The words just came out, and although I hate to cry, your post had me in tears. You're definitely not alone. I never had children, so my cats are my kids. I wish I had pictures or videos of all my babies, but I don't, and I envy you that. I will get a video camera and start taking pictures because they won't be with me forever, and the thought of that is not good.
Please know that I am so sorry that you lost your kitty. Life just isn't fair sometimes.
> Thanks so much for the kind words and for sharing your stories with me. They were very comforting, especially to know that I am not the only one who gets very attatched to their pets. For me, they aren't just pets, they are my children. I really do love them like I imagine mothers love human babies. Fortunately, I have some video tapes of the one I just lost. I am currently looking for them (have been misplaced) so I can look back on happier times. I just wish that it hadn't happened, wish there was something I could have done to prevent it. But, I know there wasn't a thing. I love him so much, and always will. His absence leaves a hole inside me. I'm tearing up now, so I must stop. But thank you for your support.
> Love, Elle
