My Fur Babies
I would like to share with you one of my favourite photographs of my two adorable 'fur babies', Lilo and Stitch. The picture was taken 9 years ago when they were kittens. Sadly we don't have Stitch anymore. He died very suddenly last February. For a long time after, I wasn't able to look at pictures like this, because it just broke my heart. I still miss him terribly and I'm sure I always will, but I'm finally at the stage when I can look at my photographs without bursting into tears!
Lilo (the tabby & white) is still going strong and I think she's actually enjoying being the only cat in the house after years and years. Her brother and our other male cat, Rupert (also deceased) used to gang up on her and I think she felt as if she was at the bottom of the pecking order. She is much less nervous these days, although she still automatically looks over her shoulder before she starts eating, and she insists on me putting her food bowl in a specific place on the kitchen floor near the door, presumably so that she can make a hasty exit if another cat approaches.
In the early days the kittens often slept curled up together like this. When they grew up though, they were not as close. I don't think Lilo really missed Stitch at all after he died, but of course it's impossible to know for sure what animals are thinking.
