Spunky & Sebastian

Today was another bittersweet day.  As mentioned in the previous post we had both Spunky (top) and Sebastian put down.  For the most part Spunky has been pretty inactive for quite a long time.  She would find various places and that would be "her place" for weeks and months at a time.  Though for the most part she was out of the way...I'm now seeing emptiness in all those spots.  Sebastian was constantly underfoot in the kitchen, always wanting milk (which made him sick).  When I got home last night he was on the stove licking the yet unwashed pan from the previous night's dinner.  Normally that wouldn't be allowed, but I let him alone.  This morning he had all the milk he wanted, I felt he deserved it.

Despite 3 dogs, 2 cats, a rabbit and a turtle.....the house seems awfully empty.

There’s something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night.
I know it will take time and strength,
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
my heart - it needs to mend.
Though some say it’s “just a pet,”
I know I lost my friend.
You’ve brought such laughter to my home
and richness to my days...
A constant friend through joy and loss,
with gentle loving ways.
Companion, pal and confidant,
a friend I won’t forget,
you’ll live for always in my heart,
my sweet forever pet.
