Saying goodbye to a part of your family is hard. In January and February, we had to say goodbye to two fur babies, Maddy and Oscar 😭. Parting with them so close together was a huge shock, and it has taken me some time (five months) to go through photos and make this post. I love them both, and they will always be in my memory.
Maddy and Oscar, you brought so much love and happiness into our lives. We will always cherish the happy and funny memories we shared. I am thankful for the time that we could share, and I hope you knew how much you were both loved 🐾💖.
Maddy (Maddy-Ray-Lee-Cyrus, Madeline, Madgels, Bubble, The Bubble) was a bit of a snob. She didn’t like the other fur children and prefered to dine on a particular diet (thank you very much). Maddy liked to sleep on a human bed, and her favourite place in winter was by the fire. She was determined, strong-willed, and if she cared for you, you knew with her little headbutts on the leg during the day and in your face at night (to get under the blanket). She had a special bond with my mum and were often close together. She brought so much joy through her unique personality and will be sadly missed. Her passing was traumatic, and I choose to focus on the happier times and the wonderful 18 years we shared.
Oscar (Oscie, Doodle, Oscarene, Noodle) was a loving natured, kind kitty and a great friend. She was constantly by my side as I went through high school (often sitting on my work) and always ready to settle into my bed. She had an adorable habit of wandering up to me outside with her tail doing a wiggle. Oscar also had many strange habits. Her favourite toy for a long time was an old sponge she stole from the kitchen sink. She spent many nights throwing it around and having a great game to herself. I will always appreciate the moments we had.
