RIP Teddy and Bean

Last Sunday my cat Teddy died. She was 14 and had some medical issues and died from a heart attack.

Before Teddy lived with me she lived with Laura and Trela in Denver. Laura had her since she was 1 year old. She got her from a shelter in Boulder. Laura also had a dog named Bean, a chocolate lab.

Bean and Teddy lived together for a few years, until Laura got pregnant and Teddy came to live with me. Bean was a good dog. She lived for Laura, or rather Laura was her reason for living. Bean died this morning, a week after Teddy died. You could say it was coincidental but I think maybe those two were connected in ways that I didn't realize. 

They were both so much more than pets. They were friends and part of the family. They had such great personalities and they were nice to have around. Apparently they both had plans that didn't include any of us.  Teddy is now at the biggest turkey banquet there ever was and Bean is chasing a stick into eternity.

I miss you guys. Thanks for sharing your journeys with me.

I am so sorry for your losses. As crazy as they make us, our pets are indeed our family.

Teddy was an awesome pussy cat and I have no trouble believing that she and Bean have a connection that goes beyond our understanding. At least they are in good company on the other side.
