God Bless sweet Moomoo xx

It’s so hard on us when we lose our cats, they’re a part of the family and it does hurt like hell, but it will get easier. Take care xx

A valued member of the family ,and much treasured too ,we love our pets ,as if they

Hi
Sorry to hear about your tortie. I have a tortie girl Truffle, who is 5 though acts more like 45. She loves to sleep but she has her tortitude too and when you see those big eyes, you know something is up. The other evening Hobbs ( my black 15 yr old male) was outside on the window sill. Truffle kept jumping up on the inside sill and hitting the glass opposite him with her paws - looked like she was trying to give him a fright. After a few turns at this, she went to the door and asked out. My daughter was in hysterics because when she opened the front door, Truffle darted round the corner and jumped straight up on the window sill attacking poor Hobbs. What a minx. She didn't want out at tall, she was just on a mission to tease Hobbs. She also has a mischievous habit of going under the rug in front of the fire - instead of lying on it. Tortie's do have an interesting personality. It's so hard when you lose a member of your family - whatever the circumstances. It is now 4 weeks since I lost my 2 yr old boy Hendrick, my baby. Not a day has gone by when I haven't thought about him and shed a tear. We had no Halloween pumpkin this year and missed the bonfire and fireworks and now Christmas is rapidly approaching but unlike me, I've no enthusiasm to get the decorations out of the attic. Hendy's first Christmas he climbed the Christmas tree and pulled it over. Last Christmas, he smashed a bauble but it didn't matter because he was just playing. We always have after 8's at Christmas and one of Hendy's party pieces was always knocking the rolled up wrappers off the table with his paw then chasing them round the room. It will be lonely without him and I'm feeling so sad that he won't be here to 'help' me untangle the lights like the last two years and 'help' me hang the tinsel. I've loved his wide eyes and youthful innocence as he watched the decorations sparkle. Losses are hard but I think especially at this time. I miss my little ginger boy as you miss your old tortie girl. At least you had many Christmases together that you can reflect on and your girl will have had A Wonderful Life because of you. Chin up. NIcky x
