Today I'm posting a tribute to our lovely Twiggy, our 5th and last furbaby who we had to put to sleep on Thursday 31st August, 2 weeks short of her 16th birthday.
She was the smallest of the litter, hence she was named after Twiggy, the British supermodel of the 60's.
They were friendly and whenever the patio door was open they would just wander indoors and sit on the sofas. Eventually they just moved in.
Just a couple of weeks before they gave birth I noticed both cats were pregnant as they were getting a bit fat around their tummy.
We adopted out all but 3 of the 8 babies through an organization called "Safe - Saving animals from euthanasia" - my son Michael wanted Fluffy, and the other two girls, the tortoishells Shelley and Twiggy sadly just didn't get adopted as they were the "ugliest" little kittens. The mothers - Mommy and Baby sadly passed away in March 2014 and February 2015, Fluffy in March 2021 and Shelley in April 2022.
