I’m not a pet person and over the years I’ve only really had one pet and that was a Goldfish that was given to me by my Aunt when I was a kid. I remember travelling with it in a plastic bag in the back of the family red mini from Bristol to Chippenham.
But I have a wonderful family and a family has it’s own needs. So it was that we came to have Simba our much loved cat that stayed with us from 1996, just after he was born, for 9 years. He moved from the apartment to our new home when we moved to the suburbs in our own house, in 2000.
I tolerated him for many years until he gradually became a lot more than my wife and children’s cat to become the authentic family cat.
So I was sad that one day in 2005 he went out in the morning as he usually did, but never returned.
I hope he found somewhere where he was happy and looked after and if he met with an accident that he felt no pain.
He found a place in my heart and I miss him.
