It’s been a tough 2018. I will admit that.
We said goodbye to many beloved members of the family. Too many. It was awful.
Obviously Delia was on borrowed time and her demise was sad but inevitable.
But the loss of Wu and then, in the blink of an eye, Loki, was tragic and both deaths were very unexpected and shocking.
As a family, I think we all felt very robbed as suddenly a gaping hole in our family appeared. We were not prepared.
We did our best, but failed dismally with Little Cattie, the calico cat that was given to us. She took one look at our family and left. So that was that. For those that mightnot know, Little Cattie subsequently turned up again safe and well with her previous owner where she will now remain.
So Daisy and I went on the boat south and found, or were we found (?), by Monster who said we would do and made himself at home straight away.
He managed to settle in very quickly.
and has never looked back.
So, life goes on.
The animals we lost were loved and we did our best. At the time, I always wondered if we could have done more, but in my heart I know we did all we could for them. They were loved.
So here’s to 2019 and the future. A huge thank you to everyone who reads my mumblings and for your wonderful support too. It is hugely appreciated and I ❤️ you.
May your fridge door always be open and all the food fall out, as Monster would say.
Puzzah, I forgot Puzzah. He was not with us for long but he was family in a sort of Mafia-esque way.
