Goodbye Old Friend

This handsome fellow is Chuckles. Our tough little alleycat passed away today and we will miss him terribly.

Named for his long curved mouth that always stayed in a smile. Rescued by my husband from a cattery along with his daughter Flower. They were rehomed together after being trapped inside a high rise flat along with far far too many other cats. When he came to my husband the vet said he was suffering from depression. In time he became himself again, a loving, friendly scamp.

In the past Jay nursed him through a bad case of cat flu, wrapping him up in a blanket and putting him near a hot water bottle until he was better.

He was our very own Slinky Malinki. I don't know of any other cat that could stand down an Alsatian with a slow stalk and a penetrating stare.

So to take a quote from one of our favorite books....

'He was cheeky and cheerful,
friendly and fun,
he'd chase after leaves
and he'd roll in the sun.'

(Slinky Malinky by Lynley Dodd)

You will be remembered with love Chuckles. Sleep tight xx


  1. I'm sorry, Katy! Pets truly become part of our family and it's hard when they are no longer here.

  2. He looks like a fine kitty. My sympathy to your family

  3. It's a sad time when we have to say goodbye to our pets.
