Gracey’s Legacy Helping Kids in the Class Room

Gracey’s Legacy  Living On

Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger

Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger

The end of August brought on a new wave of sadness for us.  August hasn’t been our favorite month for the past few years for a variety of reasons. Life threatening illnesses and injuries to good friends, losing loved ones, and this August was no exception.  Sadness has a way of sneaking up and taking you hostage if you aren’t careful.  I didn’t write  much in August and when September came, I realized that I let the month of August come and go and decided to shake off the blues.  I had some help.

Summer Blues Our Message to Gracey after 8 Weeks

This entry is part 8 of 12 in the series Messages to Gracey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We have the summer blues without you.

It is near the end of July and on this Sunday afternoon my heart broke all over again.  We were cleaning  the house and it was time to wash the Slankets.  It seemed like such a menial Bad Kitty tells kittens a storytask but when I picked them up I remembered how much you loved to snuggle on them and the wave of sorrow crashed over me. I hid in the office so your dad wouldn’t see me and I had a good cry.  Later when he saw me I told him that my red eyes were due to allergies.  He pursed his lips and nodded.

This first summer without you is also the first summer in four years that I am not heading out into the field.  I miss the adventure and learning at the Sea of Cortez,  in Kenya and in Namibia.  And to make matters worse, this is the first summer that the city didn’t open the swimming pool.  The best part of summer for me was being able to swim every morning. Fresh air, cool water and  a mile of meditation laps to start the day. But this summer, no field work, no swimming and worst of all no Gracey.

Annie and Eddie are both very sweet kittens and they sure have a lot of energy.  They make us laugh and force us to keep up with them and that is a good thing. We are so lucky that they rescued us.  Earlier today both kittens were in the office with me and they seemed to be fascinated with Bad Kitty.  I think he was telling them a story about you.

Maggie is trying to adjust to her new home but I get the feeling like me, she might think this is the worst summer ever.

You did it! The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club is a finalist for Best Blog Post in the 2013 Petties.  We are proud to be a finalist for our blog post Since You’ve Been Gone  Our Message to Gracey.  This post is very important to me as we work through our grief from losing Gracey.

We have been honored  for the past four years, since the Petties began.  We were thrilled to win the Pettie for Best Blog Post in 2012 for our Cat Obituary, Farewell Eastern Cougar,   I wanted the post to be a voice for the big cats and the trouble they are having surviving in human dominated landscapes. Winning the Pettie helped amplify that voice.

In 2010 we were a finalist for Best Cause Related Blog,  in 2011 for Best Cat blog, in 2012 we won for best blog post and in 2013 we are a finalist for best blog post.

Compare and Contrast How The Tiniest Tiger Began

How The Tiniest Tiger Began

Over the last three weeks, we have spent some time reflecting on Gracey’s life with us and I couldn’t help but reminisce about  the beginning of our The Tiniest Tiger community that started out on our facebook page. In those first days we talked a lot about the differences and similarities between Gracey and her big cat cousins.  One of our first photo albums on Facebook was Compare and Contrast. Do you remember this post?
