Thank you to everyone who left such kind messages of sympathy. They have been and always will be, an enormous source of comfort. The house seems very empty and quiet without Aoise. She is everywhere and nowhere.
My darling Aoise went to the Rainbow bridge today. She had been unwell for a few days, had lost weight and was listless. The vet did x-rays and an exploratory laparotomy and they found mesenteric lymphoma which was widespread. I agreed that the kindest thing to do was let her go, even though it breaks my heart. Thank you my darling for being my friend, companion and furry baby. I shall never forget you. Your broken hearted miewmie.
This is me soaking up some autumn sun in my jungle. Don't you think I have a pretty neck? Miewmie is always kissing my neck, my ears...well just about almost all of me actually. She is always telling me how beautiful I am and what a gentle sweet girlie I am. I think this photo captures all of that don't you think ?
Yay...miewmie is home. Thank you to all my kitty friends who teleported over to keep me company. You guys certainly know how to enjoy yourselves ! A week I dreaded wasn't quite so bad after all. Even so, I refused to eat my whiskas and would only eat my 'biscuits'. I love having miewmie home. She keeps kissing me and giving me tweets. And of course, I'm back to eating my whiskas again. It was wabbit tonight. Yummmmmm
Miewmie is putting lots of things in a big bag and you know what that means. Yes, she is leaving me to go on 'holiday'. I'm already feeling lonely. She says its only for a week and that our nice neighbour will come in and take care of me, but a week is a very very long time. Please come over and see me won't you ??
This is me drifting into lala land. Can you see my nip cushion ? I like to fall asleep with this up against my face. One of my toy mouses is also having a nap. We are lying on a large paper bag. I like this bag and won't let miewmie move it. I feel secure lying on it even though I have lots of much more comfortable nap places.
This is me very patiently waiting for mouses to come out and play. They hide from me under the shed. Last night (while miewmie was asleep) I caughted one and brought it indoors. Unfortunately it became dedded and then I lost interest and abandoned it on the carpet. Never mind, there are plenty more where that came from ! Its a pity there isn't a picture of miewmie's face when she saw the mouse first thing this morning.
Sorry you haven't heard from me for a while. It's been very difficult to get miewmie to devote some time to my bloggy page because she has been so busy in the garden (my jungle). She has taken some plants away and put some new ones in. Then of course, I have to inspect the changes, make sure she has left me enough space for my 'personal needs' and generally give my seal of approval. She is going to a garden show next week so I expect she will come home with yet more 'babies' who will take up even more space in my jungle. There really is NO MORE ROOM miewmie !!
This is me deciding whether to stay in or go out. Miewmie has kindly left the conservatory door open to help me in the decision making process, during which time all the heat is escaping through the door. Many things have to be weighed up first, like; would I rather just go back to sleep on miewmie's bed? How full is my bladder ? Are there any strange smells I need to investigate? Are there likely to be mouses out playing? Miewmie doesn't understand that this process of deliberation cannot be rushed.
There I was sitting quietly in my jungle when the peace was disturbed by a big whirry thing that was very noisy. Miewmie said it was a helicopter and there were people in it looking down at me. No, surely not.
This is me hiding in my jungle. There are no scary animals in my jungle, only mouses, birdies and froggies. I have my very own stream and I like to sit there and quietly think cat thoughts. Miewmie asks me what goes on my furry brain but she simply wouldn't understand even if I told her.
I'm feeling very smug in this photo cos I caughted a mousie last night. Miewmie heard a funny noise coming from the radiator last night but couldn't figure out what it was. This morning when she came down for breakfast, VOILA ! Mr Mousie was lying dedded on the carpet so now she knows what that noise was. All day she has been telling me what a good girl I am but she also hopes that there are no more mouses. Don't worry, miewmie, I'm on the case.
Miewmie took this when I was about 8 months old. We don't really know how old I am so this is a guestimate. Don't I look cute ? Notice how I have placed myself strategically on the sofa so no one else can sit on it. ha ha. This is an art that all cats learn very early and I was no exception. Cuteness is a passport to do just about anything you want !!
This is what my garden looks like at present. Its very very cold and everything is fwozen solid. Its the same all over the Yoo Kay apparently. I have hardly ventured owt (neither has miewmie) cos I don't like getting fwozen toesies. If it isn't waining then its snowing. Apparently its all coming from northern/eastern europe !! So all my kittie fwends in the US, can you please send us some nice warm gulf stweems to melt all this so I can go owt again. Thankyou.
I was recently adopted from the RSPCA by miewmie who was very lonely after Aoise went to the Rainbow Bridge. She wanted a special girl and I am special. I was abandoned in the past but now I have a lovely tranquil home and a beautiful garden. I am about 5 years old and entirely black apart from my sea green eyes. I am quite petite and love, love, love my food.
