O Wind, if Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
Tuesday, 20 June 2017
It's hard to lose our friends. We didn't have Onyx all that long, in people years; he came to live with us in 2010, when our friend Wendy passed suddenly. He has been a joy to have here. The house is empty without him, even though three cats still prowl the place; his personality filled any room he was in. This picture really captures him in a typical stance, watching for something to happen that he could be involved in.
He was in his twelfth year, but one couldn't think of him as a senior cat - he was simply too lively and playful. I guess it's not a bad age, but we certainly didn't expect to lose him yet. So long, dear friend. Thanks for all the snuggles.
