The topic: The petsitter


The petsitter came over last night to pick up her money.  We also got her a little something at Disneyland, some Eeyore stuff (her favorite character). 

She told us that she’d slept in the extra room (the only room the cats are not allowed in), on the floor.  I guess she doesn’t sleep with pets, even at home. And she said she slept a lot better without them bugging her.  I hear that.

She said “it’s a lot of work, I don’t know how you do it.  You guys are special.”  I kind of laughed at that and made air quotes when I repeated “special”.  Then I told her there are two of us cleaning up after them and they also get to go outside during the day, which is a huge help.  And I said “we didn’t start out this way.”

She ate nothing while she was here, she didn’t shower here, she didn’t sleep in our bed…the only cleanup I had (thinking back to the other sitter, the one who killed Wally) was our clothes and a few places of cat pee.  No laundry, cat boxes were clean, no dishes, didn’t have to change the sheets.  It was lovely.

10/21/2008. Thinking of Lisa.

Why am I the only person who thought to commemorate the date? I can’t believe there are no other messages from all those thousands of people all over the world who enjoyed her company for years!!Where are they?! >;(

I miss her. I miss my cats. :’(

And we lost Wally a year ago yesterday. 

You know, I try really hard not to remember the sad days. Our first week back last year was so really terrible, that I guess I’ve just blocked most of it out. It seems like it was such a long time ago.

Now, I’m crying.
