Pickle....

Good afternoon everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Well it's another sad day here for us.

This morning I had to make the sad decision to say 'Goodnight' to my other cat Pickle.


Some of you may know that we lost her sister 'Onion' in February due to a short illness.

Pickle had epilepsy and arthritis and had also suffered several strokes during her earliest fits but she was a fighter and it never altered her appetite.....only her Meow which seemed to vanish and was replaced by 'Aaachh' whenever she wanted anything......Bless her!!! 

Anyway she became ill yesterday and I didn't want her to suffer.

It was a very difficult decision to make but I know it was the right one.....even though it doesn't feel like it at the moment.

Here she is with her partner in crime 'Bertie'.


And below impatiently waiting for her tea.....

she had a mind here to inform me in no uncertain terms that she didn't like the salmon treats I had bought her, where upon we had a long conversation about contributing to the household finances with her 'Pickle Pounds & Pennies' from the 'Pickle Pension Fund'.
 


How dare you!
 
Amused she was not....

look at that grumpy face.....

We will all miss her and I know I will be lost without my 'Girls'.......


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

What sad news, I'm so sorry to hear this Debbie. It's never easy to say goodbye to a beloved Pet when they are such a valued part of the family - it sounds (and looks) like Pickle was a real character.
Take care.
