I am so grateful to have eight years of Ruby’s Reflections to look back on, even though of course, eight years isn’t nearly enough. 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 back to April of 2012. Ruby had been with us for about a year. She was always involved in everything I did, and that included cleaning the house (well, except when it came to the “big, scary monster.”) But that time, she got a little too helpful for her own good.
