bloggers, friends, followers.

I, Monique, The Book Mystress had a loss that i am struggling to comprehend. 
My Cat, Joel-Branden who i have mentioned before and who helped my in my review of Sixteenth Summer and was mentioned in the post 5 things i love that are not books has lost his life.
He was attacked by dogs last tuesday.
Joel was my best friend and the man i confided in most, i know to most he just a cat.
Not many people know this but i was told a few years back i may never be able to have kids, i was told that as a 18 year old who didnt really want kids and it didnt matter because i had my Joel, now 23 and having lost him only a week i feel so empty in side and wish he was here, i have my girl Ella also in the 5 things post, but have had her off and one over the last year and up until xmas she wasnt not actually my dog, i love her and would die before her, but she just hasnt molded with me the same way Joel does. 
About a month ago, a man came in to our house to buy some furniture he looked at me then looked at Joel then looked back at me, and said "That cat is a part of you" he hadnt even been here five mintues..
I cant understand why he had to go, he has helped me though so much, his bowl is still waiting for him on the washing machine.
I heard the attack happen and my brother saw it, i cant get the noises My brother and my cat made.
He was seven years old, and he was suposed to be put to sleep when he was 19, 
i cant stop crying..
I wont for a while. 
I am not one for pity or anything like that, but i love my blog and my followers and wanted every one to know why i have been absent the last week and why my posts may not be as regular, i mean, hell they may be, my mum told me to dive in to my hobbys to take my mind off it, but to be honest i dont want to move on from him.
he was my life for 7 years.
so bare with me guys, i love you thank you for following me,
I added a few pictures of him be thankful i didnt add the whole 800+ i have of him, love my baby alot, 
R.I.P my little angel, mummy always told you i loves you, too much, but never enough. Cant wait to see you one day, love you and miss you

  1. I am so sorry for your loss!

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much a cat or furbaby can mean to someone. I can't imagine the feeling, but know it would be devestating when the time comes for my two kitteh babies. *hugs*

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. There really is no such thing as "just a cat." Cats are a part of your soul, they are what keep a person going. I lost my Billy back in December all the sudden due to kidney failure from a bladder infection. He was like my child. I had a complete meltdown and could not function for all of that month. I still cry thinking about him every day.

    If you need someone to talk to about Joel, feel free to email me and we can swap cat stories. Joel looked like a very sweet cat.


  4. I'm deeply sorry for your loss. There is not such thing as "just a cat." We share our lives with our animals in a way we never can with humans. Please know that it does get better, but it takes time, and you need to be as gentle with yourself as possible right now.
