And then I found gentle, old Tigger. He stayed with us for 4 years and reached the age of 19 years and 6 months, - he passed away last year, on the anniversary of the day I first went to see him - October 7th. My boys liked their anniversaries clearly! He and Castle were extremely close - just like Castle and Storm were, it was incredible how they bonded.
I feel so lucky to have had such beautiful, little feline souls share my home and life...it all feels very empty at the moment...quiet. I will adopt some more feline friends in the future, but I am taking some time to remember the ones that have been part of my life for almost 20 years. When Storm died my grief was suppressed by my search for a friend for a grieving and pining Castle, to ensure he was happy; and the same happened again when Timmy died, and when Tigger died I knew in my heart that Castle probably wouldn't be around for much longer, so I didn't look for another furry friend for him, I instead decided to spend much more time at home, keeping him company and loving him as much as possible. Now I grieve for them all...
It all started with Storm and Castle though, two adorable, little kittens that stole my heart the minute I saw them way back in 1996. Rest in Peace my little Angels, I imagine you are playing together once again now...with Timmy and Tigger joining in too. You really won't ever be forgotten. Ever x
