I am so grateful to have eight years of Ruby’s Reflections to look back on. We don’t realize how quickly we can forget the small, everyday things after we lose a loved one. It’s one of the many reasons why I encourage people to journal after they lose a cat and write down as many memories as they can. Capturing memories while they’re fresh in our minds is a precious gift to ourselves.
Today’s memory goes all the way back to 2011. Ruby had been with us for two months, and she was a happy little girl. The photo at the top of this post always makes me smile. She was so tiny, she practically disappeared in the hammock!
Today’s memory features Ruby’s wake up routine and the great shrimp caper.
