early, with ben2 snuggled between my wrists as suzanne used to. he has been attentive with his rumbly purr and soft fur.
i'll be out of town from wednesday through friday. i had hoped to find someone to stay with ben so he won't be too lonely. it looks, however, like he will have some company, but spend the night alone. i feel sad for him. update: i'm leaving tuesday night instead of wednesday morning, so ben will have another night to himself. feel free to come on over and keep him company!
if you can get away for a short while, please teleport over to spend some time with him. he's got lots of nip, plenty of toys, and good snacks. he'd be happy to share!
i will write more about suzanne as i'm able. please know that your kind words mean more to me than i can currently express! the tears have been plentiful and the pain deep. thank you for helping me to let her go with love.
