The gift I was given by the Universe is…

The gift I was given by the Universe is the fact I experienced pet loss at a young age (very young)… and continued to experience it in many different forms throughout my young life and into my adulthood (I seriously thought I was cursed with how many cats tended to either ‘die’ or ‘go missing’ on me!). Whilst I have come to my own peace and understanding (of death) it never gets easier and I still miss a lot of my pets (RIP Bibs!).

The best thing that I like to have people focus on in regards to pet loss isn’t the loss … it’s the transition as such… they’re transitioning from something that is limited (physical form) to something immortal and limitless… they’re with us in our hearts and memories forever. Yes, it’s not the same as having them purr (if a cat) or lick our face (if a dog) however they’re all very aware that their time is limited… and the transition is their own way of allowing us to have room in our lives to share adventures with another unconditional loving soul (if we choose to do so)… as I’ve always allowed myself space to grieve yet always felt the pull to share my life with another furry companion (dog or cat)   eventually…

Yes, I know exactly what I’m in for with Marnie and Garry. It is going to hurt like a motherf-er when one or the other decides “its time”… yet that’s grief.. I’ll go through it … and move on.. and do it all over again and again and again …

I want my heart to break. It won’t ever stop until I personally am no longer of physical form.
