I hopped up on your bed last night, I came to have a peep,  I could see that you were crying, that you found it hard to sleep. I purred and touched you softly as you brushed away a tear, “It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”  
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, you were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me. I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care, I want to re-assure you that I’m not lying there.  
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key, I gently put my paw on you, I blinked and said “It’s me.” You looked so very tired as you sank into your chair, I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.   
It’s possible for me to be so near you everyday, to say to you with certainty, “I never went away.” You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew… in the stillness of that evening I was very close to you. 
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I’ll run across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there’s so much for you to see, please be happy, live your journey out… then come home to be with me.


When I first saw you I knew you were extra special and that was how it was. You became such a handsome boy but so loving and gentle, the most beautiful friend I could ever have had. Taken away from me on 25th April by a reckless driver. I've been told that time will be a healer, but my heart hurts more every day. I miss you so much, all I hope is that one day we will be together again.


My beautiful adorable boy after years of upper respiratory illness, to lose him to cancer was a too much to bear. He was loved by all who met him and will never be forgotten.

Thirteen years went by so fast and my heart will never be completely whole again. I could not have loved you more and I miss you more than words can say. xxx



Kez our beautiful much loved fur baby was taken from us suddenly after becoming poorly, he died at home leaving us broken hearted.

I first met Kez within an hour of his birth and knew he was the fur baby for our family, he filled our lives for 14 years with fun and lots of cuddles.


It is with great sadness that I am informing you of the death of my beautiful black cat Norton.

He was hand reared by Cats Protection from 3 weeks old and has been a wonderful companion.

Due to a tumour we sadly put him to sleep last Monday. Resting now in peace and reunited with his partner Valerie.


Sleep well my boy so sorry we didn’t have longer together.

See you again one day.

Alice and Connie miss you too – much love always 4/8/13~1/8/18.


My lovely boy Oscar came to live with me aged 11 years from Rolvenden.

We had almost 5 wonderful years together before age and previous neglect related illness took him from this world. He was a calm, affectionate and gentle boy with a beautiful soul and I miss him so much.

I wish we had been allowed more time but he will always be in a special place in my heart forever. Bless you little blue boy…


Ricky is sadly missed, especially by his Mummy and Daddy,  but also by the many visitors to Rolvenden Cat Rescue.

He was “Uncle” Ricky to the many orphaned kittens he had fostered and nurtured, here at the rescue.

Dear Ricky was one of the first stray cats accepted into our centre all those years ago….. 


Miss Marple

Our dear little Miss Marple (who I hope you remember, can’t forget that name!) who was with you back in 2011, sadly passed away very suddenly on the Saturday 24th May.

She is greatly missed and was deeply loved and treasured the way a cat should be. I just wanted to also thank you for bringing her into our lives as she truly was very special to us.


Our Dear Berie, who liked to sleep in strange places

Berie came to us a number of years ago from Rolvenden Cat Rescue as a feral. 

She lived in our barn, but eventually trusted us enough to be stroked and would even come into our kitchen to sit with us. 

She was always so affectionate.  She passed away this summer and we still miss her terribly.  She was a brilliant mouser.

Oscar-Bear xxx

Oscar you were taken from us far too soon.

Baby Lee

Lee (Baby) was a tiny, sweet girl, head of the house, even though she was    small she certainly had a loud voice and made her presence known.

Sox & Princess

Sox and Princess were very shy but loved being outside, Princess always crossed her paw when she laid down and Sox always squeaked when supper was ready.


My dear, delicate little flower.

I think of you so often even though you were gone so quickly from our lives.

A tragic accident that took your soft beauty out of this world.

Love always,

Mummy xxx


Why do people have to drive so fast? This is Jake our adopted cat from Rolvenden.  He came to live with us along with his sister Ella.

The pleasure they brought to our lives was priceless. I just hope the driver of the car that ended Jakes young life feels as bad as we do.  Sleep peaceful Little one and rest easy knowing we continue to love and look after Ella and miss you every day.  God bless you xx


Tio was a timid little lad, and not blessed with the best of health. This didn’t stop him enjoying the time he had with his companion cats and with a select few humans.

He sadly died aged 9, after a lifetime of kidney disease and I miss him very much. His closest companion cat Peri misses him too, as no matter how many other cats come into his life, only Tio filled that special place. Bless you my little lovely. xxx


Mica was 16 when she died and had been with me for most of that time. She was funny and cheeky, moody and grumpy sometimes, much like any elderly lady.

Thinking of her brings a smile to my face, tinged with sadness that we can’t sit together or cuddle each other any more.  I miss my little girl and hope she is young again – chasing butterflies in the long grass…….


This is Julius, a sweet little boy who I discovered, undersized, ill and thin, sheltering in my log shed.

Although I took him in and he was given immediate vets’ care, it was not possible to bring him back to health – living rough had taken its toll.

Be well now little Julius, and I shall think of you without fear or hunger, playing in sunshine and wild flowers.
