Early Sunday morning one of our 2 fur babies, Ruudy, died suddenly after a dash to the emergency animal hospital.  We don't know what took Ruudy away (he was 9), the vet could only speculate that it may have been a stroke or a heart attack . Whatever it was, it was sudden and unexpected.  I wasn't sure I if I was going to post this because its just heartbreaking (I didn't post about our other cat who died at 20 because I was just so sad) but after going through our photos of him, I wanted to share what a  gorgeous, cute little fella he was.  R.I P. Ruudy 


  1. I feel so sorry for you right now.
    Our cat is like a member of the family......almost like a third child......but better behaved!
    What a terrible shock for you......
    Thinking of you,
    Tania xx

  2. Oh Nat, I am sending you the best of my thoughts.
    I am an animal lover of all kinds (my blog is testament to that) and it is so sad when one of your loved family members passes.
    Lots of hugs. Hope you are feeling a little happier soon.

  4. Natalie, so sorry to hear about your boy...
    I lost my old girl last year and I know how sad it feels.
    At least you had each other for nine years though...

    It's always sad losing a furry member of the family.
    Take care

    Its so tough when you lose a pet, they become such little (but very important!) members of your family. Ruudy was very cute.

  11. Oh hun, I am so sorry to hear that.

    Poor Ruudy. He was just beautiful! I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel. It's so hard when such a big part of your life and family leaves. Just find comfort in the fact that he had a happy fulfilled life with you, and how much he would have known you loved him! xx

    I lost our pet dog Blacky last month so I know how you are feeling, he was the only support for my widowed mother.
