Because most of us in 'blogland' write about things near and dear to our heart, I share a sad event today.
A fellow English countryman and blogger, John Bailey journal of a writing man : whom I have been a dedicated follower of over the past thirteen years; announced today the passing over The Rainbow Bridge of Dolly the mega cat, his no-less than regal Maine Coon cat.
Over the years, John has shared his wonderful and funny stories of Dolly, a cat only in name, a Queen by her own standards.
The household comprised of John, Graham, Harry cat and Dolly, with John the self described author, poet, webmaster, and minder of the cat, sharing everyday stories of their world in Somerset England.
I came to know Dolly through his writings, and loved her no less than if if she had been a member of my own household.
So my dear John and Graham, my heart is heavy, my thoughts are with you; there will always be a special place in my heart with a smile and a sctritchy-scratch for dear Dolly.
Rest in peace my furry friend.
You were indeed a Queen.
