I haven’t been fishing for a couple of weeks - a long time for me. After my last trip out chasing pike and grayling I returned home where I’m normally met by my cat, eager to sniff my kit, hands and most importantly the net - but she didn’t appear.
On one of the sofas she was breathing rapidly and unable to move much. A long night and I phoned the vet the moment they opened, an emergency appointment followed by a very long four days in an oxygen tent - but unfortunately they couldn’t save her.
I know to some people ‘it’s just a cat’
but I’m gutted, I miss her greatly, I thought we’d have a least another 10 years together. Nothing to do with fishing but as she occasionally appeared on here and in Jack’s Pike, and meant so much, I couldn’t resist a few photos.
Sorry to hear that Brian :( love that 2nd pic.ReplyDelete
They are family. The greatest thing about animals is that they live in the moment, not worrying about yesterday or tomorrow. Rest in peace kitty cat.ReplyDelete
A friend ask if I worked from home, which I mostly do - so you’ve been together day and night since you’ve had her? You haven’t spent that much time with a human in your adult life - so I realise why I’m gutted and it’s kind of OK. A trip hazard at worse, a best mate at best, I’m glad we had our time together. Wouldn’t change it.Delete
hey man,it's never 'just a cat'.my thoughts go with you.grant.ReplyDelete
They are family, built in entertainment and unpredictable like kids! My empathy goes out to you.ReplyDelete
Thanks. And yeah she was very unpredictable!Delete
She wasn't 'just a cat', being gutted is just normal and it's good to cry if you want to. She sounded and looked lovely and I'm sure you gave her a nice home and great life. Remember her always and never let go.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kate, she will never be forgotten.Delete
are you thinking of getting another bait tester?ReplyDelete
No, don’t think so. I only ended up with Aeko because she was really aggressive and no one else would take her (she soon calmed down in her new life).Delete
