I've been pretty quiet all week and that is because we are dealing with a death in our family. Our cat Karma died on Monday morning. I've felt pretty numb since it happened. We are trying to focus on how much he made us laugh and smile and what a social, lovable kitty he was. We still have his brother, Tanzi. It's really hard to watch Tanzi clean himself alone and eat at the food bowl all by himself, still making room for Karma. Those are the moments when I break down and can't help but let the tears flow.

Karma, you were one special kitty and you are missed every single day. I hope you are in kitty heaven, meowing loudly for food, watching birds and hurdling gates (now it's the gates of heaven instead of the baby gates in our hallway). We'll never forget how much love we had for one little funny kitty.

So, readers, please kiss your pets today and appreciate every moment you have with them. I am thankful that Craig and I have definitely done that over the years, especially since we learned that Karma had one lung and would have a shorter life span.


  1. Karma was beautiful. I know how you both loved him. I'm sorry for your loss.

  2. Sending warm thoughts your way, Lisa!

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about Karma.
    We had to put Tucker down on Monday--I still haven't written about it because it just makes me so sad.
    Hang in there...

  4. So sorry about your kitty. He was a cutie. You have lots of nice pictures and good memories.
