    Freddy the Cat

    Our faithful friend Freddy the Cat died an hour go, peacefully in his sleep. He had been part of our family since he was 6 months old. He was 17 years and one month old.

    He was an amazing cat. Ive had a few cats in my life, but Freddy was inteilligent, funny, patient and tolerant of kids, and clever, and a wonderful personality. He had my wife wrapped round his little paw. He liked to play fight, rolling round and attack your hand, even up to a few weeks ago. Even as an old cat he was playful. If he didnt like something, he'd let you know with a little bite to your hand or ankle. He understood things you said- you could say to him "Go to bed, Freddy", and he'd get up, amble his way in the bedroon and jump on the bed and curl up. Every morning he'd would come and curl up on your chest and give you five minutes chest cuddle, then over to my wife, five minutes fior her, then he'd slink off and curl up in one of his favorite spots somewhere, the living room settee, in the greenhouse, under the trees at the bottom of the garden. He gave us so much pleasure and love.

    He loved fish. He'd quite happily sit next t oyou if you had a meal with prawns or fish in eat and eat all the seafood for you. In fact, he'd eat almost anything, including cheese, crisps, curry, pasta and marmite on toast. Freddy loved his food.

    He even had his own Wicker chair in the garden. We were going to throw it out, put it out in the garden to take away, he claimed it. He slept on that chair for four summers in the day, until we moved here.


    He invited himself to live with us. He was next doors cat, but they wouldnt let him in the house. By the time he was 6 months old, he decided he didnt like living there, so he simply started coming in our house through the two cat flaps we had. The boss cat, Simba,. liked him straight away, and they'd roll round play figting and chasing each other. He would sit in the window at watch the neighbour walk past, but we told her we didnt encourage him ,and we cant stop him coming in. He broke his leg and tooth one day, and had to be kept indoors - he was still officially the neighbours cat then. When they finally let him out there house, he rushed straight round to us, and found a favorite spot to sleep on. When the neighbours moved they just left him and the other cat they had, abandoned. So we became his family. When Simba died, he became boss cat, until there was only him left.

    There will never be another cat like Freddy. He rocked our world.


    RIP Freddy the Cat. 2002-2019

    Thoughts and prayer your way. It's tough to lose a fur baby child.

    We lost our cat in January. He now rests in the back yard under a tree.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    So sorry for the loss of your Freddy. When you have them so long, you can communicate very well. I miss having long talks with my cat. RIP, Freddy.

    So sorry for your loss. So painful when a source of such joy must complete the inevitable circle.

    So very sorry that Freddy left you. His time was done. He had to go.

    I know cats. Every once in a while you will hear a soft thump from the next room. The sound of a furry body jumping off a chair or bed. You might even see the tip of a tail whisking around a corner. That's cats letting us know that they still yave an eye out for us.
