Giselle, life does go on.  It is just different.  I have 6 other house kitties 
needing attention, 9 rescues in the garage I am trying to relocate and a 
dumpster colony I feed everyday.  I still miss my Bright Eyes, Houdini and CJ 
every day.  I knew when I rescued this litter I probably wouldn't have them 
long but had no idea it would hurt so much to lose them.  

Every day I give hugs and kisses to the ones still here from the ones that have 
gone on ahead.  With time the good memories outnumber the bad ones but there 
will always be a special place in your heart for your dear sweet Pixie.  

For me helping other special needs kitties helps to fill the voids.  You will 
find something that works for you.  When you least expect it another beloved 
companion will enter your life.
