Leo the Fat Cat | Pam Holden

Just over a week ago I lost my child. My Leo. He fought a battle with cancer and he lasted a lot longer than anyone thought he would. But I think he knew how much I needed him. I‘d had him 15 and a half years and I loved him with my everything and I am devastated.
I‘m also really struggling to pay the emergency vet bills if anyone can help my Venmo is @ AndreaTrenary w/o the space.
I was MIA for awhile because of this and I hope to come back now.

Read for a book club on Monday. Got my boyfriend to read it too. Then we watched the movie last night. I thought it was going to utterly destroy me and then it didn‘t and I kind of felt let down.

@suvata @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks I‘ve had a pretty hectic and bad last few months. There was a lot of maintenance on my complex and then I had a break up with my boyfriend of over five years and that‘s been a struggle. Bit of a repeat from my last post but just wanted to let you guys know too and that it‘s on it‘s way tomorrow. I‘m really sorry this happened. I‘m not normally like this.

BeckyWithTheGoodBooks @allureofbeauty I‘m so sorry you‘re going through so much. Don‘t worry about it too much. Take care of yourself. ❤️ 2y

I finally got this one finished. And I‘m so sorry it took me so long. My life kind of fell apart in Sept and Oct. I went thru a breakup of my five plus year relationship this month and it‘s been very hard. But this will be on the mail the first and again I‘m sorry. @cwarnier @kellyann28 @staci.reads

cwarnier I am so sorry to hear that. I hope you can turn your life around for the better.
Don't feel bad, about still having this. I have 3 of our books in my possession right now. I have fallen off the reading wagon recently too. I will have “I Must Betray You“ in the mail in the next few days.

allureofbeauty @staci.reads omg. Omg omg omg omg. I somehow swapped the envelopes. That means @Kappadeemom got the Paris apartment. Omg. I am so sorry. Idek how I managed that. Beyond I have no brain right now. Im not sure what would be the best way to fix this. I could maybe PayPal both of you what it cost to media mail them and you could send them to each other. I am so fucking sorry. I can‘t believe I did this. I‘ve never done something like that before. 2y
staci.reads @allureofbeauty no worries - mistakes happen - don't beat yourself up over it. Do you still have my email address from the initial email Suvata sent? If so, just send me Kappadeemom's address and I'll send it directly to her. 2y

September was an awful month for me. I had a lot of maintenance stuff going on in my apartment so I had to do a lot of cleaning and barely got any sleep. It was an anxiety ridden month. I really hope the next month is better. I have some books to read next month that I‘m looking forward to at least.
