Pushkin – RIP

Sad news my friends, my Pushkin has gone. I can’t write much right now, I’m still too upset but such is the modern world that it’s easier to tell people here quickly rather than lots of calls etc.

I’m not sure what happened to him, the person who found him thought he’d been hit by a car. He looks beautiful still though, just like he’s napping.

Work were great and let me leave early and the bf has finished his work early to come and be with me.

It’s really weird though because I’d seen a friend’s kitten – she’d had problems finding a home for it – on Saturday and had fallen in love with him. I’d had these ideas that Pushkin would teach him to hunt, but it’s not to be. I’m still going to have the kitten – he’s going to be called Oscar – but I’ll still miss my Push.

    Oh, Marie, I am so sorry to hear about Pushkin. I hope you are doing okay.

    Hi Marie,
    We have this date in common…
    At the same time as you lost your beautiful cat, I was loosing my friend Daisy. I don’t know if you are a dog lover as well as a lover of cats, but she was a border collie cross (cross bred with something with long legs, perhaps a lurcher). She was a rescue dog and although about 11 years old, I only had her for 4 years. She was a very quiet, sedate dog, who only tollerated her family and other adults. She definately didn’t want anything to do with other dogs!
    She had only been sick for about a week, but during that time, it became apparent that she had a brain tumour, she didn’t know me by the end!
    Just as you are missing your Pushkin, a good friend, I am missing my Daisy—
    Sending you hugs
