    That's true :blue thumb:

    Although Oscar has been gone few years I still occasionally seem him out of the corner of my eye when I'm working or wandering around the garden. He's making sure that everything is still OK. :)

      I feel so sad for all who posted on this thread. It's devastating when a pet passes on. Not everyone understands ... I do.

      When my Blodyn died suddenly 3 years ago, someone showed me this ...

      The Feline Spirit

      And God asked the feline spirit
      Are you ready to come home?
      Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
      And, as a cat, you know I am most able
      To decide anything for myself.

      Are you coming then? asked God.
      Soon, replied the whiskered angel
      But I must come slowly
      For my human friends are troubled
      For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

      But don't they understand? asked God
      That you'll never leave them?
      That your souls are intertwined, for all eternity?
      That nothing is created or destroyed?
      It just is....forever and ever and ever.

      Eventually they will understand,
      Replied the glorious cat
      For I will whisper into their hearts
      That I am always with them
      I just am....forever and ever and ever.

      Here is Blodyn (that is the Welsh word for a flower)

      034.jpg

      She was 6 yrs old and died from a clot of blood that blocked the arteries to her legs.
      I can not look at her grave. I end up in tears every time I try to do it.
      I am in tears now too lol ! I'll have to leave for a bit ... :smile:

        My two boys left me this January 2016. Phantom in the front a sudden heart attack and his forever buddy two weeks later. Panther in the back. They both would always be together in the gardens, napping etc. following each other. The sweetest thing to watch, seeing them look behind for each other. Miss them so much still.always together..jpg

          That was devastating @redstar to loose the two in such a short time. They look like real pals and I know they were your pals too :smile:

              We had to take our Millie on a one way trip to the Vets this morning as she had gone down hill this weekend with spreading Cancer and other problems but she had a contented 13 years with us coming to us as a rescue cat at about 3 years old. I often seemed to post on here with her sitting on my lap.
