One Month ago...

We lost Sniffie....

We miss her a lot. Mom has leaky eyes a lot and we can tell she and Dad are sad. Mom says we are all doing things that Sniffie used to do. Allie sleeps in the Hepper pod and in Sniffies favorite chair, Ellie sleeps on Mom's pillow a lot and somebody has found Rosie Rat and is playing with it. Nobuddy EVER touched Sniffie's Rosie rat.



Mom thought she would have her slide show ready for Sniffie's one month anniversary, but it's still too soon for her. She has a HUGE file of pics for Sniffie's memorial. In the meantime, we'll continue to share pics of Sniffie on Femme Friday.

We understand how sad yoo must be feeling and we are sending yoo healing purrs. We know yoo will always miss Sniffie ~ but in time yoo will be able to smile at Sniffie's happy memories too.

We all miss Sniffie too ~ and we were delighted to see that when we visited Alasandra's blog today ~ there was a photo of Sniffie's Rose in bloom. The pic couldn't have been posted on a more appropriate day.

Here's the link:

You are allowed to feel sad about losing Sniffie for as long as you like. My mum's rottie Maxine left her over five years ago and she still gets sad about it.

We knows how you feel. Our crazy lady still cant see a picture, or have a thought about our angel chaos without crying. We all miss her so much. Furry big hugs to all of you and your mom! Purrs and healing to you all!

We know it takes lots of time. My Mommeh still feels sadness in her heart for her first Siamese named Haiku who went to the Bridge over 20 years ago.

Kea said...

Lots of (((hugs))) to your mom and kitty kisses to you. It'll be 4 years in January that our mom lost Chumley and sometimes she still is overcome with grief. Times doesn't "heal" wounds, but it can ease the pain.

Peace.

The Monkeys said...

We know you're all very sad about Sniffie and it's hard to believe it's been a month already...it only seems like yesterday. You kitties keep doing your best to help your Mom and Dad through this! We know it's helping.

Big purrs to you all.

The Island Cats said...

We know your mom and dad are still sad about Sniffie, and it's okay. Our mom still misses and tears up over the ones that came before us. We know that one day your mom and dad will be able to think about Sniffie with smiles. You guys keep doing the Sniffie things, okay? We think your mom will like that.

Hugs and purrs to all of you.

Brian said...

Purrs to all of you, we've been there and we completely understand. Sniffie will always be with you.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We understand how your mom feels - our mum still cries for the one who was before us and she passed last November - even typing this she has tears on her cheeks.
Give lots of cuddles and purrs to your mom to try and make her feel a bit better.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Clarissa said...

It is okay to be sad and still grieving for Sniffie's passing. Every fur and human are different. Our mom said you never "get over it" but you eventually learn to deal with it. We lost our brofur, Colin Feral, on July 16, 2005, and mom still remembers holding him as he crossed the Bridge. Give your mom some extra whisker kisses and head bumps. It will get better.

Purrs,
Clarissa & Co.

Laila and Minchie said...

We are remembering and missing your dear, sweet sister, Sniffie too.(((HUGS)))

Margaret said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Sniffie. She was a gorgeous girl. I love all the other fluffies in your home, too!

Michelle said...

Trust me, I know how hard this is. It does get better, but for me it has been so slow. It's been 7 months and I still have leaky eyes at some point everyday. I am SUPER sensitive though. It helps me remember that I truly believe Coco wouldn't want me to be too sad, and I'm sure Sniffie wouldn't want that for you either.

Cory said...

It takes a long time for the major sadness to start to ease. Mom still gets leaky about our guardian angels, especially Maggie and Morgan, but it's no longer every day.

Take time to greive and heal. Sniffie was a special girl and when you are ready we will love to watch her memorial.

Parker said...

Every day is hard when we lose someone we love, but anniversary's are especially hard.
Hugs to you from all of us...

Forty Paws said...

It seems longer than a month ago. We know how difficult it is. Our Maw still misses poodins who have been gone for many many many years. They will always be in our hearts though.
Hang in there, and we are sending purrs and hugs.

Luf, Us

Meghann LittleStudio said...

I am so sorry. I still Miss Gandalf and it has been almost 2 years, though I don't cry so much any more. It will get better, she is in a better place, and your current furbabies I am sure are doing everything they can to ease your sadness.
Gentle hugs,
Meg

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Purrs to you. It took me a good six months to stop missing Georgia and to get to fill up her space. It will take time for the rest of you to stop missing Sniffie.

Sammy and Andy said...

We miss Sniffie, but not nearly as much as y'all do.......we send our love, pets and hugs to y'all.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

We understand so much how you all miss her and how your Mom and Dad are sad, we miss Sniffie too. Our Momma still misses our tuxie brofur Max, and he has been at the Bridge for over 10 years.
(((Hugs))), purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam, Simon and Momma Jan too

DailyGs said...

Momma says time helps to take the sting out of it, but she can never stop loving those who came before us, just as she will never stop loving us.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

My human still misses the kitty who came before me, and she died in February, 2002, a few months before I was even born. So we understand how much you miss her, just a month later.

The Whiskeratti said...

Hugs and nosetaps to you all. Our the Mom totally understands how you feel.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

It is only natural to miss her that much -

Imagine how much she's missing all of woo!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

Cat said...

Your beautiful Sniffie was truly loved! By you of course, but also by the entire CB. Everyone grieves and heals in their own way so you just get to your slideshow whenever you feel ready :-)

It's a month on Saturday that Molly went to the bridge. I feel like a part of me is missing!

Marg said...

We certainly understand completely. By the way that is a gorgeous picture of her. It is so hard when you lost one.Our Mom still misses all the cats that came before us.Big hugs to Mom you other kitties that live there, be sure you daily give Mom some head bumps and purrs.

CCL Wendy said...

The sharp pain will only lessen with time. One day you will think of Sniffie without tears and just remember the happy times. Your slideshow will go a long way to honouring her life.

She's such a sweet girl, still.

ABBY said...

Purrs and hugs to all

We are keeping you in our thoughts.

We are all sending purrs and hugs to you and all your furkids. We understand how much you miss Sniffie... it can be so hard some days but we hope that your pain will ease...
Mummy still gets sad about our woofie brother who went to the bridge in 2003 too...
Purrs and hugs, Keiko, Kenji, Pricilla & Yuji

Eric and Flynn said...

The sadness never really goes. As time passes it lessens, but something will happen or a memory will flit through your mind that will make the tears come again, even after many years.You have all your happy memories though and they make the sad times bearable. We send you purrs and hugs.

BeadedTail said...

We understand and know the sadness will last a long time. We miss Sniffie and think of her often. We're sending you purrs and lots of hugs for your mom and dad.

Karen Jo said...

Take all the time you need for the slideshow. It takes a long time for the pain to lessen. I send hugs and Herman sends comforting purrs.

meowmeowmans said...

We totally understand. You loved Sniffie so much and so well. These things take time, and you will be ready whenever you are ready.

(((Purrs, prayers and whisker kisses)))

Katnip Lounge said...

Purrs and {{hugs}} from all of us. We miss Sniffie too. Take things all in your own time.
Mommy and Daddy still get sad about all the kitties that have come before, but they laugh a lot about them too. Healing takes time.

wildcatwoodscats said...

It takes a long time to not be sad over losing a special cat like Sniffie. It will happen one day and you will be smiling at the thought of her doing something she loved.

Jacqueline said...

Such a gorgeous photo/urn and lovely tribute to precious Sniffie...We know how much you love her and miss her...Sending you love and big hugs...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki
