Arrival Story:
I bought my flat partly because of the large numbers of cats in the area. I know cat owners are good people so reasoned that they would make good neighbours. This turned out to be true. I was quickly adopted by Casper, a large grumpy but lovable tabby who lived upstairs and later by his flat mate Alfie, another tabby. When Casper and Alfie's guardians moved away they realised I would badly miss their cats so they gave me Henry, at that stage a tiny eight week old kitten. It was love at first sight and we have been living happily together ever since.

Somehow Sunday was worse than Saturday but I got a lot of comfort from reading and re-reading all your comments. Thank you all so very much for your love and support through this time. When I have my worst moments I remember all you have said and it helps to know that you understand.

Josie is still a bit quiet. I woke up in the night to find her cuddled next to me and she's by my side as I type. I want to see her all mad and happy again but, like me, she's going to take time.

Best headrubs to you all


Thank you all

The first day without Henry has been even worse than I would have thought possible. He had such a big personality and was a very chatty cat so we would be talking most of the day; the flat feels very quiet. There's a massive gap in my world. It has been a real comfort to read the messages on Catster and know that fellow animal lovers are out there understanding and thank you for all his gifts. It's good to know that he will be with other Catster cats on the bridge and they'll look out for him and we'll be together again some day.

Josie does seem to be missing him. Mostly I think as a play mate as she wants to play a lot - or maybe she thinks I need the distraction. Either way I am making sure she is getting plenty of attention and love. I don't know if she'll pick up the diary baton, it's too soon to be thinking about that kind of thing. I also hope that at some point I'll be able to give a home to another homeless cat to give Josie some company. Now would be too soon as I would want it to be Henry and he was definitely a one off.

Thank you all again. Knowing you are out there and understand is definitely helping me through this.

Just had a call from the vet and Henry did not survive his injuries. I cannot take it in right now, everything was so sudden and I can't believe I won't see him again.

Josie knows something is wrong; she's wanting lots of attention right now.
