Lottie RIP

Lottie RIP

On 25th March 2016 our dear Lottie passed away during the night, she was 19 1/2. She had been ill for a while but seemed to be rallying. Her brother Ollie left us on 27th March last year so she outlived him by just a year.

Both cats came to us as 4 week old kittens after they had been dumped, found and rescued; and brightened our lives for nearly twenty years. We are very sad and miss her greatly, she was the most affectionate cat you could ever wish to meet.

In memory of Ollie and Lottie we now sponsor a pen with the Cats Protection League so, in their passing, other rescued cats can find hope.

They are survived by their brother Sammy, who misses all his absent brothers and sisters but has taken over the mantle of looking after their mummy and daddy and takes the job very seriously.

Now that Ollie and Lottie have left us and crossed the bridge to play in the infinite meadow, with their bodies healed, to await the time when we can be together again this will be the last post on their blog.

Many thanks to all the wonderful people who have followed their lives and left comments.


Oliver and Lottie



For Oliver

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.

The Passing of Oliver

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our dear Oliver passed away peacefully on his mummy’s lap on 27th March 2015 after suffering a catastrophic stroke during the night. He had been very ill for 3 months and we had nursed him constantly, he also had several stays at the Vets so he could have intravenous infusion of food and water.

Oliver came to us as an abandoned 4 week old kitten in October 1996, with his sister Lottie, and wasn’t expected to last a week but with lots of care and nursing he pulled through.

He made every day he was with us brighter and we miss him with all our heart. he was cremated and his ashes remain with us.

It's me again!

It’s me again!

For Felicity

REMEMBER me when I am gone away,

Gone far away into the silent land;

When you can no more hold me by the hand,

Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day

You tell me of our future that you plann’d:

Only remember me; you understand

It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for a while

And afterwards remember, do not grieve:

For if the darkness and corruption leave

A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,

Better by far you should forget and smile

Than that you should remember and be sad

My sister Felicity

My sister Felicity

The passing of our sister Flickie

Felicity2It is with heavy hearts and sad paws that we have to announce that our dear sister Felicity passed away after a short illness on Sunday morning (25th August 2013) aged eighteen and a half.

She was a beautiful cat who mastered the art of having just three paws and had a wonderful nature that all of us loved her lots and lots and looked after her. She loved washing Ollie’s ears and used to sit in the garden with Sammy.

Rescued as a kitten by Celia Hammond she had to have her badly injured left back leg amputated but came through all the traumas to be a beautiful ray of sunshine for both us cats and our staff.

She now rests by her favourite spot in our garden with a yellow rose called ‘Simply Heaven’ planted above her.

She will be in all our thoughts and memories for ever until we are all together again in that wonderful meadow where even our staff go one day.

She had over 1500 followers on Twitter who we are gradually informing as tears stream down out little noses. We miss our sister greatly and having to console our staff too is a heavy burden.



We love you always and will never forget you.

Busy Me

Sorry I haven’t been telling you of our charmed lives recently, both mummy and daddy haven’t been very well and have been seeing the human vet quite a lot. They are OK but on lots of tablets and stuff – these humans, such a fuss taking a little tablet.

Trouble is we needs our staff to put the puter on for us cos our paws are just too big to press all the buttons, fortunately my nose works quite well on the keyboard.

Spring is in the air in London and Lottie and me, plus our brother Sammy and sister Felicity will have to think about going out patrolling in the garden again now it is warmer and not snowing any more.

We each have our own chair (well Flickie and me share th sofa when we can shift the humans).

Lottie is on special medicine because she has some problems with her joints because of (shhhh – elderly cat – wink wink), but she is very good at taking it and it is doing her good.

Sammy’s had a reminder from the V. E. T. that he needs to go for his booster.

We had Hi-Life Gourmet for Christmas and have gotr the staff trained so that’s all we have now (36 tins a week – ha ha); if anything else goes down we just sit and look at it. Sammy likes his dried food but daddy has found a really yummy (and expensive) tuna kibble for him.



Daddy Forgot

I was really looking forward to mt transatlantic tea party with Winnie, and she and her mum were all ready and my naughty daddy got a long phone call and then forgot – YES forgot!!! Audible tuts. My poor Winnie was all ready and I didn’t come.

On Tuesday though we made up for it with a yummy tea party – we all had Dreamies, tuna and Nip, Winnie had cold creamies as well – oh yummy.

I have spent today resting – I did a lot of sleepies and dreamies last night so I have to rest. I woke daddy up at 7 to make sure I got my breakfast on time. Usually mummy does it cos daddy doesn’t get up in time.

I have had my sleepies next to daddy with my sister Lottie – had tuna for lunch.

Since I had my operation I have not had my collar on and daddy still hasn’t got me a new one. I think red would match my stripies nicely.
