Painting of K.C.

I've been wanting to share this watercolor painting I did of K.C. lately, but as you can see, I haven't been blogging lately. Time constrictions a bit of sadness for the loss of my baby girl have kept me away so long.

This painting was done at least 10 years ago, maybe more like 15, and K.C. was pretty young then, maybe 2 or 3. I like this painting of her. It is very peaceful. And that is the chair she liked to lie on, by the big window. Just to let you know, the view out the window did not look like an open field. That's artistic license. There actually was a forest outside the window.

We had K.C. cremated. That was important to me. I want to bury her remains in our backyard. Scott is supposed to pick up her remains from the vet's office. He wants to wait a couple of months to bury her under a certain flowering tree we have when it is blooming. I want to put her remains to rest. Complete this process.

I still miss my baby. Certain things will remind me of her. A sunny afternoon in our yard. Feeding the cats tuna on a friday night. Just the day to day events she was around for.

It is a very beautiful reminder of KC and all the more special that you painted it yourself. I am so impressed with people who have that talent; I do not! I think your plans for KC's ashes sound very nice I love flowering trees and you will see KC in its beauty every time it blooms.

I know you miss her terribly! When I lost Molly back in September it just seemed like there was a big hole in the house, sounds a little silly but I don't really know how to explain it.

I'm so sorry about your KC. It is so hard to lose a cat and the longer they have lived with you the harder it is. She was a very lucky girl to have had you as an owner and been loved for so long. Remember that and cherish the memories with a smile. I am your new follower. You have lovely cats and I have 5 myself and they are all seniors. Deb=^..^=x5 Ottawa, Canada

I can see the love in your painting.
Mourning takes time, and you go ahead and do things at your own pace. Kc will always be in your heart.
