Wordless Wednesday: RIP to one beautiful cat.

Last night we discovered our cat, Scurvy, had passed away. My heart is broken as we have to say goodbye to such an incredible member of our family. A funny and affectionate kitty who I would often find hiding in hilarious places, like under my bathroom sink or randomly behind the breadmaker in the kitchen cupboard.

She was our dog’s best friend and so patient with our children. She had taken years of jealousy from Lilly in stride. In fact, it was the subject of one of my first ever blog posts, titled “No, no, we don’t kick the kitty in the head.” Their relationship had blossomed into one that was playful and loving.

Today I want to remember Scurvy. Our beautiful, quirky and cuddly cat who will be so very missed.

    I am so sad to hear about the passing of your dear kitty, Scurvy. What beautiful pictures you shared. I’m sure she was a very special member of your family. I lost my dear cat Pumpkin back in 2005. But, in 2007 Lilly came into our lives. I wish you peace and may her memories be forever.

    I am so sorry about your cat. Pets are family at this house too. We have 7 dogs. No cats due to allergies but I love them!

    My heart goes out to you. Scurvy looks like my cat from the 90s! I lost him too, sadly. His name was Monkey. Cats are such loving and wonderful pets. I always have one. I will pray for special blessings of love for you and your family today.
