    I’m so sorry, Russel, can’t even imagine how you guys are going through right now. Her life had so much meaning, and even the timing of her passing, being this particular week and all, says something about how special she was. My sincere condolences and know that she had in you, the best possible loving keepers to share her time on Earth. Peace

    Sorry to hear about Zoe’s passing Russel. What a beautiful piece of writing about the rainbow place – it almost brought me to tears. I have lost some close pet friends over the years. My thoughts are with you.

          Animal shelters, both public and private, are closed on Mondays here in San Diego County. We’re going to the El Cajon Animal Shelter tomorrow morning. It’s where we got Zoey the Cool Cat back in 2007.

      Thanks, Pit. Although I have had many pets throughout the decades, Zoey the Cool Cat was the one I had the longest at 12 years. I never thought one could love a simple animal like this. It’s hard, but we’ll soften the loss by getting another furry feline to love, later this morning or tomorrow at the latest.

        Even if I never met her, she was familiar to me though your posts. Do you really believe it was your fault? Maybe our loved companions decide themselves when it’s their time to leave us.

    Oh no! I am so sorry! I know it is so very hard to lose your beloved Zoey the Cool Cat! We recently lost our sweet cat who we rescued when he was just a kitten. He was an unbelievable 21 years old. We cried for 3 days afterwards and couldn’t leave the house. So, just know that there are those of us out here who understand your grief and send love and virtual hugs.

    Russel, I’m very sorry to hear Zoey has passed on. I know it’s a rough time right now. I’m one who believes we reconnect in one way or another on the other side with all those who were close to our hearts in this world. Thank you for sharing though photos and anecdotes about her.

      Speaking of Zoey the Cool Cat’s age, why she died so young is my fault. Hmmmm, I think I’ll do a blog post on that subject. Zoey should have lived so many more years, but her being the first cat, and even the first pet, that I had longer than a couple of years, I just didn’t understand, and I’m hating myself for it. I promise to do better with Olivia.
