I recently lost someone very important to me. My cat, Oscar.
Now, in the grand scheme of things, the fact that I’m so distressed over losing Oscar is something many people just can’t feel a lot of sympathy for. Plus, there are quite a few virulent cat haters out there. I’ve decided that cats need to chip in and hire a crack PR team, because cats have lower approval ratings than President Bush in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I’m so grateful to my friends and family who have been supportive over the last few days. But I miss Oscar so much. He was a good friend to me, and our house is empty without his friendly disposition and his playful antics.
I’m not sure how this will all work out logistically in the end, but I’m trying to find some comfort in D&C 29:24-25:
For all old things shall pass away, and all things shall become new, even the heaven and the earth, and all the fulness thereof, both men and beasts, the fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea; And not one hair, neither mote, shall be lost, for it is the workmanship of mine hand.
I miss you, Oscar.
