A Light In Remembrance

.


Today I am remembering all my furries who have gone on to Rainbow Bridge. They are all remembered every day with such love and happy thoughts.

.


.


This is my first ever cat who was named William - he was a mighty hunter and when we opened the door after a day at work the first thing we did was hunt for his offerings to us!! He loved to roam free all day and half the night but always came home for his noms and a cuddle.
.

He died on 20th November 1991 from a severe chest infection. He is still missed so much

.

.


Then came Maxie and Emma on 22nd November 1991. The first picture is Maxie who I have to say absolutely adored me from the moment he saw me at the Cats Protection League and climbed the legs of my jeans to settle in my arms - I never looked at any other cat.

.

He was also a mighty hunter and used to collect his "girl" friend across the road and they would proceed to the local cemetery and bring offerings back to her mum and us.

.

He died on 20th November 2005 (the exact day 14 years later than William) he had stomach cancer.

.


.


Emma was chosen by my late husand on the same day as Maxie at the same shelter as Maxie. He fell in love with her on sight and she had very pretty markings. Emma also was a great hunter and always brought her presents home to us including a live rat once!! My husband ran outside and grabbed it from her before she could bring it inside to play with. The rat bit him and would not let it go and he had to hold it and and kill it to get it's teeth out of his finger. He then had to go the the doctors for a tetanus injection!!
.
After my husband died she decided I was better than nothing and transferred her affection to me but she only lived for a few months and I had to have her euthanised on 28th November 2009.
.
I put her ashes on my husband's ashes plot so they were together again.

.



.

Now Hannah and Lucy live with me - thankfuly they are not mighty hunters.
