Tinky (Official name Clover)
Double tragedy today, Tinky who we thought would well go before ther others as she hasn't been too clever for a while due to old age has also passed to the summerlands. She too has passed in her sleep, I sat with her as she passed and prior to that she was calling to me, she knew I was there, jusst didn't stir. I think the final straw for her was seeing her adversary Poppy go this morning. Poppy used to get bad tempered with Tinky, but really they were family despite the occasional spats.
The above photo is one of my favourites of this most loving of cats who was ferrel when she came home to live with us - that was some 23 years ago when she was a kitten. We thought she was black when she came as she had been living in some tyres, and gradually she cleaned up to black and white.
I shall miss both my girls dreadfully as over the years they have been very good company, very affectionate and always a comfort when I was sad. But at least both of them are now at peace and together in the summerland playlands.
RIP Poppy and Tinky
