Goodbye My Friend

If you have been following my blog, it is probably evident to you that I am not happy living in Arizona.  Actually, I feel like an orphan in a foreign country or a square peg trying to be fit into a round hole.  My house is up for sale so that I can attempt to correct what I consider one of my largest mistakes in life.  It has been for sale since May of this year without much activity at all.

When I moved to Arizona, I made the drive cross-country with my two cats, Benny and Damian.  Last year on October 16th, Benny developed kidney failure and had to be euthanized.  That was a very sad day for me, but Benny was almost 20 years old and had lived a long life as far as cat’s lives go.  His loss left a hole in my life.


Thankfully, I still had Dami – she has been a loving pet since my son Paul brought her home as a kitten when his tour of duty with the Marines ended. Sadly, Dami also got very ill, lost 5 pounds, became very lethargic and finally yesterday had to be euthanized.  Now, the only constant love, devotion and companionship that I had in Arizona is gone.   I feel a great loss.

Rest in peace my pets.
