At the same time, sad news...

We had a mix of emotions the past days. On the 4th, Misquim, Lucas' new kitty, simply vanished. Rodrigo opened the door early in the morning for him to play outside as usual on that day, and he never came back again. We looked for him everywhere, and he is not anywhere. There are two possibilities: someone took him away (he was so cute, five months old, very smart and beautiful), or, sad enough, maybe the dogs chased and caught him. We couldn1t find any evidene of this, no blood or fur on the ground, but those dogs can be such a prick, we simply don't know. Lucas is so sad it breaks our hearts. During the day, while he's busy with his life, everything is kinda ok, but when the night comes, he starts hisquestions, wants to know once more how Misquim's last day was. He tries to understand how it happened so suddenly, and there's nothing we can do to make him feel better in the begining. Time will heal his little heart.
Not by chance, his grandma has three newborn kitties at home, and we took him to choose another one, NOT to replace Misquim, of course, but to make him feel happy again. He chose a sweet female (I was croosing fingers that he would choose a male, but alas... :o), white and cream color. Now we need to wait until it stops being fed by its mom, and it will be his. The night before yesterday we lit a candle and performed a goodbye ritual, and I read a beautiful pagan prayer for deceased pets Lucas wanted to listen to. He cried again a bit, I felt so sorry watching his pain...But seems like after performing this ritual, he's ready close this phase and start a new one. This is his first loss, and so young, but unfortunately is part of life.
Please send some warm vibes for my little witch and our lost kitty!

Sending so much love from Colorado! I am not a feline type person, however the loss of a pet is devestating. What a good Mommy you are to take care of him as you did and teach him the process of life and death. He is a lucky little boy!

Warmth and love to the missing cat.

This just breaks my heart. I hope your kitty just wandered off someplace and will eventually find it's way home.

Please give Lucas an extra hug today and tell him it flew all the way from New Jersey. I am so sad for him and can only hope that kitty was scooped up by another family rather than suffered any kind of attack by dogs or otherwise

Oh, no! I'm so sorry for the loss of Lucas' kitty. I know how hard it is to loose a pet for a family. My daughter still gets teary about our dog that we had to put down, and that was after planning and explanations. Poor Lucas!

Give him a big hug from me!
