Time to say goodbye

Today Kit, my big, rambunctious, ginger tom, died.
Ever since he arrived in our lives over 15 years ago as a ball of orange fluff he brought nothing but joy. If there was an adventure to be had,mischief to be gotten into or food to pinch- he was there, with his 'who me?' expression ,a softly patting paw and his constant purr. Today he purred softly as he slipped away in my arms taking a little bit of my heart with him. Travel well my friend, I'll miss you.

A sad time for you - I know how you feel as I had to do something similar about a year ago. It's hard to say goodbye but the happy memories are good and that is such a lovely photo of your very handsome cat.

So sorry to hear the loss of a furry friend, but its a comfort the joy our animals bring to us, and no doubt the happy lives they have in return.

Just seen this on your blog - so very sorry to hear about this sad news. I shall miss looking out for him next time I'm over.
