Everybody Cries

Yeah, even us manly type felines cry. When was the last time you cried? What happened that brought tears to your eyes?

I’ll tell you the last time Pop cried. It was this past Thursday morning when a hot air balloon floated over our house. She cried because it reminded her of when Murphy used to see these big bright balloons and he would wag his tail and bark like crazy at them. We think he thought he was scaring them away.

Funny how a memory can cause a smile or a tear or maybe both at the same time.

Have a great weekend and I hope your smiles outnumber your tears.

Fred the Cat (the cat who loves you guys!)

Oh, Fred. Sometimes you bring me to tears with your insightful political analysis. And sometimes, you do it just with your insights into life. Hugs to you and PoP, and have a catnippy weekend.

I have a story like that regarding my wife's toy dog. When he was barking at the sky I was hoping it was at an owl or a hawk that was heading for him. Unfortunately it just a Remax hot air balloon.

Hiya Fred. For me it was as a response to one of Bush's many atrocities. It got me to thinking of all that might have happened had Bush not stolen the 2000 election and how different America might be today. The outrage just built up until the tears flowed.

Tell your human mother there's a surprise for her at PP: today's 2nd post.

Fred, tell POP I sympathize. It's amazing the things that will remind her of Murphy and bring the tears. Even now, almost 3 years after our dog Alice died of cancer, there are still things that make me cry.

Good thing she has you to keep her spirits up.

A good cry can cleanse the soul and lighten the heart. Maybe Murphy sent the balloon your way?

Just lost my mom and sister within 3 weeks of one another after battles with cancer. Still haven't cried for my mom, but I know it is coming.

via is right : Bittersweet, and grieving is so hard, sometimes you think you'll never come back out--it is very much like a nervous breakdown sometimes. People just don't see it like that, and a pet's passing can trigger old feelings of a parent's passing. you must grieve and then cling to every positive thought to pull yourself through it.

I always feel like I come to the comment page a day or two late and everybody has said what I was gonna say, but let me say this.

Murphy is one hell of a literary cat.
