This Week Magellan Is Grieving

Tsunami & Magellan - Acceptance

Thanks to everyone who expressed condolences for Tsunami and shared the loss of their beloved pets. This week at Friendship Friday 445 I shared how Magellan is mourning the loss of his brother. The loss of a pet leaves a hole in the hearts of everyone left behind – human, feline, canine. Please stop by to share your experiences with grieving pets and any advice you have on how to help them move past their loss.

Rainbow Remembrance Day 2020

Just a reminder – Deb Barnes at Zee and Zoey will be hosting the 5th Annual Rainbow Remembrance Day this Friday, August 28. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the lives and times of our beloved pets! I invite you to stop by my blog this weekend as we remember what an amazing cat Tsunami was. I look forward to reading about your precious pets as well!

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    “Thank you for being a friend” is a song that just says it so well. I guess I can regret not watching the Golden Girls when it was on – now that I’m older I may try it again. By the way, those Oreo Balls caught my eye and I ended up pinning it.

  3. Brian Frum says:

    Poor Magellan, it’s so hard when your best bud goes away. All of those treasures sure look wonderful today and the Dad had his eye on those truffles! The Dad sent you a graphic today.

  4. I do hope Magellan is healing. So sorry…

  5. I am sending prayers and postive thoughts to you and your family. That is all I know how to do.

    Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    Hey Girlfriend, How’s goin? Fine on this end and I even had a back shot and my back is doin’ great right now. That’s all that matters. Anyway, this song you chose was on that TV show too, right, just someone else singing it. Great choice and thank you for being my friend! God bless, stay safe and wear your mask!

  10. Ramona,

    I’m sorry that you and your critters have such an empty hole in your hearts with Tsunami’s death. This is a sad time but I know God will give you and your furbabies peace. Saying prayers for Magellan. Poor kitty! I understand how it is to miss ones brother. 🙁 Sending hugs and love to you and yours! Stay safe and be well, dear furriends.
