Good bye Hermes  


I seem to be learning or re-learning hard lessons this year. Yesterday, was one of the hardest. My cat Hermes had lost the self preservation button, and behaving in very uncatlike behavior. As a responsible and loving caregiver for this 8 year member of my family, I had no choice but to let him go on to his next life. It hurts. I hate it. But in love, I could do nothing else.  I will miss him.

I want to tell you that in this grievous time that air_n_darkness rose up and helped me when I could only fall apart. She was with him when he passed. He was content- I know because I felt his passing. It was gentle and he took grief with him.  I will be forever grateful for her gentleness with my Hermes.

wish that there was something I could do for you and Mike Trudy, I know how much Hermes meant to both of you. It brings happiness that he passed gently, but sorrow that he had grief.

I am quite certain now that he has moved on, he will know the why and understand, and forgive the who.

I'm sorry for your loss. But, I am glad you were able to work things out.

I'm so sorry. I hope I have lost all the furr babies I have to for a long while. I hope the same for you.
