I've already posted on Facebook about Drum's passing but I wanted to mention her here too. It was through Purrs that we found Drum and her sister Bass back in September 2010 so it's fitting she should have a little tribute here.
My gorgeous girl passed away early on Sunday evening. She'd been frail and losing weight for some time but was still the bossy, crabby, sweet lady I had loved for over ten years. She died as she'd lived - dramatically and with the most attention she could get. We rang two out of hours vets but neither were doing home visits due to Covid - not that she would have lasted long enough for the vet to get here.
She spent her last minutes on the sofa, with us stroking her and kissing her. And she gave me my wish of not having to make the final decision.
I miss her tons - for a tiny, frail cat she had a huge presence and the house is weirdly quiet without her.
She sent her dad a rainbow today, maybe it was for both of us. I'm certain she's on the bridge now, running around at the speed of light like she used to.
This is the last photo I took of her, last weekend, letting Vincent sit beside her for once.
