My old pets

Post by Helen_Davis » Sat February 16th, 2013, 2:57 pm

There are cats I had when I was a little girl growing up.

Felix/Felicity. I grew up with her but she died when I was 8.

BTW, the pink stand was built by my grandpa. He was an engineer, he loved to fix and build things.

I love that your grandfather built the cats' pedestal - so neat! They're adorable, and now I must scoop up my Gossamer kitten and give him some nuzzling.

They're gorgeous, Helen. It's lovely that you have such fond memories of them.

We had a lovely black cat called Inky when I was a little girl. Whenever I was feeling unwell he would always come and sit with me. He lived until he was 18. I have my own black cat now called Harry who is equally as handsome.
