Our darling Lulu (2000-2012)

This morning Lulu went peacefully to sleep, ending a battle with cancer that has been ongoing for the last 6 months. It was a really hard decision, and although we know it was the right one and we've been preparing for this for weeks now, it still hurts terribly to lose our beautiful girl.


She really was a special cat, so gentle and loving. Always there to give us a purr and sit on our laps. Always ready to play, catch a bug or fight a bit of string.


She even moved round the world and back again with us.


She's been battling with cancer in her mouth for a while now and it got to the stage where she couldn't feed herself and no longer would let us feed her.


 We'll miss her.

  5. poor girl, what a horrible cancer. You can take heart that you did all for her and didn't let her suffer. I think that is our greatest responsibility as per owners.
    thinking of you.

  13. A lovely goodbye post. You guys hung on longer than many of us would and that's something to be proud of. I'm glad I got a chance to meet her before she got too sick. She was such a beautiful little girl. I still remember the first visit where I was having trouble telling her and Sarah apart. It was so sad to be able to easily work out who was who more recently. Sounds like it was her decision to go though, not yours. Hope that helps a little.

  20. I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is just awful. We hugs ours so much every day now they are getting older and you always have in the back of your mind that they might not be around much longer. :(
