It's been a sad week this week, I don't mind telling you. We lost a family member on Thursday. Doris had been with us a couple of months shy of 20 years when she took her final bow and disappeared behind the curtain one last time; walking into the vet's with a cat in a basket and leaving 30 minutes later with the same empty basket is something we've had to do on more than one occasion - but it never gets any easier. She was the sweetest natured animal I think we've ever had. Rest easy, little one. And say hello to Tom for us.
In other (more cheerier) news, Georgie is now officially 11½ carpet stripes long. Although he keeps looking for Doris I think he knows, deep down, she's not coming back...
I couldn't not post my favourite picture of Tom: it was taken when we were living up in North Yorkshire and about to hang 'his' painting.
My heart goes out to you, John. I know how tough that final visit to the vets can be. Live on in happy memories, Doris.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Rol. We'll be raising a glass to her this evening, that's for sure.Delete
So sorry to hear this news. As Rol said, those final visits to the vets are tough.ReplyDelete
As for Georgie, I couldn't work out the 11 and a half stripes - only forgot the tail. D'oh.
Thank you, Alyson.Delete
Yes, never forget the tail.
It's always sad when they leave us. Those vets visits are tough.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear this, what a lovely family member she must have been and, wow, what a great age to reach too. RIP Doris. Love to you all and Georgie (and what a great method of measurement!)ReplyDelete
Thank you, C. It's surely only a matter of time until it's recognised by Weights & Measures.Delete
Sorry to hear this, John. Great pictures of fine-looking cats.ReplyDelete
All three were (are, in the case of George) very photogenic.
Sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you John.ReplyDelete
Thank you, TS. Young Georgie is a good distraction.Delete
