    Any other empty nesters/former pet parents out there?

    Going through and organizing old papers including ones from my kid's childhood and my fur babies up in heaven. It's amazing how much you love and appreciate them after they have "moved on". It's amazing how their place in your heart is imprinted for life (and in my case, on my fingers). I love and miss my bio and my fur babies🙍🏻🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛ #kid #Cat #Cats #Bittersweet #Memories #organization

    All. #alone this #Christmas #day

    When chronic pain has a person, such as myself, nearly completely homebound & bedridden, living alone can surely be a big issue. #Cats are purrrfect companions, not having to be walked & go in the litter pan. I am holding onto #Hope , using every bit of might I have in me. Hurts trying so hard, for so long, continuously in the face of frustration & disapointment. I #Need to hold on, for I am to the point of extreme & exaggerated #desperation . & this being my first Christmas without her, it's reached its peak today. I'm a little #afraid to #Lose all Hope at this point. Well. Wishing a Happy Merry Christmas for us all. At least May it be the the #best we can make it. #atleast . 🙏

    Almost 3am

    It's almost 3am and I still have not slept. My cats are up and active. I'm trying to keep them quiet. I'm so tired. I'm new to your group. #Cats , #Insomnia

    Happy Humpday!

    Here’s a throwback from the days when we were all slaves to the whims of the Mighty Ginger One. He is now chasing mice on the other side of rainbow bridge, and I like to think tripping up angels and scratching their exposed ankles when they least expect it 😹

    But where would be without our little anipals… they help to keep our lives interesting. In doing so, lend it some much needed meaning so that his paw prints are furever in my heart 🐾

    Cat Dog Emotional Genius

    To have a pet and that pet feels your negative emotions and tries to absorb them all. But to have a stubborn cat or dog that pushes their negative emotions at you. Are animals really geniuses or is that a myth. Accepting that just like you have illnesses they do to. So who knows you may be a Genius.#Pets #Cats #Dogs #MentalHealth

    #Cats #FindingAHome #Christian #EmtionalSupportAnimal

    I’m quite frustrated. A lot of rentals don’t allow pets and some of the ones that do don’t allow cats 🐈‍⬛ yet allow dogs 🐕. I love cats they are emotional support animals for me. They comfort me so much. This place has animal bigotry. Dogs can cause just as much a mess and damage as cats. I’ve seen the pee mess from a dog left on the bed at an Air and B rental that was left on the formerly white bed. Argh 😡


    Drowsy Yet Want to Vent

    I'm really tired, but I have so much in my head. Just some minimal venting, needing support.

    Miss my cats, don't want to give them up. It's tearing me apart. I need my freedom and independence, but I don't know how. No one ever taught me. Can't afford it. OCD is limiting me. People stare at my trashy car. I need more room in my car. It needs repairs. The doctor I tried gave me Xanax and not Xanax ER. She would only give me one month's supply. I can have seizures, permanent disabilities, and even die if I run out. I'm feeling the difference. I can't find a psychiatrist who takes Medicare and is taking new patients. Having a hard time finding a new doctor, too. Can't eat easily because my teeth are so bad and I don't have front top teeth except broken at the gums. Too drowsy to write more.
