Summer was a beautiful tabby cat who passed away recently, she had lived to the great age of 27 years. Summer had a wonderful life cared for by Denise and her husband – this, without a doubt, contributed to her longevity. She was a much loved cat of spirit and character and here’s what Denise told us about her:
Summer was born feral and was a great hunter. We knew before we saw her that she was bringing us a present because of her loud, look what I’ve got purr.
She wasn’t fussy about what she caught, we had a few squirrels and even a bat, caught after she’d gone deaf.
She even went on holiday with us, wearing a harness and lead in the car. There were a few double takes when we stopped to fill up and she was perched looking out of the windscreen.
Her last day was spent as usual, having a wander around outside and having cuddles.
She came in at teatime, had a fit and peacefully slipped away in my husbands arms.
