Sunday Selfie and Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Happy Sunday Selfie!


We're currently in the middle of another heatwave in London and all I can do is sleep so I'm afraid I fell asleep trying to take my selfie today.

We just found out that today is also Rainbow Bridge Rememberance Day, 

So we are remembering Suzy and Molly.

Suzy was Mum's cat when she was younger. More of a family cat who came into Mum's life when she was 19 and stayed until Mum was 32. Suzy was the most beautiful black and white (tuxedo) cat and very affectionate, just like me. Mum wrote about Suzy in her memoir The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me.

Molly is my Uncle John's cat who recently crossed the bridge. It was actually just 2 months ago. I never met her because she lived in Sweden but Mum met her many times and said she was a very sweet kitty who always looked forward to Mum's visits. Mum always looked forward to seeing her too because before she rescued me in 2011, she hadn't had a cat companion since Suzy passed.

Athena, it's been warm here too, so we understand why you napped during your selfie! Molly and Suzy were pretty kitties; my condolences on their passing, newly or years ago. It's hard no matter what.
