RIP Mr Fish
My beloved cat, my best friend and sidekick Mr Fish was found dead by neighours in the early hours of Friday morning. He had been missing since Thursday night and we put out missing cat signs on Saturday morning and within minutes got several phone calls with various bits of information about what happened to him. I can’t even begin to describe the pain and emptiness I am feeling right now, he was my life companion right from a kitten and for the last 7 years and when I was at home (or outside by the square in recent months) he literally was always by my side - wanting to sit with me, cuddle, watch me if I was cooking or doing something that didn’t allow lap space, sit on my papers and chase my loose wires and ties and always knowing when I was sad and giving me extra cuddles. Even when I felt most alone, I always felt ok as I had my best friend beside me at all times.
He was the most happy, relaxed, charismatic, friendly, playful, funny, patient and loving cat, and everyone who met him, cat person or not, was touched by him and intoxicated by his charisma, comedy moments and loving nature. I will always miss you Fishy, and am so so grateful for the time I had with you.
