I have been missing in action for the past week and this has been due to the fact that Bertie was knocked over and killed in the same spot that Maudie (our other rescue cat) was killed last year.

I have decided that it's just not fair to adopt rescue cats when we have lost two. Whether or not we adopt a rescue cat that has always lived indoors is something for us to think about.

In the meantime we are all missing Bertie

So sorry to hear about Bertie, to loose a pet is like loosing a member of the family. XXX

Oh Samantha, I'm so sorry to hear about Bertie.
After losing our last 3 cats, we decided to keep Nibbler and Pixel as indoor cats.

Love Jools x

I think sometimes its a hard decision to make not to have animals that might be at risk from outside forces, but at heart you know it is the right one!

Sorry to hear about Bertie!

Oh this is so sad, I am sorry your cats have both been taken from you in such a horrid way. I believe you are right not to adopt another but indoor cats may be the answer.
Thinking about you

Oh dear, I'm so sorry Samantha :( Sending you heartfelt hugs from our house, where we lost our dear puss Dionne on Weds 4th Feb, the night before we left for our hols in France. It was traumatic and I am so sad. Her brother is very clingy and obviously doesn't know what's happened. I'm just glad my brother and SIL were able to be here to cuddle him while we were in France. Lots of love Jen
