[alejandro with the book]
the story behind it goes as follows:
i stumbled upon this book in the picture book section
of a public library i was visiting last year,
always had it in my mind because of how old
my cat, Dinah, was.
I sat on the floor, legs crossed,
turning the pages,
tearing, imagining reading this at a time when
i knew i'd no longer be able to squeeze her,
hold her,
hug her,
smooch her,
and it made me really sad.
that was about a year ago.
...and this is now.
now she is gone.
it happened one week ago, today,
thinking of it
still makes me sad as ever.
i miss her so much.
i bought this book this week, and
i open it when i need to let go of some of the pent-up emotions.
some pages from it:
this page gets me every time:
{{tear, tear}}
to imagine her like this,
sitting on a cloud...

i recommend it to anyone who's lost the cat-love of their life.

it's a good gift along with a sympathy card to anyone you know who's lost the cat-love of their life.

there's also a Dog Heaven book, but i never read that one.


thinking of my Dinah

on this *saturday*...


  1. i'm so sorry about your loss babe! just the thought of losing one of my nuggets breaks my heart.

    keeping you in my thoughts today...xoxo.

  2. I'm so sorry about your precious Dinah. I'm sure she's playing with my sweet kitty, Vickie who went to Heaven on February 18th, 2005. Our sweethearts are playing together among Heaven's soft fluffy clouds with the Angels and in the tender loving care of Jesus. Rest In Sweet Heavenly Peace, Precious Babies. You are dearly loved and missed. ������������
