He's the fluffy black one on left, about 12 years old, been with me 10 years. Just me and Buddy now who is about same age.
That's terribly sad , sympathies Rich. Hope Buddy gives some solace and doesn't stress too much.

I'm sorry to hear that, RICH. Hope he went gently - in a way it's good that Buddy got to know what happened, I still wish we'd been able to let Han go at home so Bo and Fu were aware.

Buddy seems sad so I guess he figured it out. I am still bawling.

Bawl away. We lost Han on 29 March, have had a lot going on since then (including moving from Oz to the US!) and yet I can still tear up at a photo or a memory. They're family and can be some of the longest relationships you have. Be kind to yourself.

Well I hope you can comfort each other, it takes some time. I'm still listening for Nancy Boy scratching around.

Ty mourned our Hollycat for a good year or more. I am still all over the place when it comes to losing my Ty and that is 14 months later.

You bawl all you need . Loss is loss.

Very sorry to hear this. A horrible shock for you, but he probably knew nothing about it which is a little comfort. Time will help.

I’m sorry to read about Gucci Rich. It is always gut wrenching to loose a beloved furry friend.

Cats aren't really domesticated at all. It's a true symbiotic relationship.
Cat ching up on old threads here. Pumpkin will not sit on laps, but will defend laptop keyboards to the death. No reading the Daily Mirror until Pumpkin has breakfast.

I have a new friend, I won't be seeing her every day, but hopefully a few times a year.




Meet Kiwi.

She's nine years old, and was 'lent' to a good mate to take care of for a couple of weeks while her principal servant moved apartment. This turned into 'could she stay on a bit longer?' and now she's been in charge for a few months.

I've been accepted in as much as she doesn't hide from me, but stroking is not yet permitted. Over the few days I just spent visiting she followed me just about everywhere, and sat on the chair next to me at breakfast. She's quite chatty.

Aw. Her eyes are all big . That may be the name.
Try calling her Fluffchops or Sooty.
