Arrival Story:
Lady Freya passed away in my arms a few months ago after a long and slow decline from cancer - she is greatly loved and greatly missed - I need to update the kitties here because all three of mine listed passed in the passed year - Thor most unexpectedly - and Prince Mordred from old age. But we have other kitties now - stay tuned.. Lady Freya was retrieved with her sister Valkeria at the Belfast cat show the same day we moved to Ireland. We had arranged to pick up the kittens at the cat show while still living in Sweden, so we flew into Dublin and a friend picked us up at the airport and we went and got them. For several years they both lived with us and then Valkeria fell in love with a close friend of mine and she went to live with her. These days, Freya is an older lady and lives full time inside as my office kitty. Really it is Freya's office, I just get to use it when she lets me. Her favorite place in the printer or the stuffed chair next to my computer. Main Coons often live into their twenties, so we hope to have her for many years to come. It is also fun in that she and her sister both share my birthday!

Bio:
While most of our cats are rescues, Lady Freya is a pedigreed Main Coon from a Cattery in the UK.

Lady Freya Enjoys Her Last Days

Lady Freya, who owns my office, I just get to use the computer underwent a serious operation about five months ago to have a lump removed, she nearly died after the surgery being about 86 in human years. Sadly it has come back even larger, so we have decided simply to enjoy each other for the time she has left.

We ordered a pet safe heating pad and I can't say enough wonderful things about them, especially for an elderly cat who probably has stage four cancer and was always shivering and cold.

Friends gave us high grade cat nip from the US that I spread on it, and Freya also has nice kitty meds from the vet that keep her feeling well. She still enjoys her food, but her favorite thing is for Mommy to stop working at the computer, lay down and read a book so she can sleep on her.

Her other favorite thing is to sit in her window, but since that's getting a bit hard to do, her favorite soft chair has been moved so she can see out.

It probably won't be long before she joins Thor and Mordred at the rainbow bridge, but I know they will all have fun together when she gets there. In life, when Freya lived outside for a few years, Mordred used to bounce about and follow her like Pepe Lepew. She never returned his advances being spayed (he was fixed too but was still in love). I like to think they will get together in the after life.

I've got a lot more than three cats and will try to get the other two elderly ones and some of the younger ones up as time permits. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying as much time as I can on that sofa - life is short, pet hard.
