Our beautiful, big and cuddly boy, our gorgeous big lucky black cat, full of love for his family and with a major aversion for exercise, along with Scratchy, a huge part of our lives for 16 years. You fell asleep for always on Sunday the 22nd of September, at home in the arms of Dad, your best puddy buddy. Mum was with you too, both of them telling you not to be frightened and how very much you are loved. Your sister was reunited with you, for five months you were apart when she tragically passed away in April.
You had been so unwell for the last few weeks,it was so hard to see our big chubby boy becoming weaker, not in pain, always wanting to be next to us but so tired and weak. I'd been hand feeding you and waiting on your every need as you became more weary, I would have done anything for you my beautiful boy, absolutely anything.
Back in 1997 Dan close you, along with your beautiful sister Scratchy while he was on work experience at a veterinary practice. You were, along with your mum and another litter, abandoned in a bin liner by someone who for whatever reason, could not give you the start you deserved. The RSPCA found you though, and Dan was given the difficult job of socialising you all (i.e. Playing all day with a room full of kittens). You stood out as you fell fast asleep in your lit tray, what a character!! Scratchy stood out purely for her beauty in appearance and spirit. When you were big enough to be taken to your home, you were fussing and scenting us through the carrier!! For 16 years you have been our companion, softie, baby and loyal friend. Life without you is lonely, so much is missing, you filled our home and hearts with overwhelming feelings of love. I look for you always, I leave doors open for you, I leave the light on for you. I hug your carpet which brought you comfort the last couple of weeks. We are utterly and completely heart broken, we are so lucky to have each other to get through this. Itchy, you and Scratchy will never be gone, you are all around us, in the changing seasons, the air we breath and you are carried in our hearts for ever. I love you so much, now and for always Beth xxxxxxxxxxx
