And then there were 2: the passing of a Smudge…

Posted: 8 May 2011 in life

Tragic news to blight the morning…one of my 3 cats has passed away suddenly…

Smudge didn’t come in overnight, which wasn’t anything unusual, and so I wasn’t too concerned. But then came the knock at the door from the neighbours earlier this morning – enquiring whether I was missing one of my grey and white cats…

Smudge was lying quite peacefully by the neighbours’ shed. Wet, stiff, a fleck of of blood on her lip, no life in the once-oh so lively eyes. In all probability she was clipped by a car whilst crossing the lane outside the house and then continued on as far as she could.

It’s not been a good time over the last few months. In the proper scheme of life Smudge would never been living here and certainly wouldn’t have died here.

Smudge has been laid to rest at the top of the garden. Her sisters Merlot and Pinot have sniffed around her and realised that no longer will there be 3 of them to drive me potty.

And then there were 2…
