I just moved & I am still unpacking & getting settled. I wanted to be able to do a poem everyday for #NationalPoetryMonth & #NaPoWrMo but there’s a problem with my printer so I can’t print anything out. Nor can I scan anything I write by hand. I’m really sorry about that but this is how it is. I had to be out by the first of May & my attitude was, why wait? I found a place that had immediately occupancy & I took it. & nowadays, there’s not a whole lot of places available. So I’m thankful.
Other news: I had to put down Jack, my oldest cat. I plan to write a essay about him in the near future & post it here. I really miss him. He was SO sick … he was using the litter box but missing half the time & he was crying all the time & his fur was F*d up & I could tell that he was not going to last much longer. Plus he smelled bad. He smelled like he had something seriously wrong with him. If you hang out with animals, you know what I mean. He wasn’t right. & he wasn’t going to get any better.
I REALLY MISS HIM. He was such a grand big old cat, a Buddha of a cat. I will NEVER forget him but then … I haven’t forgotten any of my pets. But what I really miss about Jack was his presence. Like I said, he was a Buddha of a cat. He would just sit there & be mellow. Well … until these last few months. He just cried all the time. He never used to cry. I knew he was ready to go. It wasn’t an easy decision but I am not one to keep an animal alive when he’s suffering. It’s not about me. It’s about my beloved pet. I didn’t want him to cry anymore.
Thanks for hanging in there with me & I will be back to my old self within a few days.
Love to all,
