this was taken with snap chat earlier today & i've been thinking about it.. anyone that knew me 2 years ago knows how much remi meant to me (and how much he still does). i always knew i would never, ever replace that relationship and bond with any animal, human, or thing, but i've found a new type of bond. i didn't even think of other cats for months, barley passed away 6 months after remi and my sadness deepened. a year after remi got sick i got a message about callie, it felt right, i begged and pleaded with matt for days straight, until he finally broke down and said he'd do a meet and greet. he fell in love faster than i did, but nonetheless we brought her home that same day. i've loved her since day one, but i can admit it felt weird for a little bit, almost like i was cheating remi. it was hard to explain because i loved callie, i didn't not want her, i just wanted remi back so bad. every day i thought of if i could've saved remi, or if things would've been different, but i knew things happen the way they do for reasons beyond my wants or control. callie has brought a new appreciation into my life, a new type of bond that's irreplaceable in its own. she makes me so happy, she goes out of her way to bring joy and love to everyone she meets. she never let her past define her and she loves everyone and everything. in a way, she has brought matt and i closer together and has made an enormous impact on our little family.
i'm thankful for callie, i'm thankful she came into our lives. i know, deep in my heart, remi is waiting for me at rainbow bridge, but i know when the time comes callie will be waiting with him, and when my time comes i'll approach them both with arms wide open. she has helped me move on and has shown me happiness and love when i truly needed it. i love you cal pal, i'm so happy we made you one of our own. ❤️
