Bye Bye Tinkie

Less than a year ago DJ held little Tinkerbell on his lap.
She was an endearing kitten and an adept acrobat.
DJ built her a climbing frame so that she could see the great outdoors...
...and we had to put chains on the windows to stop her climbing out of the top floor.
She played happily with this little fluffy green ball and took it all around the house for people to find and throw for her. I shall keep it safe.

At about 8pm tonight she followed the blackbird over the road outside and got run over. She made it back to the yard and a friend came to tell us he had seen her coming home. She died in my arms. She will be awfully missed by both of us.

Oh, Gillian, such very sad news about your gorgeous kitty. I'm so sorry, it's truly horrible to lose a much loved pet and especially in those circumstances. Take care.

Oh no! I am so sorry for you and for wee little Tinkie too. She was an amazing and happy part of your family. It is my firm belief that there cannot be an after-life without our critters. Hugs to you and Dave.
