The Post I Feared

This morning the vet has telephoned to say that Mr Tibbs died in the night.

He was only my cat for a very short time but in that time he made a big impression. He had obviously been a loved cat at one time , he adored being stroked and having a fuss made of him. He was also one of the gentlest cats I have ever come across; even the first time I got hold of him to capture him and get him castrated, he fought by wriggling like mad until he could get away but kept his claws sheathed and didn't bite.

I'm going to collect his body a bit later and bury him where he can always overlook the view he liked to look out across.

Bummer.

We buried our beloved Puppycat under a cherry tree.

This year the little tree has a dozen cherries.

So sorry to hear about Mr Tibbs. I often wonder why we have these animals, but they give us so much. You gave him a lovely life in the short time you had him.
Take care

My love to you all for your wonderful responses.

I think I must be getting more sentimental in my old age as I still find the tears forming when I think of him. Thank you all again
