You’ll Know When It’s Time

It has been a sad time at our home. Our fur baby Tiffany (Tiffy) has been sick for a few months now and I wasn’t able to write about it. But if you search for ‘Tiffy’ on my blog, you’ll find many posts about our resident cat expert in healing through ‘fur therapy’ as she has been with us almost 14 years, snuggling in our arms and hearts with her strong purr healing.

But the time has come and as I write, with tears streaming down my face, I can’t believe we had to say goodbye to her. Anyone who knows us will remember how chatty our Tiffy was as she never stopped talking/meowing to us until she got her way…and she did get her way more often than not. She and I spent every morning presently together, as she demanded to be held like a baby and snuggled after my first sip of coffee. I can’t even begin to describe how bereft I feel without my little love.

I wish I didn’t know when it was time. I wish I could have healed her so that she could have stayed with us longer. My heart is breaking without her here. My sons and I are feeling her absence as she was such a force of love here. I thought that when our first kitty Chessie (you can search for her too) passed that my heart broke wide open, but Tiffy’s loss has broken all of our hearts. Thank goodness we still have Tigger as I hope she is ready for her very needy family to get some fur therapy. May Tiffy have taught her well.

Fortunately, each precious kitty has her own set of strengths so perhaps we have to wait to see what Tigger’s are now that Tiffy has passed. Tiffy was a force to be reckoned with and so now Tigger will step up. I know it won’t be the same as each relationship is different, but as I sit here typing to you quietly, Tigger is next to me, somehow understanding that we need each other. Her calm quiet presence soothes me.

Thank you for letting me share. Keep shining your heartlights!

Shine On!

  1. I’m sorry her time had come. I had a teacher explain once that it wasn’t my job to heal my companion and delay her death; that was her path. But my love and energy could help her heal some of the karma and pain, so that her next life would be better. It’s so hard for healers when the result is not to our liking. That companion reincarnated and returned to me, much more happy and care-free. She is an energy worker in her own right, and I am privileged to have her in my life. Sometimes we have to settle for what we can do, and wait for the divine purpose to be revealed. Nonetheless we grieve, because being left behind is so hard. I’m sorry.

    • Thank you Karel for sharing your experience and wisdom. It is so nice to hear from you as I’ve not been posting as much anymore and miss our friendship. I am so glad you have her back in your life and I would love to read about it if you’ve posted that story on your blog. Please let me know…big hugs to you…xo

  2. Ah dear lady, I’m so sorry for that loss. Those precious fur souls that share our journey are a blessing beyond words. It is they that show us unconditional (except for the odd demand here and there, like on your lap for coffee 😀), and because of that become so close that it is such an impact when they go. But she gave her heart, just as you did kind lady. In that she left a present, one that you will ever take with you. A very big hug and know my heart is there with you too. Much love and light ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    • Thank you so much Mark. She was very special to me, as all of them are to all of us who love animals and their unconditional love. I much appreciate your kindness and very big hug…I needed that….❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
