Remembering Oakley

I was going to wite this post yesterday. It didn’t want to be written, but better late than never:

Two years ago yesterday my beautiful gentle  Oakley made an assisted trip over the rainbow bridge. He was fifteen years old and had lived a good life.

I still miss him

a lot

    Beautiful cat. He was the image of our Oscar as he was a few years back. He’s now almost 18 and has lost his former beauty, sadly. These days he looks a bit scraggy but we’re glad to still have him.

      Yes these photos are from when he was in his prime, he did fade away as he got older, but he was always our beautiful boy.

    I understand why you still miss him. I miss everyone of my pets who leaves me. Oakley was a very handsome fellow and I know he had a wonderful life with you.

    I have been pet free for just over a year now. My last cat died a year ago in early November. We decided not to get another one (for now) but after 30 years, I still look out for the spot where the food and water were on the kitchen floor and am surprised when it’s empty.

    Oakley was a handsome cat. he certainly looks like he enjoyed his life!

    I can see why you miss him. I mean anyone who sleeps in a sink is a character worth remembering. 🙂

    What a sweet fella – marmalade tom cats seem to have a very gentle, loving personality. We took in a stray a few years ago who could have been Oakley’s twin. Our good friends gave Mackintosh a loving home for many years and still miss him.
