Goodbye Gorgeous Girl


Last week I had to make the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to my beautiful Bella. My girl has been with me since she was a tiny 0.5kg kitten and has kept me company for the last 18 years. Bella was in my life before I even met my husband. She has featured on this blog many times as my 'Constant Crochet Companion'. In fact, she was just my constant companion, following me everywhere from the clothesline to the loo. She had so many lovely habits and character traits - in my mind she was just perfect. She had the greatest knack of knowing just when you were spreading out a pattern on the floor to cut out, or taking a photo of crochet for my blog and always plonked herself down right in the middle, even if she had been fast asleep in another room, it was hilarious.

I am so lucky to have had her in my life for such a long time and I'm very grateful that in her last moments she was surrounded by love with our whole family, in our home and not in pain.

Her presence is missed deeply and I find myself still coming into the house and calling out to her.

So this post is in memory of Bella and her life with me.






 





 









 





 



Bella's first day with me back in 1999.

I miss you darling girl.

  1. Oh no, saying goodbye to a pet is so heartbreaking. I can still start sobbing over loozing or little black crazy Willem, and we've lost her 5 years ago!! So sorry for your loss.

  5. I've only just stumbled on your blog so I know it's a long time ago but it's lovely that bella had a happy family life with you. It's obvious you adored her and she adored you.

    I had a ginger Tom called homer who was over 20 when he died. That was a couple of years ago now. I still think of him. Like bella, he knew a good awkward spot when he saw one.
    It's good to know there are lots of people in this world that care about their animals and have love to share..

  6. Such a beautiful creature! I am sorry for your loss.
    When I lost my cat, I kept listening to Chas and Dave sing this song: "I Miss You Girl".
    Find it on YouTube, it is a good song. Of course, it is about a real girl but somehow, it made me feel better. x

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I too had to say goodbye to my constant kitty companion Polly a few years ago. She was 20 years old when she passed peacefully. So we can consider ourselves blessed to have been given so many wonderful years of fun, cuddles, and unconditional love❤. Sending love and hugs your way.

  14. Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.

    There's always something great to watch with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Choose from popular movies and full seasons of hit TV shows. Enjoy a wide variety of choices, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids & Family, Documentaries, and more. Plus, there are never any commercials.

    While seeing generally, if you are looking for more content and entertainment, you can go for Hotstar. If you are always exploring something new to watch, you can go for Netflix. If you want to have the common ground between this two, you can opt for amazon prime.

  21. In today's world, elder care is the favoured option. These are widely accepted in countries with a significant elderly population. Because of the comfort they feel there, most senior citizens prefer to stay with their families or in familiar regions of their own homes. The best part is that, thanks to technological advancements and modernism, the elderly are no longer compelled to enter a nursing home or hospital.
