In memory of the "Litl' Bits"
Animals have always been a big part of my life, sticking closer to me than most friends. Even after over 20 years, I hold a place in my heart for Billy, Black Girl, Yellow Bolly, Belle, Bandy, Jack, Jill, Bunny, Truck, Sharayah the cat, (I now have another Sharayah... a basset) and Blossum, who made me understand how animals really do have emotions and feelings and heartache.
... I will see all of you up there real soon...
Some 20 years ago, when I had Blossom, a gray tabby, I was hospitalized for quite some time, My father took the best of care of her, fed her watered her, played with her, but as days passed she became more withdrawn, refused to eat or drink, just sat looking out the window for me. He took her to the vet, where she later passed away. I wanted to know the reason she died since she had been perfectly healthy so I got the doc to do an autopsy and NOTHING was found, he said she had evidently died from a broken heart because she loved me so much and when I didn't return, she thought I had deserted her.
Years later, I married, and then went thru a terrible divorce losing everything I had; I got this cat from the pound mainly for companionship. I have to say that without her I probably would not be here to write this. Thru the tears of my own stress, she would always come and lie on my chest and listen throughout the night if necessary, wiping away my tears. Ginger, no doubt in my mind, saved my life until I could make it on my own.
I had always loved Bassets, so about the same time I got a basset, I called Sharayah. A few years later, I got a male, "Mr. Man". Sharayah and Mr. Man have had 3 litters of beautiful pups. Out of the 1st litter 1 of 8 was born dead. Even though I never knew "Litl' Bit" it broke my heart as I buried one of God's creation. Sharayah also had 8 healthy pups in her 2nd litter. All remained healthy (one was abused by the individual I sold him to and subsequently died). This is in honor of this "Litl' bit" also. Sharayah had her 3rd litter December 6 just a few days after I got home from having major surgery. We are not sure why (we suspect poisoning by someone) but at least once a week we have had to bury another puppy. We have now lost 4 "Litl' bits" out of this litter. They all have special places in my heart and always will. So in honor of Sharayh, Mr. Man, Blossom, Sharayah, Truck, Black Girl, Billy, Yellow Bolly, Bunny,Jack, Jill, Belle, Bandy, Rex, Booboo, Bubba, Turbo, Bremmer, 69, Chocolate, El Toro and all the "Litl' Bits"
I love you all and always will
