Mitzy

We've owned many cats, but Mitzy was probably the best of them all. Probably half Maine Coon, she was a rescue. She had many of the Maine Coon characteristics, for example, the love of water, but the main one was that you might, for instance, set up dressmaking, and as you get into it, all the bobbins and threads moving around, you'd become aware of purring, and she'd just be sitting there watching. Never getting in the way, just being with us.

She used to wake us with the most gentle pat to our eyelids.

We had her on Metacam for a few years for arthritis, but eventually and quite quickly she got a tumour on her jaw that, when it started to trigger a nerve that flattened her to the floor every time, we knew the time had come.
