Ch-ch-changes

Hi friends :) A few people have asked me why the change in my blog name. Honestly, I've been thinking of taking out the "Also Known As..." bit for a while now, but the decision became easier when a copyright issue came to my attention this last month. To be safe and agreeable, I decided to make my blog name the same as my website address, KellieGonzo. It's not a terribly big deal but I wanted to mention it in case you were curious. If you didn't know, now ya do ;)

Also, I've had a tough few weeks, as you may have noticed from my sporadic posts. Unfortunately, my dumb head and my sad heart are to blame. I'm doing better now and thanks for your well wishes. Part of the reason (I won't bore you with the rest) is my kitty Sawyer has gone missing and it's been long enough that I'm thinking he won't be back. It's easy to forget sometimes to really enjoy the time you have with people you love, or pets you love in this case. It hit me a lot harder than I expected and I guess I was reminded that I have a heart after all. I'll be back and better than ever soon. Hug your kitty (or dog, or significant other, etc.) extra tight tonight for me.

  2. :( Keeping Sawyer in my thoughts. I hope he's safe somewhere, and comes home soon. Keep your chin up, girlie.

    as for the name-change, well, sometimes these things are for the better. I'll still know your site as Also Known As, and I guess that's what matters :) <3

  5. I know how you are feeling. My kitty Aska (=Ashes) has been missing since June 16th. I still hope that she will come back to us but I honestly don't think she will. Misses her a lot. How long has Sawyer been gone? I really hope that he will return to you <3

  7. Oh no, Kellie. :( We are kind of going through the same kind of thing with our orange kitty, Tucker, so I can imagine how you are feeling. I hope Sawyer does come back to you.

  9. My kitty ZIggy was missing for two+ months, and finally one day he showed up at the side of my hosue. There's still hope! After two weeks I thought my kitty was gone for good, but like I said, on one random day he decided to come home.

    I hope this gives you (and other commenters) hope that your furry family member will show up in time. <3

  10. Aww sorry about your kitten! You are right it's easy to take for granted the presence and people you love in your life until they disappear. I really hope Sawyer comes back home soon! Chin up luv!

  11. Aww Kellie, I'm so sorry. I understand your sadness. I adore my kitties so much, I even miss them when I'm at work. I would be devastated if something happened to them. I really hope he finds his way home safely. :( *Hugs* sweetie.

  12. Oh, so sad about Sawyer - all though we all hear the stories of cats coming back after a long time, it's terrible.
    One thing is to KNOW he or she died, that is terrible enough, but you can get closure.
    NOT knowing is devastating. You will forever be on the look our when you see a cat that looks like him, and part of your mind will forever wonder what happened, it does get better, but it stays with you forever...
    A big virtual hug to you..

  14. I hope Sawyer will be back soon! My cat, Schrödinger, was also missing for one night, I could not sleep, but fortunately we found him next morning. Since then I love him even more.

  21. After having to put my 21 year old kitty to sleep earlier this year then losing my 8 year old Boston Terrier to leukemia a few weeks later, this post brought a tear to my eye. My heart aches for you right now! :(

  22. Oh Kellie, so sad to hear about Sawyer. I hope that he is found soon!!

  23. I'm so so sorry for you. This happened to me in May. I had my cat for almost 6 years and one night she never came back :( I was devastated. It will get better and easier after time passes. Don't expect too much out of yourself in the beginning. Also, people that don't have pets sometimes don't grasp how something like this is important, like it's just a 'cat'. It's a family member. Don't let anyone like that get you down. I had to take a week off my job cuz all I did in the beginning is cry. You will get better,mi promise. Hugs!!!!

  24. Oh my, sometimes you don't realize how much you love them until they are gone/missing. Feel better!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So sorry to hear about your missing cat! I have to cats myself and would be miserable if they got lost. :-( Lots of hugs from me to you!

  26. So sorry about your kitty missing. That is so hard. I have in my lifetime had 2 go missing that were never found. I have an 'idea' in my mind where/why both went away. I found for me, that is kind of how I had to learn to process it. Even though it's been more than 40 yrs for one and 20 for the other, I still get heavy heart feelings when thinking of each of them. No pet can take the place of another one. But when/if you get ready, you know there are so many that need homes and are waiting for YOU to help them.

  27. I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty, my cat Orange went missing 2 years ago and I still hope he'll come back. I kinda know why he went but at the same time I wish I could look out and see him in the garden one day again. Hugs xx

  28. Sorry to hear about your kitty. :( How long has he been missing? I had a cat go missing and one night he just showed up, almost 2 months later. Cats have an amazing sense of direction...he could still come home. I hope he does.

  29. Hope he'll be back soon... I can't even imagine something like that happening to me... I have 7 cats... they were 8, but my old daughter (she was 17 y.o) died two months ago and it hit me hard... I'm not very keen on changes, anyway. Hope you get better.

  34. Oh no, I'll be thinking of you! My kitty got lost when we moved house and was gone weeks before anyone had even seen her and then took another week to try and get her to come close enough to anyone to get her, but she came back. Don't give up hope! xxx

  35. I am very sorry to hear about your kitty - it must be terrible to not know what happened or where he is! If you lived close by you would be so welcome to come and snuggle with one of mine as comfort snuggles.

  39. I'm sorry to hear about your kitty! All my kitties are indoors cause I just couldn't stand losing them anymore! We actually had a cat that went missing for a month and a half, to two months and she came strolling home, skin and bones mind you, but never the less, like nothing happened. We still have no idea where she was.

  40. Love your blog, but never commented till now.
    So sorry to hear he's missing. :(
    One of my kitties went missing years ago, she was gone for a week, for sure I thought I would never see her again. But, she came back, meowing like crazy, like nothing had happened!!
    Thinking of you...praying for his swift return home. (hugs)

  41. Our kitten went missing last month, she's an indoor cat but must have snuck past someone coming in or going out. Well, we live in the woods. We were so scared that a coyote or fox got her, but our one hope was that someone in the neighborhood took her in. We made up fliers and put them in all the mailboxes up and down the street (and on the next block). Sure enough, a few days later our next door neighbor's dog kept going nuts every time he went into the basement, they went to investigate, and found Shenanigans! Because of the flier they knew who she belonged to and brought her home.

    I hope something like this happens to you and your kitty is brought back to you.
