We adopted Tom and his sister when they were just little kittens. Tom has never been a cuddly cat. He didn’t like to be picked up. He didn’t like cuddles. But we grew to love him just the same. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our little Tommy as he was very sick. He’d been losing weight over the last few weeks and didn’t have much energy. The vet told us he would go downhill fast. Through many tears we decided to let him go.

I miss him so much. His little torch tail. Everyday when I’d come home from work he’d greet me at the top of the stairs. In winter, sometimes, he would sleep on the bed near my feet.

Love you Tommy.
