Thank you so much for all of your expressions of sympathy and support on my dear Circe's death. You all helped so much. For those who have recently lost a dear pet, I'm so sorry for your loss. *hugs* I don't believe in heaven or in an afterlife, but I have to say that I've had moments in which I thought that she was with Mom and Nana, both of whom loved cats. I guess that early indoctrination runs deep. *sigh* Anyway, I'm hanging in there, and again, I thank all who have been so kind as to comment and offer kind, caring words. :-) I would like to answer your comments, but so far, no go, so I hope that this is better than nothing, and I'm sorry for that. Life is hard now. I'll be fine, though, so no worries, please, and please forgive me.
