A year ago today, Sugar was hit by a car and killed. She was eighteen months old. Tonight I drank some seven year old wine in her honour. Well, and also because I like wine. But I do really miss my baby girl. No two cats are the same: I have Spike, who is so incredibly beautiful to look at and a total darling who adores his mummy; Jack who's a handsome little devil, not afraid of anything, ever; and Daisy who's as sweet as she is pretty but terrified of her own shadow. None of them are like Sugar, who was sweet and frivolous and silly and adorable in a way you only can be if you have a name like Sugar.

Miss you, baby girl.


  1. And, *raises a toast*

    I was out of town for Sugar's passing as well as my own "Sagesse's"

    So...yes, each one is different, each one holds a place in our hearts. And each one brings smiles to our faces.


  2. (((hugs))), K8. We have a fridge magnet that says, "Cats leave pawprints on your heart". It's true, they do.

  3. Thanks guys.

    I have a little plaque that says the same thing, Jan. They leave pawprints everywhere--why not there?
