You were born all grown up. Your eyes were filled with an unbelievable innocence and trust, the like of which I’ve never seen before or since. Your gentle spirit and loving nature were second to none.
As a kitten you took it upon yourself to love and care for all the other little abandoned and abused waifs that were lucky enough to cross your path. You were always there for them. If they were tiny and scared, you’d lie there and let them suckle until they felt safe and loved once again, even though at times you were only slightly older yourself. You’d clean them and make sure each knew where to find the food and water bowls. If necessary you’d take the food to them. If they were very weak or small you’d chew the food first so they could eat it easily. You supervised while they played and slept with them snuggled safely into your warmth. You ignored your own need for a kitten hood to make sure they had the opportunity to revel in theirs.
When you went off to your new home with a wonderful family who adored you, you created your own feline family there as well. Your new Mum realised that you still yearned to care for a kitten less fortunate than yourself, and so she adopted a little stray kitten who came to worship the ground you walked on.
You filled the lives of everyone you met with unimaginable love and laughter. Your love and gentleness are legend.
Your passing leaves behind a trail of broken hearts and endless tears, human, feline and canine. You will live in our hearts forever.
RIP our beautiful boy (Maurie) aka (Ashley)
