I don’t know why I bother telling myself time and time again that I will, under no circumstances, come home from a book festival with anything more than a list of books to be procured over the next few months because this is inevitably what happens….
Expect much more procrastination to come
“When you are used to hearing purring and suddenly it’s gone, it’s hard to silence the blaring sound of sadness”
~ Missy Altijd
The sound has been deafening too, you don’t realise how often you look to see where the cat is until it’s no longer there to see.
I miss my little boy, and I always will, but I’m a big believer in things happening for a reason, and that the right little Kitteh would find us when the time was right.
I just didn’t realise how fast that would be.
The day after we said goodbye we stopped at the cattery where he should have been going to stay that day so we could tell them about his passing.
As we chatted, we helped remove three young kittens from their mum for the first time.
The mum had been rescued from the threat of death due to being pregnant, and the kittens, subject to health and blood checks were available for adoption.
We left, and we waited.
Now the handsome little boy we fell in love with that day has come to live in the flat.
Everyone, give a big lolcat ‘oh hai’ to Pockets……
