Hi Everyone. This is going to be a short and sweet post today.
This week’s bag is a combo FO-purse of the week. i’m just not feeling up to digging up a new bag to take pictures of. 🙂
So I finally finished the bag. I ended up cutting off the straps so i could redo the top. i was really unhappy w/ how flared it was, esp since I couldn’t sew the lining on right. It bothered me so much I fixed it. I think it looks better. 🙂

This is one of my favorite pictures I took of Sassy. I took this picture a few months ago, I think in February. As I look at it, my heart breaks.
I had to say goodbye to Sassy on Tues, June 8. She just quit eating on Monday/Tues and could barely move. All my friends told me I would know when would be the time to say goodbye. That time came. I had a beautiful last day with her. I spent the day just snuggling with her and loving her and she just loved me back. She was always a loving cat. Anytime I cried about anything, she would always run to me and give me snuggles to make me feel better. As weak as she was, she heard and saw me crying and she managed to lift her head for some headbutt snuggles.
The day I went to the pound to pick out a new cat was Jan 20, 1996. I went inside to take a peek and i saw 2 cats at the Mansfield Animal Shelter. One boy cat was sitting there, just giving me the stink eye. Then there was this fluffy meowy cat that ran right up to me and jumped onto my leg. I started squealing as she picked me to be her mommy. All I saw was all this orange fur, these awesome mitten paws (she was a polydactyl cat) and i heard this kitty cat just meow meow meow as I held her. My entire adult life was spent w/ Sassy. She was there with me thru my many phases in my life, my worst and my best times. She trained me well to fit her needs. 🙂
I know she’s in a better place and that thought is what is keeping me sane. Thanks to everyone for your condolences and your thoughts and hugs. You have all been a great help and blessing.
I miss her so much. Lord, please take good care of her for me.
