This post is to honour and celebrate our beloved cat, Louie, who was killed by a car on Tuesday morning. He was a magnificent and affectionate animal who gave so much pleasure to George and me. He had a good life, as this photo illustrates, but he loved the outdoors, had his own cat door and could come and go as he pleased. Unfortunately it was this that led to his untimely demise. George buried him in the back between two pine trees, near the graves of some of our other cats, Danby and Charlie.
I've been too upset to do any postings till now. I know that when you have a pet you run the risk of heartbreak. Love for people and animals always comes at a price. But it's a price I've always been willing to pay. And I'll do it again, though not today. One thing George and I have agreed upon: the next cat will be an indoor cat!
