I originally planned on doing one of my normal posts about what new beauty product I’m loving or what to wear to your friends winter wedding, but after this weekend it just doesn’t feel right. So, if thats what you’re looking for, check back on Wednesday because things will be back to normal then, I promise.
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or even know me in real life, chances are you’ve heard me talk about my cats, Holly and Safari. Just like any other true cat lady will tell you, the amount of pure joy and love these two animals have brought into my life is impossible to put into words. Goodness knows I could go on and on for days trying to though!
Holly, my beautiful white cat with the brightest blue eyes you’ve ever seen, has won over the hearts of every anti-cat person that has walked through my door. Many people said she reminded them of a dog because of her playfulness, love for chasing water in the bathtub and drinking out of the toilet. I could count on her (we changed
his her sex when we got her because Ricki wanted a girl) to sit at the kitchen table with me every morning while I did my reading and be there on my pillow every night as we fell asleep. Holly and Safari both have been there for me during some of my lowest lows and highest highs, and love me despite them all.
Last week my sweet Holly Bear Hendrick (Ricki named her!) went to heaven and my heart hurts more than I ever thought possible. Losing a pet opens up all types of wounds and the only thing we can do is give ourselves grace every day. I’m just so thankful for the time I got to spend with Holly and don’t think any other cat in the world could’ve turned me into a proud “Cat Lady” the way she did.
