Home Improvement by Nathaniel

tired  after  work

Nathaniel doesn’t like our wall paper anymore than we do. He is being proactive about it. Note: wallpaper removal is a tough job

I know cats like to climb, but I have no idea why Nathaniel keeps climbing to the top of the amour. He is instantly bored up there and has to come down right away.

I figured out that I had no pictures of Nathaniel on my blog. Nathaniel cam into our life a couple of weeks after we lost AndyCat. Nathaniel was a wondering around our neighborhood – very friendly . Despite having a collar and a bell , no one could find his home. so he either got very lost , or was abandoned . Unforrunatley due the park, a lot of animals ( bunnies, cats and dogs) are abandoned here. nathaniel is still a kitten- maybe 8 months old now. Here is a picture of him useing an insulated bag as a fort

today is sad

April 2, 2010 at 5:49 pm (cats, domestic life) (, , , )

I got a call from my vet today saying “Andy has returned”. What they meant was that they had his ashes for me. But for someone that reads as much vampire fiction as I do , it was a tad freaky. I couldn’t go get his ashes today. I was just too sad. I miss my cat.

Lots of people have told me that I took great care of him. Which I appreciate. But I miss him and wouldn’t mind having him around. How ever good I was to him, or what ever happy place he maybe ; it doesn’t matter. I am sad for me , not him.

I keep thinking of two stories– Pet Cemetery is the first. Somehow it seems normal that if you come back, you come back wrong. Even if you believe in reincarnation – you don’t come back the same, but in a new form with new things to learn to take you forward on your journey. And then in BTVS, when they brought back Buffy the Scooby Gang made an illogical assumption – they assumed she was in Hell. Really , she was fighting true evil and sacrificed her life for her sister i don’t see Hell being the reward for that. But the Scooby gang had to make hat assumption in order to bring her back.

Anyway, today is sad. Grieving seems to be a self-center emotion. Which is ok. It just means ther isn’t much to do to fix it.

But I do have a question. I will shortly have three small boxes of cat ashes on the mantel. I think I need to do something else with them

I haven’t written much here because so much of my energy was focused on Andy. Sadly, he left us today.
