My old fella got too tired to carry on so on Monday we let him go. He was 22.
Floyd aka Flinky was a petite black and white boy that I adopted when he was 13, 9 years ago. He was one of those cats that had the stomp walk. Young scallywag toms never bothered him, even these last few years.
He was like a grandad to the kittens in the houses due to his calm manner.
It was touching at the end as all of his 4 humans had a hand on him as he drifted off.
I told him that if he comes back we'd look after him all again.
Thank you Floyd. You were a wonderful little boy. God bless you and bring you back to us soon.
What a wonderful great age u beautiful old friend when i read this post this morning i was in tears so i said i would post this eve well that didnt help im just as bad now floyd u run free we will all meet again rip floyd
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: Music and Cats
Posts: 1,867 Animals I love: I am a big animal lover but i have a special place in my 💓 for Dogs and Cats. Pets I own: I am the owner of 2 Rough Collie called Riley and Elsa and a rescue Cat Freddy. I have previousley owned 2 german spitz named Mitzi Moo and Phoebe my 2 little angelsxx gone but never forgotten xx
I have also owned a rescue Cat named Sindy - Sleep tight my beautiful girl.xx
I'm so sorry to hear of the news of Floyd heartpawprints. It doesn't matter how long we have our pets they worm their way very quickly into our hearts & when their time with us is over we have a little bit of us missing. In Floyds case, the lovely 9 years he had with you showed the care you took of him so that he could reach the marvellous age of 22 but also I suspect leaving a large hole in the lives & hearts of you & your family (human & feline)
It sounds like that he had a lovely send off & he will have been grateful for that, as well as the courage it took to take that last act of love for him.
RIP Floyd Young again at Rainbow Bridge with old & new friends.
Happy days with Roman, Osiris & Lexie (remembering Chloe & Penny)

scallywag: Shame . Enjoy it whilst you can , your a long time couped up in an office again

caz2golden: If only you could see the view from my place of work, no one would swap it Storm Bronagh has stopped work today! Could I cope being back in an office now !! I think I could get cabin fever! Then again to be dry, not too cold or hot is appealing!
