Penny Black Challenge - Monochrome

It's been a trying week all things considered. Our old puss cat went missing last weekend, then returned for one last cuddle with my brother and he called my parents back from holiday to tell them that old pusskins was going downhill and he thought my Mum and Dad would want to see him before he had to be taken to the vet. They packed up from holiday as quickly as they could and returned home. Sadly for us, we think he ( Beau our cat) just briefly stopped by and couldn't wait for my Mum to return and we think he has now passed away somewhere. We have hunted everywhere, we've asked neighbours, looked under bushes and called and called him. His bed has gone unslept in, his walkway to the orchard is growing over now and his food and water went untouched. So with a heavy heart we think he passed away on Monday afternoon. My brother is a proper old softy at heart, he used to go and buy him chicken and cook it for him when Mum and Dad were on holiday and spoil him rotten, buying him new things and giving out lots of cuddles, so I think it's only right that he came back to see him before he passed. Seeing an empty space now where he used to sit brings a lump to my throat. I was going to use a Penny Black cat to do the monochrome challenge for Penny Black Saturday, but I found it too painful so have gone for the mouse instead. It's quite a simple card, unusual for me.

I'm so sorry to hear of the dilemma with Beau. I'm sure you are right but it would be nice if you could just know what has happened. It's like losing a member of your family after such a long time.

Take care, my friend
