It’s almost 12 weeks since my Spider died (on 2nd September), and I’m only just coming to terms properly with him not being around anymore. I still cry every other day, missing him like crazy, and having moments of disbelief that he’s really gone. But the good thing is that his twin bro Lugosi has recovered ok from his own grief – he was so depressed and totally unresponsive for about 2 weeks, and he also had a nasty urinary tract infection that took two long courses of antibiotics to cure. But now he is back to his normal self, if not more cuddly and clingy than before (which is understandable).
I am concentrating on him and my girl Ruby now, and on keeping only the good and wonderful memories of Spider alive, even though the whole process of putting him to sleep and him dying in my arms will forever haunt me. Here I am in tears again, just thinking about that! 🙁
Anyway…. here is a video of the little “Spidertree” that I dedicated to him, and some piccies of him with me and his siblings. Rest in peace, my beautiful boy. I miss you and love you, always.
I decided to dedicate the mini pine tree I got today to my boy Spider, who was sent to the Rainbow Bridge on 2nd September. Missing you so so much, my sweetie, LOVE YOU, ALWAYS. 🎄🐾💔😢🌈🌈🌈😢💔🐾🎄 #cats #rainbowbridge🌈 #tabbies #tabbycats #gatos #katzen #ilovecats #kitties #pets #animals #grief #grieving #bereavement #catstagram #catsofinstagram #catlover #catlady #madcatlady #forever #crazycatlady #catsoflanzarote #seniorcat #oldcat #mycats #catlife #meow #lettinggo #curepetcancer2017 #pinetree #inmemory
Spider with his bro Lugosi back in London, when they were about 2 years old.
Spider in March 2017 – he was still so active and playful for an almost 18 year old cat!
Ruby, Lugosi & Spider – I miss seeing this cute threesome together!

One of the last photos of my 3 kattens together, Spider at the back… R.I.P. my gentle boy. 🙁
I hope that this is what Spider would think…. Rest in peace, my sweet little boy.
Missing you and loving you forever.
In memory of my amazing SpiderCat – I miss you so much, my baby. It’s hurts so bloody much to not have you here ever again. 🙁 🙁 🙁
It’s almost a year that 10 month old Buster was killed by a car – this is a video from last year, bless his little paws, he was such a character!
My neighbours just lost their 10 month old ginger tom Buster, whom you probably know from previous posts and pictures on this blog.
He was run over by a car last weekend, and after putting up posters on Monday, they got a call from someone saying that they had found him dead in the street on Saturday evening. He was normally locked in at night, but didn´t return that evening.
I am so very sad about this, and so sorry for my neighbours´ loss – Buster was always around when I opened my front door, and he frequently “invaded” my apartment with his unique character and cheekiness, and would play with my 3 cats.
I miss him very much, but at the same time, I feel like I want to celebrate his life and all the joy and laughs and silliness that he gave us, and I feel grateful that he was in our lives, however short his time was on this Earth.
Here´s the video again that I made of him last month, and a few photos. Rest in Peace, sweetie. 🙁
Buster and Spider
My best friend Anneke had to face the hardest task any animal lover can ever think of – she had to have Luca, one of her friendly ferals that she had looked after on her patio for about 4 years, put to sleep yesterday.
He had a malignant, progressive and incurable cancer of the nose and the tissue was already half eaten away, and there was nothing more our vets could do, and it was the kindest thing to let him go. He held on though, his little heart wouldn´t stop beating, and our vet Vanessa had to inject him into the heart in the end. It´s just so unbelievably sad, and I´m sending my most heartfelt hugs again to Anneke as I write this, once again in tears.
Luca was a very gentle soul, never demanding, always shy and sweet, and over the years, Anneke´s TLC turned him from being totally feral into a mellow kitty that we could even pet a little, and he returned this affection with a little head bump each time. As sad as his death may be, we like to think that for a feral he had a good life, his own bed and shelter, food every day and lots of TLC, whether he wanted the latter or not, plus in the later stages of his cancer, Anneke also got him the veterinary care that he needed, even though we knew that this kind of cancer was eventually going to end up “worst case scenario”.
Rest in peace, little guy. You´ll be always in our hearts.

Today was not a good day to die, but Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock in Star Trek (amongst lots of other things in his 50 year acting career), sadly did pass on…
Along with Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Spock has been my childhood hero all my life, since I first watched the original Star Trek series in around 1974 (I was 8 then), so this news is very sad for me and did make me cry a little, I must admit. My blessings and positive thoughts go out to the family and close friends of this amazing man – he lived long and prospered, but now he must rest in peace….
He was approx. 23 years old and had an amazing, long life for a cat.
Visitors to Lanzarote will have known him as a fixture on the Avenida (beach front) at the FunSun shop near Centro Atlantico, where he spent most of his life lying around in the sun under the palm trees, and greeting people with a friendly meow and plentiful purrs.
When the shop closed in around 2007, shop manager Andrea took him home with her so he could live out the rest of his days at a house in the country, in peace. Thanks so much to Andrea for looking after him when no one else would have done so, and bless Manolo´s sweet soul.
