A Very Sad Day

Welcome

It's been a sad day for us as we have had to farewell our sweet cat....
He was quite the character, and even starred in his own post here.


(This was taken in 2006, when he was in his prime)

He came to us at just six weeks old, and left us today aged 16 1/2.


He was dearly loved, by three generations of the family, and the neighbours!!


He often tried to photo-bomb my card photo sessions.


He was quite adept at playing to the camera!!,


and climbing around the pergola frame, and pretending that he could not get down!!


He was adept a begging for treats - he loved chicken - his ambrosia - 
and ice cream.


Too sore to curl up, but he still loved sleeping on the deck, especially if we were out there.

Farewell our sweet, and bossy, friend, our home will be very empty without you.

  6. So sorry that you've lost your beloved friend. Easy to see he was the ruler of his kingdom here, as I enjoyed the pictures. I know Dogs wait at the Rainbow Bridge, but I would think kitties could just as well. He certainly was quite a handsome fella too. Some good pictures. TFS & Blessings.

  20. Hi, Maxine, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. We have a beloved cat too and he is only one year old, but when he got lost one night, I cried and prayed so much. What a relief to find him the following day. So I can only imagine how sad it must be to say goodbye to your beautiful cat. Sending you a hug, dear friend.
