grace10 Posted December 1, 2010 Report Share Posted December 1, 2010 I have no idea if this will be helpful to anyone, but I just wanted to tell the story of Lacey. Beautiful Lacey, 13 year old Russian blue type of kittie. Could even jump six foot fences at age 13 and was the perfect indoor/outdoor kittie. I named her Lacey because when i picked her up from the cat adoption person, there was a shoelace in the box. Lacey sure liked to play too. The last time I saw Lacey was on a December morning playing in the backyard. I had to take a trip to LA that day. On the way home, I remember I stopped at Burlington Coat Factory and bought my mother some sweaters for Christmas. I was so filled with joy doing this. I still have one of those sweaters in my drawer. When I arrived home, Lacey was nowhere to be found. To make a long story short, never found. I do not know if it was foul play or a fight with another animal. A psychic I trusted said she did battle with another animal. She was always skittish about other cats and any animal. Now, four years later, I have two young cats in my home. One is Gracie, a beautiful Calico scaredy kittie almost two years old who was rescued from hanging with the feral cats and very pregnant at the time. After Gracie settled in, I thought she needed a companion. Less than a month before my mother passed on, Ollie, three month old kitten arrived in my life. Amazingly, the two now get along with each other. I am just telling this story, because, just as it hurts so deeply to lose a beloved pet, and I feel sad telling the story of Lacey, we do heal on many levels, and there will be room in your heart at the right time for new pets to love. Ollie, especially, has been such a comfort and blessing with his affection his insistence for me to play. The kitties have helped me as I grieve the October loss of my mother.
