Konchwah(Hi), my LJ friends !  : )
It's been a while since I last got myself connected to this LiveJournal but finally . . . I'm here at last ! *waves* Well, I HAVE been SO VERY busy studying and all and er . . . there's so much going on, you know - like taking Excel, Word, Notes and Outlook classes and some private PowerPoint lessons, etc. *fans self* But at least I'm more comfortable using those softwares right now so it'll good on my CV when I apply for a job next time. And that's something I should be glad about, I think !!  : D

But . . . there ARE some bad news as well. Our precious cat "Jeremy" aged 16 years old, passed away peacefully at home in Kobe, Japan on 6th March, 2010 and will be greatly missed by his family.  T_T

He had been a member of our family ever since I was just a school girl and was always here with us, spreading cheers and happiness in our household, but . . . about three months ago, he was just . . . "gone" after several months of suffering from chronic kidney disease. Oh . . . he fought so hard to survive but he was kind of old anyway and was just getting weaker and weaker everyday. Um, in the end, as if he somehow knew that going on like this would only prolong the pain and agony we were all feeling and that all that medicine he had to take through tubes at Doc's twice a day would only cost his family ("us") a lot of money, just gave up and refused to eat or drink anything. *sighs*

The only thing that eased my mind was that our Doc had told us that our Jerry was not really feeling any pain but "drowsiness" as if  taking some sleeping stuff because of his body temperature dropping. ( Oh, it was also a good thing that shortly before the time came, he finally managed to drink a little bit of clean water, looking truly happy. ) And . . . as if falling asleep, he became very silent and eventually, just stopped breathing and went up to heaven. BUT . . . he was so brave right up until the end, you know. And I'm so proud of him, even today.

Truth be told, it took me THREE WHOLE DAYS to get over the loss of our beloved Jerry who was SO dear to us. Uh . . . my Mum, Dad and my brother got over it much earlier than I did but I had been having *frowns* um . . . "a lot of guilt" over the death of Jerry that there SHOULD have been some more other things I could have done to save his life.

And THIS is why I had been away from my own livejournal for so long or even just getting online on my home PC. Enjoying myself was the last thing I wanted to do after Jerry was gone, really. But now I can believe that Jerry is somewhere up in heaven right now, feeling extremely happy and healthy and that he has just been reunited with my grandparents on my father's side who had been away for years !  : )

*hugs "you all" and . . . "my Jerry" who's currently residing up there in heaven*

Oh I'm so sorry about your kitty :( You're right, he's happily at peace now after a long happy life. And it can take a LONG TIME to mourn the loss of a beloved pet ♥

*hugs tight*

Having received all those kind, comforting words from my family and friends including my LJ friends, now I can be fine as before, smile and go ahead with my life, hoping I'll get to see Jerry again someday. :)

Arigatoh(Thank you) so much for your comment. *hugs back♥

You've been working hard, learning all those difficult subjects. Good for you!

I'm sorry about your kitty. It's awfully hard when their health fails and they look to us, knowing that we will help them. You did everything possible for him and he's given you all such happy memories.

Well, I think it's just Jerry went to where we are supposed to be eventually, desu-neh(yes) ? :)

It's hard to go on as before with Jerry gone, but . . . even that tiny little one managed to go through those difficult times of illness, so I WILL take his example and try my very best, too - to go ahead with whatever I'm supposed to do in my life ! *hugs!♥*

I'm so sorry to hear that. Rest in peace, Jeremy. :(

Sixteen is a good age for a cat to reach, you must have taken good care of him. *Hugs*

Arigatoh(Thank you) so much for your comforting words, Kate-san ! *hugs*

And . . . you're right. I have been privileged to have been with him for "sixteen years" which have become memorable years of my life !! :D

I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure Jeremy had a good life and knew he was well loved.

Actually, Jerry was just a tiny little kitten when he was first spotted, abandoned at the side of the road, picked up and brought home by my brother. And . . . "yes". He really WAS ( and still is ) loved by his family ! :)

Arigatoh so much for your kind words, Deborah-san. *hugs*
