Thank you all for the kind words when I lost Bes. It was such a shock as she was rather young and we'd expected to have her with us for many years to come.

They become such an integral part of the family, don't they? And it's as hard every time they're gone. Sometimes I wonder why we do it over and over again, yet, they bring such joy while with us that somehow it outweighs the sorrows many times over!
In fact, we're picking up a new cat today. Not that we ever forget Bes but, as my son said, when losing her there were two empty spots in his life; one labeled Bes, which can't be filled, and another just 'family cat' that can. So we did.
