Toby 2000 to 2013

The gorgeous and happy Toby shared my home with me and his mum, Poppy, for the last two and a bit years, although we actually knew each other for the whole of his life. When Toby and Poppy came to live with me in November 2010, they felt like the best birthday present ever!

Toby was chatty, loving, intelligent and generally the most fabulous cat to have in my life, and made so many friends, both in real life and on line via his tweets, and photos.

His purr was set to 11.

When not chatting to me and his pals, Toby loved nothing better than to sit in the garden watching the birds, insects and the grass growing, or rootling around getting his nose grubby.

"The bed's too big without you."

Toby was and is still, a legend! He's gone but not forgotten, I'm so sorry he's left you, in body if not in spirit. XX

That was just the same kind of cat as mine... a jellicle cat. She was so good natured and easy going... never ran up any vet bills... and she even died without a single problem. World's best cat.

An artist friend of mine wrote a book about her jellicle cat who died. I found it exactly how I felt about my kitty when I found she had died.

Her book is
