Tonight I came home to a semi-empty house.
Gizmo and Gadget are having dental cleaning done which means they need to have anesthesia.
No one was in the hallway to greet me.
No one begging for some dinner.
No one to (try to) meow at me.

Dropping them off this morning was so hard.
Gizmo cried the whole way there and as we waited to be checked in.
I felt like I was leaving my safety blanket and my heart at the vet.

Then I got the phone call.
They need to stay the night.
The veterinarian had an emergency come in and so he was not able to complete the cleaning.
The staff say they are fine and happy.
They are in a huge crate and even explored the clinic a bit earlier.

But I cannot help but be a little worried.
The cats have been with me this entire journey.
They have never spent the night any where but here at home.
I cannot lose them.
I cannot lose them this week.
In this month.

I will pick them up tomorrow afternoon.
And I cannot wait to see my kitties.
My lovely sweet kitties.

I felt that post with every single bit of me!!

I frequently talk to my counselor about my dog Kama. I confessed to her, I cry over Kama and tell her to never leave me. I would be absolutely devastated, because through all of this...she has been the best source of comfort, love, everything.

I freak, at least once on a daily basis, with the thought of losing her. I have a panic wave fly through my heart. Like I said, I am working with a counselor to calm down about this.

I always say, if anything happens to her....that's it. That's all I've got :o)

I hope your kitties are back home, safe and sound with you!
