Rest in peace Raffles

Our cat Raffles died today. I don’t have much to say except he was a good friend and he was loved.

  2. Oh man, I’m so sorry to hear this. It is unbearably heartbreaking when they go. I hope only it was a peaceful event, no pain, and may the memories live long.

    • Thanks mate. He’s been in hospital for a few days after going off his food. He was struggling to breathe this morning so they put him in an oxygen tent. They brought in a specialist but despite their best efforts he went quietly.
      He was a rescue cat who has been with us 13 years. A special little lad.

      • When they say “Thanks, but no more food,” it’s the end. 13 years is going to leave a huge hole. My thoughts are with you.

      • I understand all too painfully well. They are the beautiful gifts in our lives, these amazing fur friends. ❤

    • Thanks Cindy, it’s a bit strange without him in the house. My other cat Millie has been wandering around looking for him.

  6. Losing a friend is hard – especially a friend that gives unconditional love and acceptance, and always takes away your favorite spot on the couch!
    Take care!

    • Thanks. There is more room now. He was an affectionate cat, especially with Mrs B. He’d come running when she called him and at the same time every night would sit at the top of the stairs calling out, telling her it was bedtime.
