Rest in Peace, Rossy

by Suw on January 14, 2004

Our cat Rossy, aka Rosencrantz, just died, aged 12. She was fine this morning, her usual chirpy self, then not long ago she laid down, miaowed a little, and died.

Cats have always been a big part of our family. Rossy was one of two sisters we got as kittens. She and Guildenstern both had litters of kittens themselves, one of which, Sandii, we kept. Gilly disappear several years ago, and Sandii was in a fatal car accident in 2000.

Rossy was an affectionate, happy cat, who would steal your dinner from your plate (and Fflwff's!) with unparalleled insouciance. Even though she was getting on a bit, she'd still play, but mainly she'd just cuddle up on your lap and purr a lot. We will all miss her terribly.
