I'm Missing My Brutus...

Miss you Brutus.  Time goes by a lot slower when you miss the one you love.
  Cats are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole...

   Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.  I am missing 
home and Brutus quite a lot.  It is nice to be here in Chicago, but for me the days are quite 
long without little Brutus. He cheered me up like no once else can (well he and Arvid both). 
Of course now Sniff is doing that, but my heart misses that little face with the big eyes.

Today makes it 300 days since my Brutus died.  It is also 179 days since Lil Shadow died.
My heart misses my Brutus everyday and my heart aches for Shadow and for the way he died.
  I try, and everyday is not a bad day.  No it's not, but everyday at some given time I find my 
thoughts far away wondering what if..what if and I never get an answer only more heartache.

Wednesday already.  The week is flying by.  Arvid is still removing wallpaper from the 
apartment.  Quite a chore.  This time he is doing all of the work.  I just help out with cleaning
 up and some random chores he creates, but the bulk of the job is his.  He says he likes to do it.  
This time I'm just happy to be observing.  Sniff of course finds himself in the middle of it all.

By evening yesterday it was still a hazy, wet day, but even so the sunset was quite
amazing.  Arvid spent most of the day working and the evening watching TV with Sniff
 between his legs.  I wish  could relax like he does and just watch TV in the evenings.

Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm 
inside because you're close in heart.   Our little Brutus, was a heartbeat at our feet.
