Haiku-a-day -- Sisters

someone to talk to
someone to worry about
the house is empty

Mom's cats have been her companions since my dad died. We said goodbye to Princess today. She is likely racing around like a crazy cat with her sister Mellie in Pet Heaven right now. But mom's heart is sore...and the house is quiet.


  1. Oh, my friend, I am so sorry. I can't imagine how your mom must feel, saying goodbye to her treasured companion today and then you tomorrow. My heart aches for her.

  2. Mary Lee, I am so sorry too. Your poor mom - kitties are family, and their paws and purrs help make us whole. Big hugs to both of you. This makes me think about how my mom just said that no matter how old she is, when her dog dies...she wants another. xx
