This post goes out to our great friend Chi Chi. Chi Chi suffered a tremendous loss today, she lost of her cat of 12 years. Piddle, aka Pissy Twinkle. Piddle earned her name when Tyna lovingly brought her home. Tyna’s other cat Mister scared poor Piddle and she peed herself. Thank-God Piddle did not throw up or her name would be Barfy Chucky Chunks.
I went through a terrible time when my dog Bear was misdiagnosed by an idiot vet that told me Bear had bone cancer (it turned out to be bad arthritis). I took myself down to the second vet to get a second opinion but was all prepared to have to put Bear to eternal sleep. Tyna insisted in coming to the vet with me. She waited in the waiting room, listened to the diagnosis and let me literally, cry on her shoulder. Once we found out Bear was ok, and just needed some meds, Tyna and I bought bottles of Bellini to drink and celebrate!
We don’t have kids, my close LA friends and I decided we could never feel the pain if something went wrong. We have our animals. Pissy loved Tyna with all her heart and Tyna loved Pissy the same. It doesn’t matter what kind of day I’ve had. When I walk in the door my dogs act like fans and I’m Elvis. I’m the King. Everyday.
Unconditional love is a fable. Unless you’re good to an animal.
Tyna, you loved and gave Pissy a beautiful life. She loved you so much and I wish we could help take your pain away!
For Chi Chi & Pissy,
There’s something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart — it needs to mend.
Though some may say, “It’s just a pet,”
I know I’ve lost a friend.
You’ve brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante,
A friend I won’t forget.
You’ll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.
Tyna, I know you’ve had a heartbreak today and you are in our prayers. Our thoughts are with you and we love you!
