Saying goodbye is never easy, and it was very difficult tonight.

I had thought that I would have the evening to myself today – as Emma was going to go to try out a meditation class in Oxford with one of her vets so was surprised when a little after 7.15pm Emma should come through the front door. Apparently, minutes before the vets closed tonight they had a call from a lady to ask if a small black and white cat with half a black/half a white face had been found…?

Maddie, it turns out is actually called Holly and has a loving home. It was a happy ending when we returned her to her loving owners but still desperately sad for us as we’d grown to love her purring ways constant pudding-making in the air and the way that she wobbled as she walked.
