Today we want to remember those furries that we have said goodbye to in the many years since Mum and Dad have been on this earth..they are super old..so they have sadly said goodbye to many special friends..
Mums first pet was a Galah called Cliffy..this is Mum and Cliffy..she also had a Cockatoo which she has gone totally blank on and cannot remember his name.
Dad's first doggie was an Airedale Terrier called Tess..she looks super sweet!
Mum's first doggie was a Cockerspaniel called Tammy...even though he was a boy MOL..Mum could not find his picture and got super nuts looking for it...he was her best friend in the whole world
This is Charlie..he was Mum and Dad's first Kitty together..he had a cool collection of xmas baubles and milk rings behind the couch..Mum and Dad lost him when he got out and was hit by a car..
When Mum was pregnant with her first baby her and Dad had Choko..he was a super guy! a typical panther and a real good detector of earthquakes!
They also had Shaggy as well..she was very sweet but a terrible escape artist...
Mum and Dad had to rehome them with Dads brother when they moved as they were not allowed any pets..we still do not know where they went as they escaped and were not found again..Mum and Dad were heart broken.
Fast forward many years and Mum and Dad finally decided they could have more pets and keep them.
On the left is Roxy..she was a beautiful ginger girl who they found pregnant..she gave birth to one kitten..on the right is Squash her kitten ..another ginger girl..here they are with one of Mums twins Chris..he is now 28..boy..
Roxy also escaped and was killed by a car..Mum was shattered..and so was Dad..
Squash lived to be 16 years old..
Simba was a beautiful boy ..he was a real character but he was shot and killed and Mum and Dad were so upset they sold the house and moved to where we are now!
Sweet girl Squash before she left for the bridge..she was a bit cranky and not too smoochy unless it was on her terms.
This is Basil..he broke Mums heart when dogs killed him and his Mum Rosemary had to be put to sleep because of the doggies too..
Basil and his Mum Rosemary..
This is Merlin McTavish..Mum's heart kitty..he died from FIV at the age of 8...Mum lost her best friend when he left.
This is Eich ..he was a lovely smoochy Rottweiler..he was very funny..he cocked his leg on a police radar one day..Mum was very embarrassed..here he is with our human brothers and sister many years ago...Mum and Dad lost him to Liver failure at the age of 8..it was a year or so later that Doc entered the family..
We miss them all and include as well a budgie called Pete..some tropical fishes...hermit crabs..and a bunny Mum once had a little girl.
