(Sir) Toby

Journal


After my brother's sudden death (my brother's rose)  the family had a big problem: his 16 year old cat "Toby". (I'm sure you already guess the end of the story.) His daughter's couldn't take the cat, so I decided to adopt him. That was the last thing I could do for my brother! After a long drive in a small box poor Toby found himself in a strange house with strange furniture, strange people and strange smells and he was totally destressed. The first days he spent most of the time behind our sofa. (Meanwhile he discovered more comfortable places for his naps!) To make it even worse I noticed that his airways were not clear, so the first thing I had to do: take him to the vet! He got an antibiotic and an expectorant and his breathing sounds much better now. After living with us for more than one week I have the impression that he's feeling quite fine, in the last days he started to explore the complete house. I'm sure that he's still missing his beloved owner and his old home but I would love to keep him for a while, he's very calm and affectionate and he loves cuddling (and somehow he's a part of my brother that is still around)!
After Terry's death our house had changed into a house for humans only, for three months we had a really nice livingroom, and now: cat blankets on the sofa and on the window sill, Toby's old big cat tree at the wall, a cat toilet in the kitchen...
- and suddenly I realized that I had missed a cat in my life!

Sorry for the loss of your brother Ingelore... May he rest in peace.

The rest of the story is sooo you Heart Nod !! Of course Toby will and can never be a replacement for Terry, but Toby being a reminder to you for both your brother and Terry is where it all comes together ;) (Wink) !

Since we all know cats decide who's the boss, your "new" arrival must be a highly intelligent and sensible one :D (Big Grin) !

Ik hope you can and will be able to enjoy eachother for some more years now Love !!

Best regards, and keep up your great work,

Fred
