Bye bye baby...




I had one hell of a weekend last week. It was really shitty to be honest. Out of the blue my cat Buzz got poorly, on Friday evening. He just didn’t look right. If you have a pet you’ll know what I mean by that. Then on Saturday morning he was looking really wrong. We decided he probably had a bad tooth because he was dribbling a bit and smelled a bit too. I took him to the vet right away and when she said ‘his teeth are fine’ my heart sank because I just knew something wasn’t right. She felt his stomach and it turns out he had a rather huge tumour in there. Luckily for Buzz, it seems to not have troubled him too much up until Friday night. She told me he was in a lot of pain and that we had to decide what to do for him. Basically, there was no choice for us. He was in pain and I didn’t want him to carry on in pain just because I didn’t want to be without him.

We were there with him right until the end and it was a hugely traumatic experience for both of us. The thing is he was actually Brian’s cat- I just completely took over when I moved in with him 5 years ago! Brian had already had Buzz for about 5 years before I came along. We are both utterly gutted by this and keep looking at the patio doors as we would normally to check and see if he was there waiting to come in. I seem to be spending a lot of time crying over him and wishing he was back on the sofa with me, begging for my dinner! Or sunbathing on the windowsill, or waking me up in the morning by sneaking upstairs and moaning at me from behind my door. Or strolling up the lawn to come and get pampered on the decking. I just miss him so much!

Here are some photos of Buzz doing what he did best- lolling around and looking stunningly gorgeous! I loved my little boy and I won’t stop just because he’s gone.

Here he is being silly on the decking!

This is one where I tried to HDR him. (Even though he was looking grumpy!)

This is from my old phone, so not so good, but he loved sleeping like this next to me on the sofa!

And here he is getting annoyed at me taking more pictures:

Buzz was just an amazingly cool cat and I will miss him forever. I have put more pictures on my Flickr page here.
