Mom is sad today...

She really misses Texas a lot. At first, she was in such shock she wasn't as sad as she thought she'd be. She was sad, but not this sad. Then, she just desperately wanted another cat- or two. This is a distinct and different feeling from missing Texas. She missed Texas, AND she wanted another cat. I think she was so busy wanting a cat, that she could only think partially about how much she missed Texas. Well, now she has me home so she doesn't miss having a cat in general anymore, and she's not in shock anymore, so now she just feels really really really sad today. Reallly sad.

Oh no, I'm so sorry she's so sad. I KNOW this is exactly how the Lap Lady will react when one of us goes to the Bridge. So we understand and send our purrs. We miss Texas too.

That's perfectly normal. #1 says she found herself crying and crying at all sorts of odd times for months after Ikkyu crossed to the Bridge. Grieving takes time.I'm sure you, Niko, will be a real comfort to her today and every day.

We're sorry your mom is sad...it will take some time...when mom lost Scooter, the one who came before us, she was sad for a long time...she still gets sad...but she said that ol' line about time healing wounds...it really is true...

You just do your best to help her feel less sad, okay??

That is so normal. Your mom was still in shock from losing Texas and even though she has a beautiful little kitty in the house again, she will still feel depressed. Give her some extra kitty taps and she will feel better.

Mom's shaking her head. She totally understands. We will purr for your Mom some more, until the sad lessens.

it is VERY normal to feel sad, Meowmie still wells up and gets teary at the strangest of times. getting Timmy has opened up a lot of emotions too - i expect perhaps your meowmie's emotions have been touched in the same way - many hugs for you x

We are so sorry that your Mom is sad. Tell her if it helps, that we all know JUST what she is going through. My dear brother Roscoe went to the bridge just one week ago. Mom says the grief is strong that at times it crushes the air right out of her lungs.

You and I will have to work extra hard to make our humans feel better during this difficult time.

Kitty kisses from Italy,

Well young Nico, looks like this is your first major project as mancat of the house - love on your Mum and help her with that sadness for as long as it lasts. You are definately the mancat for the job.
