Everything is quite strange since Scruffys passing. I know I know...he was only a cat but seriously... the house feels quite empty now. He was such a good, clean boy.. never went on the kitchen counters.. and was always ready for a fuss. He turned up on MrD's doorstep in 2004...and decided to stay. At that time the vet giving him his shots estimated he was between 5 and 7 years old. So he really was quite old. For the last week had stopped eating..could hardly drink and was just slipping away. When he started having seizures we took him to the animal hospital. But we knew it really was his time to go. We were heartbroken and we miss him so much
I miss the way he used to wait for us at the door when we came home...
sharing the occasional spoon of ice cream...
how he gave us evil looks after his bath...
and last year he even read his Christmas card from my daughter
This year we have had a different card in the mail..
from the thoughtful staff at the hospital where he died
They were so good with us.. and eased the pain of Scruffys passing..
even putting a little sign on the door to our room
RIP Mr Scruff
