Some Days are Harder than Others

Last week was a tough week and I just didn’t feel up to posting to my blog.  Our precious family cat, Button died.  We were lucky to have him with us for the past 10 years.  We miss him so very much.  I have had other pets who have died over the years, but it just doesn’t seem to get any easier.  They bring such joy and love to our lives.buttonandJazzy1W

We adopted him from a shelter when he was just a few months old.

At the shelter, they named him Button because they thought he was “Cute as a Button.”  We totally agreed!

It was right before Halloween and they were having an adopt a black cat day.   It was a Saturday and I was at work at my photography studio.  My daughter called me between shoots and said that she and her dad were at the shelter and she asked if she could get a cat.  (For the past few months, she had been visiting the shelter after her horseback riding lessons. ) I said, “What did your dad say?” She said, “He said I could if you said I could.”


So when I got home that night, we had a new member of the family.  And he was most definitely, Cute as a Button!


Hopefully I will get back to painting and posting new art to my blog soon.  I am off to my WP reader to catch up on what all of you blogger friends have been posting.

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell

  1. I am so so sorry for your loss, Janell. My thoughts are with you. I’m sure you all gave him a very good life.


  2. I’m SO very sorry for your loss. (I’ve been traveling and just getting caught up on email to see this.). They totally take a piece of our hearts with them when they go, don’t they? We are richer for the time they spent with us, but saying goodbye sometimes makes it hurt so bad that you wonder if it was worth it. It was, of course, but oh, how it hurts!


  3. I’m so sorry, Janell. The loss of a pet is such a hard thing to bear. My heart aches for you. He was so beautiful. I’m surprised they had an adopt a black cat day right before Halloween. They won’t adopt black cats around here if it’s close to Halloween. You have to wait till after. Hugs, Elizabeth
