Last Thursday, 15th March, our dear little cat Mindy died suddenly. It happened super quickly and she probably didn't know what was happening and had no time to be frightened. When I found her, on the bedroom floor, she looked peaceful and her pose was relaxed.
We miss her terribly. She was sweet, affectionate and good-natured. Perhaps the gentlest and cuddliest cat we've ever had. We adore her surviving brothers, Mork, Felix and Prince, but they are very different personalities, so without Mindy there's a gap.
A week on, the pain of her loss is beginning to ease a little. It's still keen, but we're beginning to function again, and hopefully, before long, we'll be in a position to remember the good times with little Min, rather than dwell on the fact she isn't here any more.
In the end, the joy of living with her for five years far out balances the sorrow we're feeling now. Like our other beloved feline friends we've shared our lives with, she enriched us.
