    Default RIP Newt

    My 16+ cat traversed the Rainbow Bridge today. Not unexpected, but still heartbreaking. Her littermate is a bit confused and will probably have an even harder time adjusting. Today is a bit raw. I know tomorrow will be different, although not necessarily easier. Sigh.

    Double sadness. I thought this was about that toadie, hypocritical womanizer Gingrich. Then, I realize it's actually about someone's beloved pet! Hugs, Daphodil!

    ^^I initially thought the same thing, I guess we should have paid attention to the fact this is in the Pets and Animals section...

    Daphodil, sorry for your loss...

    LOL, you guys made me literally laugh out loud - thank you! <3

    ETA: She was named after Newt in Aliens - "Uh oh. I made a clean spot here. Now I've done it. Guess I'll have to do the whole thing. Hard to believe there's a little girl under all this. And a pretty one too." Her full name was Minute because she was tiny and she was mine. Bless her. <3

    "That's just great! Why don't we put her in charge!" I love that movie! It comes on all the time on cable and I'll watch it all the way through while I'm doing stuff in the kitchen. Ripley and Hicks totally should have done it!

    I feel your pain, Daphodil. I have two of my awesome cats, two parakeets, and a beta fish buried in my backyard. We had painful funeral services for each - it's kind of embarrassing to be a guy and not be able to keep it together while memorializing a beta fish. Also, I'm going to have to start putting down markers at some point....

    Im so sorry. I did think it was about a newt, which is not as sad, although I had 2 red tailed newts. God it sucks when our pets leave us.

    I’m very sorry too. Still reeling from the loss of my two beloved dogs before Xmas so I know exactly how you feel. I’d say it gets easier over time and in some ways it does but those sudden, unexpected reminders still sting like hell. Take care.

    Sorry about your loss. Oh man, pets, why can't they just have human lifespans?

    I'm sorry for your loss. Even when you know it's coming, it still feels sudden.
