    Laying on the sofa with a hot water bottle on a cranky neck muscle and it’s really hit me how quiet and empty it is without my big boy here anymore. He would have been on the window ledge, the floor, or my belly as he rarely went upstairs if I was down here. Unlike his sister, who is very loving but regularly takes herself off upstairs. :(

    thanks Mrs F. I’m just about getting used to him not being there, as I’m waking me up, talking away, being under my feet, now I just sometimes notice something really lacking and I realise it’s him. I did dream of him last night for the first time since his passing. He was rolling on the floor in the back garden with a kicker toy when I opened the door to show my girl her new cat proof garden. It was so vivid and so beautiful to see him again xx

    I'm sorry to hear that you are missing your loved one. Cats are really that important.
    I can somewhat relate, unfortunately.
    One day I accidentaly left my pants on the sofa and forgot that I had done so. After a while I noticed the black bundle on there and I genuinely thought, for a moment, that she had come back and that things would be like they used to be in the good old times.
    After that incident I never leave my things laying around.

    So sorry Orla, they make such a big hole when they aren't around any more. Understand how you feel.

    Cats come into your heart and make your home.

    What has helped me is that I listen to quiet instrumental music pretty much all the time when I'm at my apartment. Especially during night time.

    Yes I've been there. And every time you hear a noise you think it's the cat and then you remember, and your stomach sinks. So sad x
