Yesterday I lost...



...my loyal writing companion...

...our family friend...

...who was absolutely certain she was a human being in a fur coat...

...old age caught up and overtook her...

...she was one groovy cat who lived up to her name...

...We'll miss you Smooch!

I never cease to be amazed at how our animals become part of our families

So sorry to hear about your loss. It must be about twenty years since my King Charles Spaniel Lucy was accidentally run over and I still miss her unconditional loyalty. I bought her for the children, but as she liked to go for walks at 2.00 am in the morning she became mine.

Vanda - I am so, so sorry. We recently lost our 14 1/2 year old Tibetan Terrier, and it is always heartbreaking. My thoughts to you...

Wah! She was a great bossy wee thing. Will miss her. Your boys will always remember her. Do get another cat (or, I dare you!) doggo. The Symon household without a four footed companion is unthinkable! (and, no, you cannot borrow Jackson).

Much love and hugs to you all.

I'll have to see if I have any cat sympathy cards in my stash....

My condolences on your cat.

Vanda, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Smooch. It's such a sad time when a family pet dies. We lost Narney (a cat who looked very much like your Smooch) a few months ago and I still miss him very much, despite the arrival of a new adorable kitten.
My thoughts are with you, hubby and the boys as you adjust to your loss.
