Those of you who know me already know that my kitten friend (who was 14.5 years old) passed away unexpectedly this week. While sorting through our sadness, my husband Tommy and I found a way to help Refugioâ€™s legacy live on. We took the life lessons from our kitten friend and made them into a set of rules to live by, and weâ€™re calling them “Refugioâ€™s Rules.”
Although life isnâ€™t as sweet knowing that Refugio isnâ€™t at home waiting for me when I get there, and itâ€™s hard to sit on the couch and know he isnâ€™t coming to join me in my lap… And I keep waiting for him to jump into my bed to be the little spoon, or sleep on my head or at our feet, the life lessons from our kitten friend Refugio have really helped us remember him so fondly, as well as hopefully live better and enjoy our lives and the people in it much more because of him.
It is hard doing a podcast recording without him - if youâ€™re a subscriber either on YouTube or to the audio podcast, youâ€™ve either seen him jump into my lap, or heard the reactions of guests to his giant, loving and sweet presence!
He will never be forgotten, and hopefully the pain subsides quickly, but in the meantime, we can live better and keep his memory alive and positive, with the life lessons from our kitten friend, Refugio.
I hope that you enjoy them as much as we are enjoying them. If you do, please comment or tag me on facebook, twitter, or instagram, as I would LOVE to hear how Refugioâ€™s Rules are having an impact on so many more people than he could meet in person.
