Two years ago today we lost Dash Kitten in a dog attack. He had been blogging with a passion, and was neck deep on social media making an host of friends, people we still love and value today. He was a member of the #wlf and proudly wears its beret. Thank you to The Cat on My Head for this chance to join our our fellow blog hoppers for the Sunday Selfie.

Peanut and Marjorie at Dash Kitten
Mum and Peanut, New Year’s Day 2011

In Memoriam. On Saturday 5th of September 2015 we lost lady Peanut our cat of 19 happy and joyful years. Ann Adamus created a beautiful memorial graphic that will be our Feature Image for the Celebration of Peanut post we will work on, with pictures going back to 1998. You celebrate that which you love; so Peanut will be celebrated with great joy and love. We will miss her more than any words can say.

    We are sad that you had to say good-bye to your precious girl, Peanut. You recently e-mailed letting us know how fragile she had become. We know you gave her nineteen amazing years of love, food , shelter and friendship. That is truly worthy of celebration. She was one of the lucky ones! May she rest in peace. We are sending you our love and condolences.
