Sad News


We are very sad here tonight.... We've lost Raisin... He never came in last night when I called him... I was worried cause it's still been getting cold at night but he's spent many a night outside... But then this morning he wasn't waiting to come in... I even looked up and down the street thinking the worst... I worried about him all day while I was at work, the last I had seen him was Sunday morning and maybe a bit of his tail as he wandered through the backyard on Sunday afternoon... I just had a feeling all day that something had happened... It's normal for him to stay out all night but come right back in the morning, yelling at me for leaving him out... About 4pm I told son2 to ride his bike around the neighborhood to see if he could find him... Well he didn't get far as he opened the garage and from the angle he was at could see Raisin under the bush... Getting in and out of the cars in the driveway all day we hadn't seen him... We don't know what happened but it probably happened last night as he had been gone awhile by time we found him.... I'm thinking maybe he got hit by a car but we'll never know... And an odd thing is we lost Kirby just about this time last year... Hubby will take him to the SPCA in the morning... He would have been ten years old this summer... I'm gonna miss him so much... I can't stop crying... He was my best boy...
Happy Journaling...

Awww I am so sorry that you lost Raisin. We get so attached to our pets, don't we? I always enjoyed looking at his photos. He was a photogetic cat!! Just a thought... isn't it funny how you just got another cat? Guess the Lord knows what we are going to need even before we do. Will be keeping you in my prayers. Love, hugs, and prayers, Janie

I'm so sorry about Raisen. I know how you are feeling as I lost my cat this summer (18 years old) and my dog (16 yrs ) just before Christmas. I'm always looking for them yet and then remember they are gone. They are such a huge part of our lives. It's not easy to loose them at all and we'll not forget them either.

Linda,
I am ever so sorry to hear you lost Raisin. He was quite a character in your house, judging by your journal entries. You can only hope he didn't suffer much. You'll meet again beyond the Rainbow Bridge.

Maria said...

Hi, Linda, so sorry to hear about Raisin. I know it's been a few days. Animals do hold a special place in our hearts. We have a tabby that looks a lot like Raisin but much fatter. :) Hope things are getting better by now...remember the good times! Maria
