PO'Marathon: Day 8

Celestial Paddy O'Malley even looked good from below!😹
Images from August, 2014

A wave of missing The PO'M hit me so hard yesterday afternoon, that it took my breath away.

The daily hours I spent in his presence are now used for reading or surfing the interwebs.

Less time being outside, in the gardens, breathing the air, communing with nature.

The backyard is empty now.

Was hoping the PO'Marathon would help shed the deep loneliness that I feel.

Maybe yes, maybe no: time will tell.

Thank you, readers, for traveling this road with me.

What a sweetie.
Yes, sometimes I miss Pipo & Minko so much I want to go and get a couple of kitties right away...though I know they wouldn't replace them...I hold off though on account of the dogs...

Hugs to you right now.

#1 says she understands. She has the same avalanches of missing, especially Da Beebs who has been gone three years now.

It is hard not to miss a cat that made such an impression on you. Paddy had such a huge purrsonality that it is not something you forget or get over quickly! Mum and I miss seeing him too.
Hugs!!!!!
Purrs, Julie

I will aways miss him and his interactions with you. Something I can't nor do I want, to forget.

He would definitely be a tough one to get over, not that you'll ever really be over him. But it'd be nice if it were more bearable. He reminds me in some ways of my Tucker.

There's no need to remind you to keep your chin up, you're a natural when it comes to that. We do hope your loneliness will come to an end very soon.

Grief does come in waves like that. Sending you hugs. XO

We understand, our heart still aches at the thought of him being gone too and we only loved him from afar.

You are definitely not alone. Pet lovers of all ilk understand your pain. It hit me when you mentioned August of 2014 as the fifth of that year was when my soulmate kitty Luna left us.

Best wishes, my dear.
