Today we had to say goodbye
to our very old lady cat friend


21 years, 4 months and 4 days

A very respectable age
(surely for a pedigree cat !)
but therefore not less missed !

She was tired and thin in the end
but still enjoyed sitting or napping on your lap
and being part of our family.

Blue Bella and her big brown brother Bagheera
were in fact daughter's cats.
But some circumstances made it better at some point
if they stayed with us,
and as daughter and the kids live in the same village
they still were their cats, but ours too.

In January 2017
we had to say goodbye to Bagheera.
Bella missed him at first very much
but then had the pleasure of finally having all our attention to herself
(because she always had been "second", after her big brother)

Dear little Bella
for your sweet company
we will all miss you very much !

10 opmerkingen:

  1. (((Els))) such a beautiful cat, she will live on in your hearts

    1. She surely will, ((Mo))
      (she got a special place in the garden today)

  2. Heel verdrietig, maar wat een mooie leeftijd . Toch zul je ze missen….

    1. Dankjewel Hannie, een prachtige leeftijd en we hebben lang van haar genoten (maar dan wil je dat het nooit ophoudt . . . :-) , maar ze stopte met eten . . .)

  3. Sending love to your family on the loss of beautiful Bella.

    1. ((Nancy)) thank you, but she was really tired, and we are at peace with it.

  4. Always so hard to lose our feline friends, although we accept that, for the most part, we will outlive them. For her to have lived so long she must have been a very happy, looked after and very much loved little cat. I hope the space she left is healing over for you all

    1. ((Kat)) thank you so much ! We still miss her, but in the end, when she stopped eating, we were just worrying, so that's come to an end too.
