Pickles and Snoopy 11/23

I have two beautiful cat brothers named Pickles and Snoopy. They are both 11 years old and will turn 12 in January.

Pickles has not been feeling well. He has some belly issues and is just not himself. I brought him to the vet clinic yesterday and they took labs and will let me know in a few days.

In the mean time…the FEAR of loss of this animal is consuming me. He’s not even gone and maybe he will be fine…but I just love him so much.

Animals in general, no matter what kind make my soul just light right up.

So I have these two that are super close to me and my mind is heading down a dark and sad path. Unnecessarily I know…but that is where it is going.

I have learned so many times in recovery not to listen to my head – because it is usually full of FEAR – which stands for FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL.

Pickles is not dead, he’s sitting in my lap right now as I type this.

I feel better sharing and getting that out. Thank you.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. Awww… pets getting older and experiencing any health issues is so hard! It’s ok to worry and it’s ok to look at them and think one day you will be without them. I use to do that with my cat and I think it’s our way of slowly coming to terms with the fact they won’t be around forever. Slowly preparing our hearts and our selves for the day that they go to the rainbow bridge- even if that day is years into the future. Pickles and Snoopy are both still young and I think you all will have many more years together! Years filled with love 🙏🙏🙏🙏❤️

  2. Keeping good thoughts for Pickles (Snoop who probably also is concerned) and especially for the GA … who always shares something helpful and kind

  3. Hey, I know how it is … I had to put a cat down this May … it really hurt & I still miss him. His name was Jack & he was a real Buddha of a cat. I had a dream about him the other night!

    My other two cats, Radar & Bobby are healthy but getting older. Radar goes to the vet for a checkup on Dec 2 & I will make an appointment for Bobby at that time.

    I’ve had lots of cats & a few dogs … we will always outlive them. Hang in there. Hugs
