saying goodbye is hard

on Thursday our lovely little cat Twiggy passed away. He had being with us for 13.5yrs.
I miss him heaps already.........the kids are real sad ..........but Ruby is broken hearted. They were the best of friends. Man its hard to see your kids hearts break like that. She loved him to pieces + I have being warning her for a year that his time was coming to a end as he was pretty old + it was going to be hard to say goodbye to him. Its amazing how animals become the extra member of the family without you even realising it. He was always there.........so faithful...........I would whistle out the window + he would come running...........he would follow us across the farm when we went for walks...........he always came to the washing line with me.........he was always waiting at the door when we came home..........he always sat with the kids while they watched tv + me + kev later at night.............and just quietly he would sit at the dining table with his little face just peeping over the top while we ate dinner..........waiting!!






We know he's already chasing the rabbits + resting in the sun in the long grass!!
We will miss you our little Twigga puss!
