After much thought, delaying and procrastinating, we had Bailey put to sleep today. Her desperately erratic and unsociable toilet behaviour and her food allergies were making it impossible to keep her going, despite her affectionate and loving nature.
I once wrote about her here;
She is buried by our front door, under the cat statue... so we will think of her often.
I mentioned to someone recently who had lost their own cat "they leave footprints on your heart".
I will miss her little cuddles and head butts, and her chats.
