Have you ever loved and lost a Cat ?
Here is the true and unsentimental story of Sandy as told by Jane Kelly
I fell in love with this work as I’m sure many cat lovers will
I found the cat’s sudden death on the road hard to cope with,
especially as I had found the cat in the Congo, brought him back to the UK
and he’d been in quarantine for six months.
He had a few months with me then he was killed here, on the road.
He had lost one eye in Africa and couldn’t see very well.
I found the Greek myth about the dead crossing over the river Styx,
rowed over by Charon, very comforting.
There is no particular misery attached to it, the dead have their own kingdom. I liked that idea at the time.
