Hey everyone, i'm so sorry for not blogging in nearly a week! I've had a pretty depressing week, if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you will know that one of my beloved cats died :( I'm heartbroken, she was honestly the cutest little thing ever and we are all extremely upset at home. It really is like losing a family member. Nobody will ever understand the love my dad had for her especially, she was literally his little baby. I've never seen my dad cry in my whole entire life, so it was really horrible to see him cry. She used to lay with him every day, follow him around everywhere and constantly be on his lap or next to him at the dinner table, it was the sweetest thing. She was very old, about 17 we think, and went missing for a couple of days. Apparently cats do this when they are close to death, they go off on their own to pass away, which of course is very worrying for us as we had no idea where she was - if she was dead, or if she was suffering in pain somewhere. Luckily a neighbour found her in their garden and handed her in to the vets, but sadly it was too late and she died, of a fit we think, as she had a few before. :( It all went so quickly, she went missing and within 2 days she was gone forever. I am so gutted, i've had her most of my life so she will be greatly missed. I went to identify her body with my mum yesterday, and it may have been the saddest thing i've ever seen. I'm glad I went though, I got to say goodbye and stroked her little peaceful, lifeless body. Ok now i'm going to cry again. Love you and miss you little Alice.

One thing it did make me realise is just how many photos I have taken of her - I put together a folder of photos and it was at least 200! I plugged in my old portable hard-drive, which holds every single photo I have EVER taken since I first got a camera phone. LITERALLY! Every single photo. It's amazing. So a little tip for you all - take more photos! It's also so interesting to see how your house changes, family members, friends, etc. I have alllllways been a keen photo taker, and my little hard-drive literally holds my life. People always used to think I was weird, snapping away on my camera all the time. But i'm the one who has all the memories now! Most of the photos I don't even have any memory of, so it's so nice to look through and remember things, like little Alice. So, go go go and take lots of photos!

Ok now i'm going to drench you in her cuteness. Sorry if you aren't a cat fan, but you can't deny that she was the prettiest cat there ever was. She should have been a model.

P.s. my boyfriend thinks the way to a girls heart is through new shoes. He is right, and he did succeed in cheering me up a little bit, and I would usually be absolutely over the moon - but then I remembered her little furry face. But I do appreciate him a lot. So thank you for the shoes Luke. :)

 
HOW FUNNY!!!

Miss you baby!

Sorry to hear about your cat Lucy. One of mine went near enough the same way a few months ago at 18 years old and I don't think anyone knows how painful it actually is unless they've been through the same thing. Keep smiling :)
P.S those pants are gorgeous xx

Ah Lucy I feel so bad for you :( I'm such a mad cat lady and I know I'd be the exact same if something happened to one of my babbas, at least she had had a long life & you've got lots of lovely pics of her. She was a cutie pie!! Oh & you look lush, need those trousers! X

Jeeda said...

Sorry to hear about your cat, I'm not surprised you're so sad considering you grew up with her. It's hard losing someone that was a part of you. She looks beautiful.

My eyes literally just filled up! Being such a hardcore cat lover myself I can totally sympathise with you. Our oldest cat died last year, he kept having fits too :( It's so heartbreaking. Keep strong x Don't you think it's funny how family cats like to sleep in the exact same position?! Mine are always doing that lol.

Amazing jacket! I saw it in the ASOS sale but missed the chance :(

She is literally the cutest little thing ever! I can only imagine how it felt to loose her. I have two cats myself, one of which is very old & very close to my mum (follows her around/sleeps with her and everything). This post seriously made me cry thinking about my own cat! Hope you're okay! xx

It's crazy how much a cat can touch your heat. You still manage to look stunning even when you're upset. I hope you feel better soon xx

rae said...

first off i am so sorry to hear about your cat. cats are like family members i cannot even imagine what i would do if i lost either of my babies. it is nice you have your boyfriend there to help you get through it. i think it's really cute he got you shoes. if anything it really shows he is there to support you even in sort of funny ways. 2nd of all your outfit looks amazing i love the patterns you mixed together.

Hi hun, Im really really sorry to hear this sad news, this has brought tears to my eyes.Im am a very big animal lover and cats are just my fave thing ever! Your cat was so beautiful. I can't imagine how great your pain is but i can say i have experienced a similiar thing with my cat, we had to have our Victor our baby put to sleep about 2 years ago and we still miss him just has much and still have a little cry when we think of him and start to miss him.We have 2 pictures of him in the living room still, its like losing a family member, we will always miss him :"( Like you said your dad was upset when your cat died, my dad too got attached to ours too he still misses him now.It must of been so awful having to go and identify her body i couldnt imagine how awful that was.Pets really do become a part of the family and its heartbreaking when we lose them.I just hope you start to feel better soon with time the sadness does ease.Its nice of your boyfriend to buy you the shoes to cheer you up :) You look lovely in the photos. xx

Jenna said...
