I’m at a loss for words today. One of my cats (admittedly my favourite) has been VERY sick the last couple of days and passed away a few hours ago. It’s times like this when blogging about interior design just seems so…trivial. I’d like to do a tribute to him on Monday’s pet post, and you’ll see why this has affected me so deeply. I leave you with the home and showroom for a Madrid-based antiques shop called Antiq-BR, where they carry French, Italian and Swedish treasures from the 18th & 19th centuries. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Diana from San Francisco says:

I am sorry about your sweet pet. Sending you warm thoughts on this tough day.

KiM says:

Thank you all for your kind words – I've been fighting back tears reading them throughout the day. It's made today a bit easier to get through.
(Hugs back to you Sydney. I'm sorry for your recent loss)

Jessica S. says:

My fourteen year old very healthy cat died of a heart attack with no warning a couple months back, and I was heart broken. I know what you're going through, and I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Sarah says:

So sorry to hear about your loss. I know how you feel. It's too awful when they leave us. Hope you feel better very soon. I love looking at all the pictures you share, thanks so much. Your work is not trivial, but we understand … hard to do the daily stuff when you're hurting. So glad your sweet cats have you for a mom.

Cassie says:

So sorry to hear about you cat, nice things can be a good distraction when you sad

Asterix says:

Oh Kim, you have my deepest condolences for your sad loss. I have been visiting your lovely blog for a few years now, and never left a comment before. It is one of the extremely few that I enjoy, and I so admire you and Jo for juggling so much else in your lives and still finding the energy and time to provide such a delightful place to come to. I lost my beloved Zoe ( a black and white part Persian fluff ball) nearly a year ago, and miss her more than I can say. Sometimes getting on with the trivial things helps us get through it. Seems a bit forward, but I feel I know you, so I send a big cyber-hug.

Evelyn says:

I am very sorry for your loss. Thank you for your continued dedication to your blog – I truly enjoy it.

MaryK says:

Please accept my deepest heartfelt sympathies. Sending wishes for peace, blessings.

Lisa says:

I'm so sorry. My favorite cat died 10 years ago and I still miss him. I'm sure you gave your cat a happy and loving life.

Irreplaceable – so sorry for your loss.
