I'm so sorry about Izzy. We've lost two dear cat friends in the last few years, and it is HARD. But I completely agree with you that they are worth it. They are SO worth it.

Thanks so much. It's hard, you are so right--but I can't imagine NOT having had her in our lives all these years. Maybe that's the hardest part--imagining life *without* her.

Hey, I registered, now I can comment!

What a beautiful post. Pets are really important, I think, and we love our cat. I want to have more cats, though, and I really wanted to have a female cat with kittens for a while for the boys to experience that, but I don't know if it's going to happen or not.

I hope Izzy doesn't suffer much and that you don't either, if that's possible.

I'm really just testing, A. I posted a couple comments to your blog and the other guy, it came up with a message "suspected as spam, post will be reviewed". I'm signed up with FE, my comments were perfectly fine. They never showed up! How frustrating.

If this works, I'll post a comment to your post! :)

I really enjoyed your post, particularly the last paragraph. I agree that pets represent powerful lessons of love and life. Life itself is messy and unfortunately all good things eventually come to an end. But I personally would not want to block the blessings of any experience regardless of the ultimate result.

I've lost a few pets myself and I understand how difficult it is. My sympathies to you and your family.
