Feeling Glum


We had to have our cat put down on Wednesday at the ripe old age of 13 and I'm being a right old misery guts without him. Silly though it may be he was always a comfort when I was feeling sad - a good old cuddle with him always lifted the spirits.

Still my latest knitting - some hand spun alpaca plied with fine mohair - is black which is showing up his lingering white hairs beautifully and I'm resiting the urge to pull them all out.

I shall return with more details and other stuff when I'm in a better mood.

I am sorry, even when you know that you've made the best choice for them it's still hard for you.

So sorry to hear about Puss - a pet gets to be part of the family, especially after all those years, so you're bound to miss him, Kath. Lovely photos to remember him by though...

So sorry to hear. When they have been around for that long, you really do loose a friend. Big hugs.

I am sorry to hear about your cat. I rememeber when our cats died I kept seeing them out of the corner of my eye because you just always expect them to be there. Big hug from me. xx
