Pet Christmas Present Cat Felix Goody bag tin petshop.co.uk

 

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge animal Lover. I have had animals in my life since I was born and to be honest I couldn’t ever imagine not having one around. Nor could I imagine the children growing up without a pet. To us, our pets are extended members of our family. We like to spoil them as much as we spoil the kids! This year has been tough, we lost our old Ginger Moggy. He was a beautiful old soul and he has left a very big hole in our lives. None more so than in Sebastian’s, our posh pedigree Havana Brown, Oriental Shorthair. So he deserves some extra special love, treats and affection as he adjusts to life without his much loved brother from another mother!

 

When Petshop.co.uk got in touch to ask if they could send Sebastian a little treat, it was a big fat yes!… Read More

The Greatest Loss of All

The loss of Milo cat

Love can come in many forms, sometimes it instantaneous, sometimes it creeps up on us without us knowing. There’s the love we feel for our friends, our family and that unexplainable, unconditional love when we becoming parents. Sometimes we love things, sometimes we love places, memories, smells and taste. Love is one of the greatest gifts we have been given as humans, but losing love, I believe is the greatest loss of anything, whatever form it came in.

For me, my first great love was that of my cat Milo. I was 21 when he came into my life a gangly, not so little, ginger kitten. Instantly I fell in love, a deep meaningful love. For all intense purposes, he was my baby, my fur baby. He was all I could ever ask for in a cat. Loving, gentle, docile. He was a doofus, but my gorgeous doofus and it made me love him even more.… Read More

#MySundayPhoto – Dear old Friend Milo

Milo#MySundayPhoto – Milo.

Some people are not animal people, some people are. I fall not the latter. My family would not be complete without a little furry friend part of it. As far as I can remember animals have alway been a big part of my life and I would not have it any other way.

Milo entered my life 13 years. A present for my 21st birthday. I always thought of myself as a dog person, but to have a dog would have been unfair as I worked full time. So I decided I would love a cat to keep me company. Independent enough to not need me 24/7 and that I could go to work and not worry.

Milo slotted into my life perfectly, he was my little fur baby. Unlike most cats he was actually very needy. He was a brute in size, but scared of anything and everything.… Read More

Dealing with Pet Illness: Where did the years go?

My Dear Friend,

I never knew how hard it would be dealing with pet illness. Ijust thought you would grow old gracefully, and one day you would fall asleep. I never once considered our last months together would be overshadowed by illness. I look back thirteen years to the day I met you, my dearest friend. Little did I know that the gangly little ball of ginger fur would become a huge part of my life. Your dedication to me never faltered, for that, I thank you so much.

 

Dealing with Pet Loss

 

 

You were such a character from the moment you came home with me. Huge for your age, but terrified of your own shadow. How you made me laugh. One time I remember, putting you in the lounge so you didn’t finish your smaller brother tea as you always did. You were only a few months old. The crying made my heart melt and I opened the door pretty much as soon as I closed it.… Read More
