so lovely. It must be comforting to visit. Because I have moved so many times, I still have my kitties ashes with me and it seems so incomplete, unfinished. But for now they will go with me when I pass.

  7. I'm so very sorry for your loss. That looks like a lovely place for her. =^..^= <> to you.

  8. Dear Deb,
    Big hugs and kisses to you.
    Please Take Care

  9. The resting place for your sweet animals is so beautiful.....

    I know how you're feeling..... I'm missing our Crissy, but I do know we'll be together again.

  10. A beautiful resting place for a beautiful cat!


  11. Deb, I am very sorry for the loss of your sweet Ginny. I lost a cat earlier this year. I understand your feelings of sadness and loss. It sounds like you gave her lots of love. She will surely be missed. You have set her to rest in a beautiful place. I will do the same with my K.C. in a week or two. We are waiting for a special tree to bloom in our yard, and that's where our K.C. will be. Take extra good care of yourself. My thoughts are with you.
