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

Sunday Selfies

Tuxie Tuesday

In honour of National Black Cat Day here is a photo of my late black n white ‘tuxie’ cat Suzy. Regular readers and followers will know that Suzy is my other soul cat, my first. She was a precious girl, came into my life as a tiny 6-week-old kitten and stayed with me for 13 years until I had to have her put to sleep when she got too sick.

She was so sweet, so lovable, so affectionate. I shall never forget her.

Rest in Peace my beautiful sweet angel xxxx

Caturday Art: Forever in My Heart

On the 29th June 1998 I had to have my beloved black and white cat Suzy put to sleep. She was  just 13 years old (in cat years she was in her 60s).

I shall never forget this beautiful, loyal and affectionate little girl. She was the candle that lightened up my darkest days. She helped me grow, to learn to love, to see what really mattered in life, and to pick myself up and carry on. I wrote about her in great detail in my memoir The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me

Suzy's Memory Box

My little memory box containing some of Suzy’s fur, a whisker  I found some days after she passed and her name /address tag. You can’t see it clearly I know. Sorry about that.

Throwback Thursday: Suzy

So today is Hug Your Cat Day, but I’m sure cat parents/owners like me believe you should hug your cat every day. As I was planning to feature my beautiful Suzy for today’s Throwback Thursday post, I thought I’d also dig out an old photo of me hugging my first true soulmate cat.

My younger brother John bought Suzy from a pet shop in 1985 (I know, but things were different then and we were so young. I would never buy a kitten or cat or any pet from a shop now when there are so many waiting to be adopted).

We bonded straight away and Suzy soon saw me as her mother and she became my precious fur baby. She was also my best friend and saw me through many dramas that were part of my life’s journey from a 19 year old right through my 20s until she left me for the Rainbow Bridge in June 1998. So much had changed through my life then, so many emotional struggles and ups and downs (as it is with most people) that I had to experience (and I tell it all in my memoir The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me)

I believe Suzy helped me a lot. In so many ways.

Thank you, sweet darling Suzy. I will never forget you. You are always in my heart xxxxxxx
