Most Mondays, Merlin our wise, old Siamese shares his wit and wisdom with Mondays With Merlin. Other Mondays, the rest of our man cats chime in about cat life with Mancat Mondays. Today, we feel great sadness in our hearts and haven’t much to say. There have been many unexpected new arrivals at the Rainbow Bridge recently and we wonder why. Why some have to go so young and others so suddenly. We know about karma and fate, God’s will and Universal Law but it doesn’t soften the blow or fill the cat-shaped holes in our hearts.
Loss is change and loss is as much a part of life as death. Even as we walk in the lush, summer garden, the first dead leaves of autumn crinkle under our feet. The days are growing shorter and the truth is: we are preparing for a big loss in our cat family and yet there is no way to prepare. There is no way to move forward on our path except one step, one breath at the time.
