Fat Mouse

She was our matriarch, even after being neutered she never stepped down in hierarchy. She ruled the roost until the very end and left a gap – in literal and figurative sense – when she died on January 2nd 2004.

I sat with her on my lap for an hour after she died. Her eyes were still open and a strange thing occurred: her faded eye colour turned back to dark orange again.

She was quite a character, independent, strong-willed and affectionate only when it suited her – in other words: a CAT!
