we're back . . .

ummm, hi efurrybuddy, it's me, meep . . .
well me n' Twizz wanna say thanks for all your patience while we was missin' . . . clearly our mom broke her most important New Year's revolution - lettin' us blog more!
efurrything is okay wif us, and we all 'purr-eciate efurrybuddy's concern. the thing is this: it was around this time last year that Buzzy started to get sick. my mom & dad kept takin' him to the vet 'cause he was losin' weight & he "just didn't seem like himself". at the time, he did need the "Bucky Fang" removed, and we all thought he was just havin' trouble recoverin' from the surgery & anti-biotics. ('cause we're all FIV+, we gots to be on meds for a longer time then most kitties, so it was understandable why he wasn't feelin' so great.) well, of course later we found out that it was much more serious than we had hoped, and Buzzy got diagnosed with that stoopid cancer. my mom's just been havin' a hard time dealin' with this 'cause she keeps thinkin' that they could have been able to help Buzzy more if they had known sooner how sick he was. so both she & my dad have been kinda sad, missin' Buzzy and wishin' that they could have done more for him. so that's why we haven't been bloggin' . . .
but we're gonna be back next week - we promise!

Your Mommy & Daddy did the best they could for Buzzy. Hindsight is 20/20 and we kitties aren't always very good at letting anyone else know if something bad is wrong with us. Purrs and hugs.

Meep, we are glad you and Twizz are getting along so well. It's easier to deal with things when you have a pal.

To Meep, & Meep's Mom & Dad -

Please, don't spend your time worrying about What Might Have Been. That is hunting for pain you don't need.

You all did the best you could for Buzzy, and no one could have done better. Kitties are expert at hiding illness and pain.

Your beans shouldn't feel bad, they did so much for Buzz. At some point we all will have to face and cross The Bridge.

But remembering is part of grieving, so let them remember. Then the memories will become good memories of the fun days you all had together.

Aw, we're sorry your mom and dad are feeling sad about Buzz. It's especially hard when your sib gets a bad sickness...I know my mom still gets sad about my sis Sophie, who was diagnosed with CRF rather late. I think they just need to let this sadness happen until it doesn't any more.

Sounds like you and Twizz are doing well. Just give your mom and dad some extra attention right now and I bet they'll be feeling better about things soon.

I'm sorry your people are feeling so down. But people do that, they beat themselves up over What If all the time. I hope yours remember that Buzz could have wound up with people who wouldn't love him as much as they did, and all his What Ifs could have been a lot shorter. He had a great life with them, and that's what matters.

What a cute picture of you two!
Try to be extra cuddly for you mom and try to make her feel better.

Yoor mom and dad need lots of snuggles now...the 'what if's' can make beans crazy. Buzz had a great life with them and they did their best for him, that is all anyone can ask. He knew right up til the end that they loved him and that's all that he could ask.

what a great picture! We were gonna say the same thing as Max. Your mom and dad were the best thing that could have ever happened to Buzzy. We know that it's hard not to think What If, but be assured that Buzzy only knew your love and he never once would have said What If

I agree with everything that's been said. Buzzy received so much love and I'm sure he wouldn't have wanted you to beat yourselves up. xxx

You all loved Buzzy so much and did the best you could for him. He wouldn't want you to be so upset. He's in a much better place now. He's happy and free from pain. That's what matters. I know how hard it is though. I know all about the guilt. We just have to try to get through it and take it one day at a time.

Hi Meep and Twizzler,
It's o.k. for your mom and dad to feel sad as long as they need. Having sad feelings about Buzzerbee just means your mom and dad will always love him very much. We all eventually learn to live with loss but always it sometimes makes us feel sad.
Give your mom and dad lots of purrs and headbutts and be patient with them.
We are sending warm fuzzy thoughts to you and your family,
Shilgiah and Tommy

Dear Meep,
They could have never known. They were wonderful parents to Buzzy!
Please tell them that. Anniversarys of unhappy things can be very hard.
I'm so happy to see that you guys are OK. You look very brotherly sitting next to one another.

Oh we're so happy to see you back. I completely understand the sadness, but there is no reason to feel guilt. Your Mom and Dad did everything they could and more to make sure Buzz was cared for and comfortable. Sometimes cat poop happens, and they love Buzz and that's what matters most.

Hi! Welcome back! I think I may have visited you before, but it has been a long while. I didn't know Buzzy but I am sorry he is gone. It is tough on our beans to lose us.

You two get all better!

We're glad that you're back, but sorry that your Mommy is having a hard time.

Our Mommy was feeling sad last week too - she was beating herself up about the same thing (only it was two years ago that Basil went to the bridge). It's hard not to, but we told Mommy that Basil, just like Buzzy, is in a better place and just waiting for all of us to join him (maybe Basil and Buzzy are playing together right now)!

Meep, It's understandable that your Mom & Dad are feeling grief and missing Buzzy. Even when everything that can be done is done, our humans miss us when we cross the Bridge. That's why we love them so much.

Hi, We stopped over from Rascal's and read about Buzzy. We're sad for you. It's hard to lose one of the family. and it does take a long time to work through it.
