    Hi Everyone, old members who remember me & newbies who don't lol :)

    I have some sad news, my baby boy Elvis passed on 21st Aug 2013.
    I had to have him pts, as much as I just wanted him to fall asleep naturally, I knew it was time :(

    Am finding it hard, he was nearly 17 years old, that is a long life I know, but still doesn't take away the fact I think I see him every morning and still look out for him all day in the garden, still talk about him, just keep forgetting that he is gone :(

    So please raise a paw to my little boy, and give your furrbabies a big hug from me





    Baby boy just 5 weeks old, half siamese he was very bold.
    Sleeping in a slipper playing with a pen, biting my arms laying on my head.
    Drinking from my glass and playing with a sock,
    Hunting voles and ducks, prowling the block,

    Elvis was his name, the king of kings,
    looked like a mini tiger, now he has his wings,
    Every year defied the vets, who always told me ‘he wont last’
    he was nearly 17years old until he past.

    My baby boy till the end, I held his little paw,
    I felt my heart break into a million pieces or more.

    Night baby boy, King of the cats x

    Elvis 5th April 1997 - 21st aug 2013

    It a mixture of emotions as well, as I'm pleased to see you back, and sad at the circumstances.

    Sorry to hear your news, he sounded like one special boy indeed that will leave a very big hole..... I'll certainly raise a paw in honour to Elvis, a much loved and much missed king of kings x

    Ow, TB, I am so sorry about your gorgeous boy. :crying::crying::crying:

    17 is a great age,but it hurts so much to lose an old friend like him...
    I am sure the King himself came over to the Bridge to greet his namesake, and well-deserved it would be, too.
    Farewell, great Elvis, and do let your mummy know you are OK, will you....

    TB much as I am happy to see you back I am so very sorry it has to be to post this sad news.
    I know how hard you tried to keep Elvis going but sadly sometimes love just isn't enough.
    Run free you gorgeous boy you have left a big hole in the hearts of those who loved you .
    RIP Elvis xx
