Teigar, aka Katt



R.I.P.   went today, purring as she went. Aged about 17 years (human).

Looked after The Oily One all his adult life.

Also looked after The Carpenter.

A ball of nerves and affection and playfulness, to quote my daughter.

She had a tumour on her liver, the Oily One found last week, and quickly went downhill, losing weight but still eating until today.

We'll all miss her.

She'll be laid to rest in Pembrokeshire where she stayed for a while, on a smallholding at the end of a mountain.

17 years is a good age, a lot of history too. I still miss my old dear who died at 20 a few years ago. My boys had never known life without her up until then.. Sending you a hug xx

I know how sad that is. We had to put our beloved Thelma down last week. We did everything we could for her, but she was suffering.

I am a 'tabby' fan. Ours is quite reserved, but slowly becoming friendlier (he's 10). Sorry to hear your sad news; it's always a shock.

It's the hardest thing about owning a pet but also the most honorable thing we can do for a living thing and let it die peacefully without pain.Hope you have many good memories...looks like he was loved well.

So sorry to read about your loss of Teigar. 17 is a good age, but I'm not sure that it makes it any easier losing them! So many memories are wrapped up in cats and their companionship. Kind thoughts to you from us down in NZ. Pxx

Oh, how we feel the loss. Teigar was a pretty cat and I'm so sorry to hear that she has moved on. I love that she will be in a place called Pembrokeshire. I have Pembroke Corgis and I had no idea that there was a place with this name. Charming!
Seventeen years was a long time to love a cat. She will be missed I'm sure.
