I had a bad mourning day today. Stupid cat.
Right now, it’s anger. I don’t suppose that Elizabeth Kubler-Ross really expected people to be interpreting her Five Stages of Grief for pet deaths. If she had, she certainly would have considered “guilt” to be one of them. Because I do feel guilty. I feel like I should have noticed . . . something before he got to that point.
I also feel guilty about the loss of one of my cats, oh, 15 years ago. If we do see them on the other side of the “Rainbow Bridge,” I feel like he’ll be angry with me. I’ve been thinking about talking to my vet about it, just to clear the air.
Dammit. Now I’m starting to tear up.
Moving on. I took three bags of books to Half-Price Books and came away with just a little more money than a copy of The Invention of Hugo Cabret* costs. I’ve decided that’s going to be my next steampunk kids’ book to help me in writing my own.
Oh! And speaking of reading and writing, apparently there’s some kind of organzation for book bloggers? Or a club or union or something? That’s something to try to track down in the not-too-distant future.
Today’s Gratuitous Amazon Link looks to be the final of the Gitty Danesvari Ghoulfriends series, Ghoulfriends ‘Til the End.
*Not going to make a Germane Amazon Link out of this yet. I’ll wait until I’ve read it for that.
