WOYWW 113

I'm finally getting near to finishing my Christmas House Mini ... I'm printing out photographs and making tags, using up every piece of pink, blue and brown paper I have, and generally making a bit of a mess :)
As you can see from my desk (for "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?") I seem to have a little 'helper' too! CallieCat just loves to try and sit on the paper as it's coming out of the printer - daft moggy!

On a much sadder note, my mum and dads cat, Mitzy, passed on to kitty-heaven yesterday. She was 19 years old, and a tiny little cutie-pie of a cat - still looking like a kitten at 19! Her tummy-mummy was a farm cat and a rat catcher and her feline-daddy was a feral tomcat... and Mitzy was a tiny cat who stayed a little fluffball all her lovely long life, and had all the best qualities of her cat-mummy and daddy.
She was spoilt rotten and treated like a duchess... and my parents will miss her so very very much.


She had a very long (and pampered) life, and no cat could have owned better people (we all know that nobody owns a cat... it's definitely the other way around *lol*).
Irreplaceable... the gorgeous Mitzy.

Sorry to hear of your parents' loss - pets become such a part of the family. Sounds like Mitzy had a wonderful life.

Had to laugh at the pic of your little 'helper'

It's heartbreaking when we lose a beloved pet, they really do become close family, my dad calls his dog, their son and heir lol. So I do understand how lost your parents will be. But Mitzy was loved and loved in return, that's one lucky cat xx

Sorry to hear about your parents cat. But 19 years is a respectful age and seems like she made the best of them. :) Enjoy your CalliCat's misschiefs. :)

Your poor parents are going to have a big hole in their life aren't they? I know how hard it is when a cherished cat dies. The pic of your moggy chasing the printer paper made me laugh - how helpful was that?? NOT!! xx

Sorry to hear about losing a sweet cat. It is always hard to lose them and they love us so much and are always there for us.

Your desk looks much cleaner then mine, I just keeping making piles on top of piles. Will have to get a shovel and clean it out soon,hahah

It's always diffucult to loose a pet and I hope your parents are managing OK. If you can believe it I have a dog like your cat. Whatever I am doing she is right in the middle of it which would explain the trim paint on her ear and tail! Happy WOYWW ;D
