RIP Pickle

It has been a very long time since we posted anything on LJ, but I thought some of you who knew her might like to know that dear old Pickle, our tortoiseshell cat of 17 years, passed away today, after a relatively quick downturn, probably of kidney failure.

She was named Pickle for her propensity to get herself into them, and definitely used up all her lives, from falling in to the rain water trough and being locked in various lethal places, quite apart from having to put up with more than one psychotic dog on the premises.

She was an absolute cowbag if she got wind of a vet visit, to the extent that Liz STILL has a scar from a swipe Pickle took at her when we wanted to get her teeth looked at a few years ago. Ergo it was no great surprise when Liz told me that her final activity before she passed was to take a 'fuck off' swipe at her.

Having said that, she mellowed greatly in the last year after her sister passed away, and has spent the last few months sleeping on our heads at night, which is probably something I won't miss so much.....

I will miss her though. She has been around for rather more than a quarter of my life, and did a good job of CAT.

WE are actually struggling for pictures of her, but I do know a couple of people who are rather better at such things - so hopefully they will appear soon enough....

It's sad news: she was a sweet little girl.
