I'm so sorry to post yet another sad blog, but I feel this little lady deserved a mention. This little puss cat, and she was little, she was the runt of a litter and never really grew to full size but my goodness she had the heart of a lion. she was my special furry friend and we had a very special bond. I have 3 other younger cats who I adore but there was always something special about Summer. Whenever we went away in the caravan she knew and would be so sad when I goodbye, but I'll be home soon. Luckily Claire & Craig lived at home so they made an extra big fuss of her. After Claire's wedding and blessing 2 years ago, we were so Knackered (sorry), we booked to go and see our friends in Yorkshire for a week to recuperate. Summer sensed that we were going away and was poorly shortly after we left. I hugged her and said " I love you mummy girl, and I'll be back soon ". We went to Yorkshire on the 6th June 2014 and had a phone call from Craig late that night to say Summer was really poorly. We got up very early on the 7th June and drove home. I couldn't believe what I saw. Summer looked near deaths door. The vet said all she could think was that she pined for me. I fed her with a syringe of high protein food and in 5 days she looked beautiful and almost back to normal again and this was the picture I took of her. Didn't she look good at nearly 18. I can't tell you how happy I was. Paul & I sat in the garden every evening just cuddling her in my dressing gown. I said to Paul I'm not going to go away again all the while Summer is with us, and I didn't.
2 years and one day to the day after I drove home from Yorkshire, my beautiful devoted furry friend lost her fight with old age on the 8th June 2016. She was going into her 20th year bless her. I sat up with her and held her paw till her last breath.
I miss her so much and she too has left a big hole in my life. She has now been laid to rest under our beautiful pear tree along with all our other puss cats we've loved & lost . Paul says we should think ourselves lucky that we had nearly 20 years of love cuddles and endless purrs with her, I do, but I wanted more, bless her.
I know a lot of you followed Summers recovery 2 years ago. I think I have been so lucky to have had her for all that extra time. What a beautiful little trouper.
I Miss you Sum X
