And then there were three
Hullo ma wee blog,
Sadly Bailey had to be put to sleep this afternoon after blood tests showed that her treatment had failed and her immune system had crashed due to a viral infection which she just could not fight in her frail condition. I left the vet with a heavy heart and an empty cat box, but with the consolation that I had held her at the last and she had nuzzled me gently as if to say 'let me go'. I cant believe it.
Having come for some short term temporary accommodation she and Jess had stayed with us for 9 years and we all got along just fine.
I'll miss her serene, know it all look, her heavy weight on our spot on the sofa, eager nuzzles and the face at the patio door staring at me with her Jedi mind tricks to let her in. I'll want to give a whistle across the garden and expect her to come charging in at a hundred miles an hour with an accusatory 'MEH' before heading to the utility room and a double portion of whatever is on offer. I'll miss her heavy purr whenever she was near me.
Like many cats she was a personality. Like a few, she was a star.
I'm glad she came to stay..........
And the lovely G and Jess and I will miss her.
