In June I lost my 18 year old cat, Lula, who'd traveled with me to Central America and back. I was heartbroken and you all helped me through it with so much love and sharing your own pet stories. I also learned about the Rainbow Bridge, which though I don't really have any after life beliefs gave me a format to use to "talk to Lula" and has helped tremendously!
I was finally ready to adopt again and found my new little boy who I've named Dulce which means "sweet" in Spanish. I wasn't going to get a kitten because I didn't know if I have another full kitten life in me. I realized I was assuming I wouldn't live into my 80s, but thinking about it, understood I shouldn't make such assumptions when so many Type 1's live long and healthy lives!
So I thought since you were all so here for me in my loss, I'd share my new found happiness. While Dulce is never going to be a Diabetes cat, he keeps me from feeling totally alone! I tried to upload his picture directly into the text but it just loaded gibberish. So I attached a file instead. If someone can tell me how to upload an image I'll change it. Thanks!
