Today we share some memories of Dusty our road tripping cat we are thankful for.
We are thankful that we adopted Dusty as a frail senior. In spite of his age, Dusty inspired us to make road movies that people all over the world continue to enjoy.
Dusty was a big inspiration for our continuing movie-making journey. Dusty was part of our Middle Earth Monday travel series.
Please enjoy one of my favourites ever films and enjoy the fun we had and the love this little old guy gave to us. Memories of Dusty can also be seen at Rivendell, and Petone Beach!
Thank you for allowing us to show off one of our favourite movies.
Movies and Memories of Dusty
One year ago on 24th May 2017 Dusty cat took his leave of the Dash Kitten family. He left on his own terms while resting on the sofa at home. We feel it’s nice to celebrate his life today in the selfies with the Kitties Blue.
Dusty was adopted as a senior when a friend could not take him to her new rental. We gladly took him on and thought he might have a few months with us. It turned out he had nearly two years!
Dusty had been discovered early on his final day looking unwell. He was laid near his favourite bolt hole. He let Mum carry him to the sofa. This is how we knew he was ready to go – he never let himself be picked up – the cat knew his own mind.
Dusty was an inspiration and a lot of work as an ill senior, but we never regretted taking him on, not for a single moment. He was a much loved member of our family and he is always thought of with a smile.
Senior cats bring so much joy, if you want to adopt, please consider one. You will remember Dusty’s famous and much loved movie adventures to Eastbourne, Petone and Rivendell. The Eastbourne trip was a Nose to Nose video finalist this year, much to our surprise!
Please join us, and the Sunday Selfie crew as we celebrate our friends and family.
