This was taken the first week that I brought Aine and Brigit home to mum.
Aine and Brigit, saved mums life in 2008. We had only had them a week before mum became seriously ill and went into hospital. The doctors didn’t think that mum would last another night so I placed these little treasures in a rucksack and tried to sneak them into see mum. We were foiled of course by their very loud meowing at the displeasure of being kept in the dark while going through interesting places. The staff were very understanding however, and did not object. When mum saw them hop onto her bed I could see the light of life come back into her face as she smiled and watched them play. And so she stayed with us a while longer. They too have been missing their dear companion.
