Hi friends

DOB Unknown - DIED Oct 20, 2008
A very very very emotional week here at the Peterson house. On Monday, I finally made the decision to have my old lady cat put to sleep. Breathing was becoming increasingly difficult for her and she spent most of her days asleep under the bed. I have to tell you, I have NEVER done anything as hard as that in my entire life. EVER! She was an awesome cat. Yes, just a cat--but she has been with us for over 10 years. She will be sorely missed. But she is happy again and I know it was for the best. Hasnt stopped me from crying like a baby though.

But, on a brighter note. We have a new baby! Everyone Id like you to meet Punkin. The owners said she was 5-6 weeks old, but I am thinking she is only 3-4. She is itty bitty. Not even playful yet. But she is soooo sweet.

Twinkle of course hates her guts and showers her hourly with hisses. Its a bit much for her to take in though as I know she is still wondering where on earth Jenny went. I know in time they will become best of friends though. In time.

What have YOU been doing? I havent stamped a thing in ages. Too many real life issues going on. But I am hoping to get inky this afternoon!

((HUGS)) to everyone!

I am so sorry about Jenny. Reading your post brought back memories of my Pepper, Christmas eve will never be the same for me.

Punkin is adorable, what a cutie pie.

Hi Becky!

I just thought I'd check in and read your sad news. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.

your new kitten is absolutely precious! I know you will love her dearly, as will Twinkle, once she gets used to her.

Thank you for the constant love and support you give me on my blog, it means more than you could ever know!

All my love! Nancy

Oh, I'm so sorry. It's hard to lose a pet. We lost Princess a year ago and we still miss her.

I'm glad you have a cute new kitten to give your extra love to.
