A Child's Anguish
Sounds dramatic I know but we lost a cat this weekend (my dear little Pepa) to illness and old age. While Steve and I knew she was not well, we didn't know how long she had left. We found her Sunday morning on the bottom of the stairs. Gretchen was so upset - she just wailed and wailed. Her mind kept jumping around - first she thought we should get a new cat then she decided she didn't want a new cat. After about an hour, she calmed down. Periodically through the day she would tell us she missed Pepa. We told her we did too.
