Dusty, 28 Feb 2007 - 17 Sep 2021 Domestic short-hair International cat of mystery
Came to us as a rescued feral kitten via our vet Lived in Randburg (Johannesburg) for her first 7 years, putting up with another cat and a succession of dogs. Then flew to London (arrived in the UK 11/04/2014) to live the next 7 years with a couple of humans and another cat, and eventually (once my daughter took her cat to her new house) the best: just one human and no other cats or dogs. Plenty of windows to let in sunlight to follow around during the day, plenty of cushions, chairs and beds to occupy when not sunny.
In August she began to display signs of what turned out to be a tumour under her tongue made it increasingly difficult to eat and drink. She was alert and active (though weak) until the end. So I was able to give her lots of attention in the last days. But it's hit me hard.
