    The old boy Chester and I enjoying the warmth of a fire.

    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit... It's the only way to be sure.

    Sad to say the old boy went for the great catnap in the sky yesterday.

    We came home and put away the blanket and food bowls which was very sad. Waking up to a house without a cat in it was very strange this morning as any cat owner will tell you, they won't let you get on with your day until they're fed.

    Already looking at the cats protection league website to adopt another friend.

    That's shame but I'm sure he had a long and happy innings. After mine went the bowls stayed for about 6 months, couldn't bring myself to clear them away.

    Thats sad, I feel for you Rich. Still miss my old friends over the years. However the Cats Protection is a good idea, might help to soften the blow a little and there's always a moggy in need of some love and warmth there.

    All the best

    Sorry to hear that Rich. Mine died a few years ago now and wasnt replaced. I had her for over 20 years and had few complaints. Difficult to look after an animal now so dont have one.

    Thanks guys.

    Just come back in from the local animal refuge where we've been meeting some new friends. Found a timid pair of tortoise shell cats who looked like they'd enjoy it here and a black and grey pair who were also very charming.

    Gonna sleep on it and make a decision tomorrow.

    Since losing both our old boys in the space of a year, Mrs B and I decided we wouldn't allow ourselves to get used to used to life without cats in the house and resolved to share our digs with a couple more hard luck cases immediately. So, say hello to Alfie and Rocco (their shelter names) who are currently readjusting to life on the outside having been behind bars since they arrived in the shelter in November.



    Both are 2 years old and very close, the black one is male and the grey a female. He's totally chilled and loving life in the warm. She's hyper and enjoying stretching her legs around her new place. There's been too much grief and sadness and shite for too long round here. Time that changed.
    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit... It's the only way to be sure.
