Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Sigh


Mom's trip to California did not go well for her. Dad broke up with her yesterday morning, and she took the next plane home. We're glad she's home with us, but we are all sad too.

You both have a very important job to do now. You are the official heart menders. You know how to do it, be sweet, cuddle, look cute, purr, rub her legs and love on her so that she will feel a little better.
Please let your Mom know that we are so sorry that things did not work out.
Love and smooches, Parker and family

Jake an' Bathsheba ... Efurryone has given truly helpful advice, so all I'll say is be sure to cuddle extra with your momma ... It's hard to break up with someone an' then move on. It takes lots of time. Be gentle with her.

We are so sorry to hear this, we are very sad too. :( As many have said here, you both have very important jobs to show her love and affection and distract her too.

Could we teleport over and cuddle with your mommy too? Would she like that??

Thank you all for visiting. We just learned that our bestest friends Rosie and Cheeto did a post on us and that's how we got all of these wonderful visitors. We had hoped to eventually be California neighbors with them, but it is not to be.

And now back to cuddling mode.

The Pink Ladies are all with you and your Mom. We know your Mom is sad right now and you both need to take care of her.

It's OK to let your Mom use the blog to vent! We all understand.

My human just read something from Bill Maher that said a person never really knows at the time whether something is good or bad. It may seem one way, but in the long run it's actually the opposite. only time will tell.

We're sending hang-tough vibes to your Mom. And you two kitties know what to do -- show her lots of love and support.

The cats have let me take over the computer as I was worried by your post. Are you Ok?
I broke up with my husband seven years ago now and almost went mad with grief. Seven years is a good storybook number and now I am happier that I have ever been in my life. I have beautiful cats that I love and they are so very gorgeous and my kids have come through, but grief took its toll and left its scars and a taste of bitterness.
Hope you are ok and that you are being kind and good to yourself and that your cats are holding you close.
Love from me, and the gingers too.

Dear heart....mine is breaking for your sadness right now. My first marriage was for 20 years...then he left. Now my darling husband of 15 years is the delight of my days....except Miss Peach of course. My days with Peach are few...she has stopped eating and is failing fast. Though there is crying in the night, rejoicing comes in the morning.
Please know how much I care.
Love Karla and miss Peach

Nancy you keep your head held high. You are a wonderful valuable purrrrson...I can sense this from your words and how you love your furs. One day when you least expect it....your Prince will sweap you off your feet...like mine did when I wasn't even looking. Our furs love us without conditions...such a treasured thought...may it comfort you. {{{{{BIG HUGS}}}}}}
