In 2012 we said good-bye to my soul-dog Korkie. She was with me through some of the hardest times in my life. She was the only one that was with me through it all. Fourteen years, day in and day out, without question. She saved my life. I mourn her absence every day but something happened last week that shocked me.

Emma got sick – throwing up and constipated. We took her to the vet and as I sat on the floor waiting on some test results with her in my lap I discovered that she meant just as much to me as Korkie did.

Don’t get me wrong, I adore all animals. I love my animals like my children but you know when you have that connection — a soul mate. Without warning and in an instant I knew Emma and I shared that connection.

My best kitty ever. I will miss Korkie every day for the rest of my life but I take comfort in knowing that Emma is here.
