Wolfgang’s Garden

I don’t know what to do with myself when Spring comes.

I used to have an herb garden.

I collected herbs the way other people collect friends on Facebook.

My cat Wolfgang would sit and supervise and  I would talk to him and he would ignore me and we both had a good time.

One day I noticed Wolfie was holding his head at a funny angle and drinking bowls of water in a day.

His kidneys were failing and by Summer he was gone and I let my herb garden go wild and most of it died off and I didn’t care.

I buried Wolfgang out there and to this day I stay out of  what used to be our favorite place in the yard.

I don’t know what to do with myself when the Spring comes.

I guess I’ll hide until the Winter and hope the snow comes and covers what’s left of me and Wolfgang’s Garden.

  1. This is so sad- our animals are part of our family, and touchstones for a lot of key events in our lives as well. The wonderful thing is that there can be room in your heart for another animal!

  2. Sorry for your loss! I know what you are going through I lost my Ginger “Mae” in February of this year. Sure do miss her talking to me. Take care, be strong.
