Last week was a sad one for our family. We had to say goodbye to Jenna, our cat. She was an old girl and had a good life. As Jenna was from a rescue centre, we’re not sure how old she was – we think about two years old when we got her, and she lived to be about 19.
For my daughter Eloise, Jenna had been around all of her life. Eloise wrote a piece which I found very moving. I’ve shared it already on social media, but wanted to publish it here for posterity, and as a lasting tribute:

I’m going to miss you so much, Jenna. There hasn’t been a moment in my life where I haven’t been with you, and even when I was upset you’d come over to me and give me a cuddle.
It’s cruel I have to spend the rest of my life without you, when I have troubles and problems there won’t be a little skinny little cat for me to hold onto and ramble about my shit to.
You’ve been struggling for a while, and it’s only fair to let you go so you can be free and happy. So for now, au revoir, mon amour.
I’m feeling your family’s pain today…
Blessings to you.
Thank you for your kind thoughts, and sharing your own blog. I’ve read the piece about your cat, very moving and very relatable. Best wishes.
Thank you. 💞 Blessings to you all.
