His tail wags no more

Mr Pushhkin

The delightful Mr Pushhkin passed away in the early hours of this morning after a long and fulfilled life. An itinerant gentleman when he strolled into our lives - matted and bedraggled - he quickly settled into home life hogging the the comfiest chair nearest the warmth of the Rayburn. Mr Pushhkin was a 'beautiful boy' who relished a good brush-up that transformed his previously matted hair into a shiny, soft and lovely coat. 

Although unwell, Mr Pushhkin always kept his sense of decorum and obvious regalness. Eventually he succumbed to his very advanced years and ailments while dispensing love and affection to the last. His actual age is somewhat of a mystery although we suspect he was born some when around the 1470s.

He will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Sad to hear of his passing. A bit of a character, I guess. Cats being cats, another will probably fall into your life again soon.

Oh so sad-I've become such a Mr. Pushkin fan. Really love your stunning portraits of him. I'm glad he found such a loving and comfortable home to spend his final days. sniff.
