Farewell to Muffy

Goodbye dear friend – it was time to let you go.  At 20 years old, your health was deteriorating, your days were uncomfortable, walking was difficult, and we just couldn’t bear to watch you suffer any more.  So after much soul searching, the decision was made to let you go.  We held you as you peacefully slipped away, and spent some quiet time together saying goodbye.  Then we both cried together as the vet took your tiny body away to be cremated.  Sweet Muffy, you brightened our lives, and you will be sadly missed.

A happy place - curled up in front of a sunny window

Born “Acalyphia Mufasa” on 8th February 1996, Muffy was a Sealpoint BIrman and came into our lives as a beautiful active little kitten.  Full of mischief, as kittens are.  She didn’t become a “caravan cat” till much later in life, when she was 16 years old.  With a 3 month South Island trip planned, we didn’t want to leave her behind, so started to take her away in the caravan over various short trips to get her used to this life.  Her three months travelling “down south” went well, and she continued to come away in the caravan with us from then on.

We know we will expect to see you curled up in your favourite places, catch sight of you out of the corner of our eye, or maybe imagine  we hear your call.  Goodbye sweet Muffy – forever in our hearts.

What a sad day for you both. Our pets are such an important part of our lives. You were blessed to have her company for so many years.
