This is going to take some getting used to. I've been cleaning up Eddie's stuff- his food and water dishes, little box, toys, cat bed...there are still cat hairs on a lot of things. I found his moose and almost started crying again. When I get the ashes, instead of spreading them in Mom's garden, I think I'll bury them with his moose. He loved that Beanie Baby!
I'll get a new cat. I'm going to wait a few months, though- probably will start looking around my birthday.
