:: You Used To ::

:: You Used To ::

You used to sit near the bedside, maintaining a little distance,

And stare, in your habitual silence. You would then slowly edge closer,

Jump onto the corner of the bed, and settle down comfortably.

You used to gait lightly along the edge of the bedframe, as if

You were at the top of the world, and then be stuck, such that

We would have to carry you down onto the ground once more.

You used to try to pry open the bathroom glass panel with your right paw,

The gateway to your freedom, to the rest of the house,

And then you would take your seat at your favorite armchair,

The one closest to the window, and bask nonchalantly in the sunlight,

As the world moved on with its business. The sunlight still shines

Through the windows onto the chair, but the chair has been empty for

A few days now. What remains is the sunken imprint of your weight on

The cotton cushion of your favorite chair; the embodiment of your

Presence, calm and detached, as the world and its affairs scurry away.

I happened to find your journal through a search for Into the Wild. I'm so sorry for your loss, I read all your posts about Franc Franc and looked at all the pictures. Franc Franc was beautiful and lucky to have had you. Thank you for sharing and caring so much. It reminded me of my cat, Speck who only lived for two months, Speck was a stray (as are all the animals I have and have had through the years). I found Speck when he was about 1 month old and thought he was healthy, but at 1.5 months I found out he had a respiratory illness that not many cats recover from. I forced feed him too and gave him medications but it finally took him when he was 2 months old. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

Thank you for your sharing and your kind words. Appreciate it. =)
