This last month has been so crazy, dealing with Roo’s death (my other cat) around the holidays has been tough. Everyone has been so full of cheer as they should be this time of year and there I was…faking that smile.
After getting through each day, dealing with my kid and the house and the everyday stuff. in the evening, I would go to my room and cry because I missed that little boy so much. Once the tears would stop I would begin this search I started when Roo died. For whatever reason, finding every picture of him that I ever took was my mission. So there I was searching hard drives, usb sticks, cd’s…everything.
During my last search I came across this photograph of my Mikey and I just stopped. It’s one in a series that I shot a few years ago. Something about this shot right here with the way it is blown out with the light and the look on Mikey’s face in the reflection seemed to speak to me and I heard Mikey loud and clear…It’s time to let Roo go.
Mikey and I have always had this special thing between us, being best friends is why and we know each other like no one
else knows us. Mikey has followed me like a shadow for weeks now and he always does but not like since Roo died. He knows my heart is hurt but I think Mikey’s heart is hurt too because he loved Roo also. He has been doing his best to get me through this and like always he is doing a great job.
I have lost Roo and nothing will ever bring him back, it is time to let him go.
I feel fortunate to have my Mikey, he is the best friend I have ever had. It’s time to get back to our lives.
Model is Mikey
Here are a few of the shot from this series….
And this is Roo….
Roo was put to rest on November 28, 2011.
His presence in our lives is missed every single day.
Roo’s spirit taught me so much about appreciating life…right now.
His sweet soul and kind heart will live on….
for as long as I live, he shall not die.
