George

I wouldn't usually do this here but today it feels appropriate.

Last night my sister came home from a night out to find that one of her cats had been hit by a car.  Fortunately Gill had not been drinking, because she'd been poorly and she rushed him to the vet where they put him on a drip and gave him oxygen.  She then came home and waited for a call this morning to see how he was.  Bless you @NessaLouise for being up and about in the States and being such a lovely support for Gill in the early hours on Twitter.  Say what you like about the much maligned social network but at times of trouble it's often a wonderful place of support.

Sadly, despite the vets best efforts and being a little over a year old, George passed away this morning.  After spending most of last weekend confronting that I might lose my cat and getting so much amazing support from Gill, I can't quite get my head around that she is now dealing with actually losing one of hers.  

Much love to everyone at Elsom Acres, my heart is going out to you all today x
