Meet Cedric & Mushroom

It been a ridiculously long time, since the last time I posted something here. You know how it gets sometimes, you neglect your blog for a while, but the stories and the photos keep building up and before you know it your a couple of months later and you sit down on a sunday evening and just decide to start.

So, let me start and the part that has changed my life in the last couple of months. As you might have read here back in March, I had to part with my sweet friend Brandy after 16 years of companionship. Losing someone, even though if it’s your pet, is so hard and the weeks that followed you noticed how empty the house is when you come home, or when sitting on the couch at night while watching tv.

But then my cousin, told me that her boyfriends cousins cat (do you still follow?), was expecting kittens. Since it was still a couple of weeks, I still had time to think about it. But then on May 18th, I got a message that 6 kittens were born. 3 weeks later my boyfriend & I got in the car, “Just to have a look”….. hahaha!

Like who could ever go and have a look at kittens and then just leave…. So 15 minutes later Andy & I were both sitting with a tiny fur ball in our hands.

When I saw Mushroom I knew that she was meant to be in my life and Andy chose one of the ginger males, and called him Cedric.

Since the end of July Cedric & Mushroom have been living with us and every single day we’re having so much fun with them. So I think you can expect some (or a lot) of kitty photos now and then.

Ode to my Brandy

Dear (Blog)friends,

As you could read in one of my more recent post, lady luck did not smile upon me when this year started. However hard to deal with the breaking of precious things, in the end stuff is stuff and with money you can get your stuff repaired or replaced.

It was a whole other story when I had to take my dear Brandy to the vet, when I thought she had a small infection and it turned out to be a uncureable tumor, with the message of “days maybe weeks” and tears in my eyes I left the vet.

The days that followed I cherished my time with Brandy, and made sure that everybody in my family got the chance to say their goodbyes to her. Luckily the days turned into weeks and I have been happy and thankful to have those last moments with her.

Unfortunaltely, irreversible means in this case irreversible, and at one point I had to make the hardest decision of my life, on someone else’s life.

Goodbye my dear friend, I will never forget you!
