My magical Daisy Cat


City of London, United Kingdom

Posted Apr 23, 2014

I have had the pleasure of owning several cats over the past 20 years. I am quite the crazy cat lady! I take in one or two rescue cats until they find furrever homes. But my cat, my wonderful beautiful cat was Daisy. I called her Daisy Cat. A ragdoll cross, I took her in when she was 2 years old because the foster lady who had her had other cats but Daisy did not know nor understand she was a cat and was having none of it! So she came to me. From the second she arrived this gorgeous fluffy creature because one of the great loves of my life. We adored each other from the get go and she most certainly was a great companion and friend. I took her everywhere with me. Thank god for the introduction of pet passports just as my acting career took off! When my children were born I was warned about her sleeping in the babies beds and giving them allergies, but I asked the doctor and he told me not to worry as there were no allergies in my family so this was unlikely. Yes, she slept in with the babies, but not on them, just at the foot of the cot. She was so gentle that my children only realised she had claws when they went to other people houses and they played with their animals. As she got older Daisy slowed a little but was never sick, I do not ever remember taking her to the vets for anything. We spent her last years here in the warm sunshine of the Costa del Sol. One day after New Years I couldn't find her. A search of our garden located her forever asleep under a thick bush. I am and will always be heartbroken. I miss my Daisy Cat everytime I walk in the door, when I look at the sun shining on to the terrace, I miss her when I wake up and when I go to sleep. If you are thinking of getting a cat - I thoroughly encourage you too, but only if you will keep her forever.
