I never knew him as I wasn't born when he was alive. Mum was deeply depressed after he died and was still grieving when she adopted me months later in July 2011. I was about 10 and a half weeks old by then. She rescued me and I rescued her right back. You can read about it in Mum's memoir, The Cat Years: How My Cat Soulmates Saved Me.
Here is a chubby baby Mum with her parents taken a very long time ago in the late 1960s.
When Mum is sad we cuddle and kiss 💓
