Another Loss

I don't have a ton to share at the moment, but did want to let everyone know that W/we are once again dealing with loss here in dragonfly land. It was bad enough to lose O/our beloved Duke this past October, but 2008 wasn't done with U/us, and now W/we have said goodbye to Sir's longtime beloved cat, Ripley.

Sir has written here about Ripley. She was an important part of Sir's life for more years than my own son has been alive. Ripley was a lovable kitty, very curious and friendly, with enough spitfire in her to be interesting. She liked to play rough - oddly enough enjoying very physical play with Sir. It was funny to me from a purely BDSM point of view, the harder he'd "smack" her the happier she was. I'm a very gentle soul by nature, particularly with little animals, but she never enjoyed playing with me, lol.

My kitties have typically run away and hid when visitors came to the house but not Ripley. She loved to be out in the middle of the action, allowing people to pet her (and worship her as was her due.) Ripley always wanted to know what was going on and what all the excitement was. She was certainly far more courageous than my other kitty pets.

W/we will all miss her. There is only one pet left now, he has a few health issues of his own, but hopefully he'll hang around for awhile.



  1. you are having a year like mine....so sorry and big hugs!

  2. Well, the year's almost over, I think the 1 remaining pet will last awhile. I'm sorry you've had to deal with this as well. Thanks for the hugs and right back atcha!

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet *hugs*

  4. Tapestry:
    I am so sorry for you loss. It sounds like both Duke and Ripley gave you many fond memories. My own little bichon has been gone for 7 years and I still miss him terribly, but the fond and fun memories of him help me to get thru the loss a bit.
    I want to wish you and your family A very Happy, Healthy Joy Filled and Magical New Year.
    Take Care,
