A very sad day for us yesterday we had to have Sweep put to sleep, a month ago she was diagnosed with cancer in her lower jaw, we knew we wouldn't have her with us for much longer, so made the most of her last few weeks with us, (hence my lack of visits to blogs lately) she was spoilt rotten for those weeks, to anyone that knows us, they'll find that hard to believe!! as she was already fairly spoilt anyway, so lots of extra cuddles and had all sorts of treats, she was 'our baby', more like a human than a cat, accompanying us on our various travels around Europe with the caravan, Cats are not so usual to see on caravan sites, so she would frequently attract small children wanting to see or stroke her on her walks around a campsite on her lead, thank goodness she was a good traveller, she had her own seat and safety harness in the car so she could see out and would complain loudly if she couldn't see enough, she selected her special corner in the caravan. She was 18 years old and has given us many a laugh with her daft antics. As you can know if you've ever had a pet in your life for a few years there have been lots of tears shed lately, we will miss her terribly.
This card is one I made a while ago for my very good friend Clare and also Sweeps' original
owner slave. Sweep spent a fair bit of time with us before we adopted her, as Clares' life suddenly changed and was often away travelling on business for weeks at a time, so in the end it made more sense if Sweep stayed with us permanently.
