And then there were two :(



A sad household again today. We have been here before. Today we had to have another one of our cats put to sleep.

Lucy was about 15, a lap cat, and another character. She was very vocal and we often felt like we were having conversations with her. She also liked to take her place at the table when we were having dinner, resting her chin on the edge patiently waiting for some scraps.

RIP Lucy.

She looks a sweetheart. They work their way into you, eh?

Terrible news, terrible.

Not the happiest first visit to your site but I know your loss. At 62 I still have fond memories of Suzi, my first cat at the age of 18, a tailess Manx and a good friend.

Thanks for all your comments. Over the weekend we have realised just how much Lucy talked to us and we talked back. It's been very quiet around the house :( (Although one of our others Pumpkin - Lucy's sister - is snoring away nicely at the moment!).

We lost ours in November. It hurts.

When I moved in with my girlfriend a year and a half ago I became the "faux pa," as she used to say, of her two cats, Gus and Alice, who are siblings. I became attached to them pretty quickly, so when my girlfriend said, "You know, cats can live up to 18 years," I thought, This is a cruel trick! They do become family members, so I'm sorry for your loss.
