Black Cat Appreciation Day: My Sweet Tuxedo Girl

This is my sweet Tuxedo girl, Suzy. I’ve written about her before on my blogs and she is also the heroine of one of my books, The Snowflake Pendant

Suzy wasn’t a rescue kitten as my younger brother bought her from a pet shop (this was the 80s, and I wouldn’t purchase a cat these days). She was the most adorable fur baby, so sweet and affectionate. I quickly became her mummy, but she loved all the family equally I believe. But I guess she was closest to me because I have that effect on cats, I’m pleased to say!

I had her for 13 years as she passed over the Rainbow Bridge back in June 1998. I still miss her everyday.

Sunday Selfie: World Pet Memorial Day

For World Pet Memorial Day I want to share some photos of my dear beloved Suzy, my first soulmate cat.

She was with me from 1985 until 1998, from my teens and all the way through my 20s. I grew up with her. And she grew up with me. She was a precious Tuxedo kitty, beautiful, affectionate, sweet, loving, cute, loved to go out early to watch and hunt birdies.

She loved napping on our beds and she loved music. My brother’s guitar playing and my singing didn’t seem to bother her.

June is her anniversary month. The anniversary of her passing. Most of my posts during this month will be dedicated to her.

Rest In Peace, my sweet Suzy.

One day we shall meet again, I am sure xxxxx

Thoughtful Thursday: Speak Up For Cats #TrueCostOfKittens

Kittens need your help!

Protect kittens bred for sale

Cats Protection is calling for a change in the law to prevent the sale of sick and underage kittens.

Why is this law needed?

Kittens that are sick and far too young to be separated from their mother are being sold by those who are more interested in money than the welfare of animals. The law in the UK needs to change in order to prevent the sale of these sick and underage kittens. The Government is reviewing the law governing the sale of pets for the first time in over 60 years.

Cats Protection wants better safeguards for the commercial sale of all types of cats across the board whether they are non-pedigree ‘moggies’ or pedigrees.

Cats Protection is calling for:

  • prohibition on sales of kittens under eight weeks
  • closure of legal loopholes that allow repeat commercial breeding for sale from the family cat or cats
  • a clear definition of commercial pet sales to protect the welfare of cats and kittens
