(From the Lolo archives)
Picking up the pieces of my broken heart...
In the wake of Lautrec's death...a huge, immeasurable wake, I am now starting to heal. Never will I forget my dear, sweet, funny, gorgeous and delicate love of a boy, but I know that he is pain free now and playing with lots of other kitties who are over on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I have a huge collection of photos of Lolo and several little videos...I look at them and it is as if he is still here with me. Of course he is...smack in the middle of my heart and always will be.
I have begun searching for a new Oriental Siamese or even just an Oriental (tricolor or tabby)...I'm addicted to those long lines...long legs, long ears, long nose and long, loud, drawn out meows that I have always loved.
In my search, I have come across some beautiful cats...parents of future kittens or kittens recently born. I'm just letting my heart lead...and fate. As has it, fate might be working now...we'll see...yesterday I was informed of a cat - no, not a kitten - that needs a home...a 4 year old Oriental Siamese Seal Point neutered boy...a love. I thought about it a lot since I learned the news and want to at least meet him. I will know when I see him and 'chat' with him whether it could be a good 'fit' to bring him into the house of Tiny, Ellwood and Ginger.
One thought I had in favour of possibly bringing home Mr. President (they boy's name is: Barak Obama...) is that as he is an adult, it might be easier for Tiny to accept him than if I brought home a brand new tiny kitten that might perturb her greatly; making her feel old and unloved. What are your thoughts? Any experience with this? I would really love to hear what anyone has to say and suggestions. I will meet Mr. President tonight.
Please, please give me your thoughts on all this. Last night, for the first time, I didn't cry myself to sleep thinking of Lolo...well, I cried, but not bawling tears. I do miss him terribly though.
