Rest In Peace My Handsome x

In memory of Midnight

June 2005 - 26 July 2010

Midnight was diagnosed with progressive heart disease when he was just 2 years old.

On 26th July he went into heart failure and we had to make the terrible decision to let him go..

We had him since he was 10 weeks old and he was one of the most friendly cats I had ever have the pleasure to know, everyone loved him and he loved everyone.
Our neighbours used to tell us how he would go to visit them for a chat
no-one was immune to his charms!
He took his tablets every evening with no fuss..

We had our first cat Minstrel for about 2 weeks before we got Midnight, when we bought him home on that first day she hated him and I felt terrible at the prospect of them not getting on, but the following day she jumped on the bed next to give gave him a big lick and from then on they were inseperable.

After then we introduced two rescue cats, Millie in 2007 and Bumble in 2008, he befriended them like they were his family. Midnight was always so laid back and gentle.

I found him once laying with our pet rabbit, Hopscotch, in our living room.

He was never far away, loving human company.

Knowing he had a dodgy ticker Minstrel used to bring in mice for him to play with!

He was full of love and mischief, often stealing the leftovers of the sunday roast
whilst we sat eating in the other room..

Once when they were babies, I found him and Minstrel with their heads in the christmas trifle I had just made! They looked so funny I didn't have the heart to be angry..

His poorly heart meant he slept alot ..

He had a happy albeit short life and it was not possible for us to love him anymore than we did.

His pals Minstrel, Millie and Bumble are all missing him.

He gave the most amazing puss-cat kisses.. xxxx

They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane.
I'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us back one by one, the chain will link again.


We miss you So much xxxxxxxxxx
