Candi was our short-haired Tortie….

I had her has a kitten in Oct 1993….I actually wanted her sister who was a beautiful long-haired Tortie….but as is usually the way…the cat chose me!!!

So snuggled in my pocket we went home…..

Candi was probably one of the most unsociable cats I have  ever come across…..she would attack the poor postman (on a regular basis), one friend of mine was actually scared of coming through my front door, she thrived on how much blood she could obtain from a teasing hand! the other cat who lived with me at the time (my wonderful Plebe) had his work cut out with the ball of terror…

She would jump on the backs of pheasants and make them squeal, climb a tree and then get stuck, poor Plebe would often come home and do his “Lassie” thing of meowing constantly until I followed him to wherever candi was in trouble!!!

Then I had my first baby….Athena came home in the July 1999 and candi changed….gone was the ball of spitting, hissing nastiness….in it’s place was a faithful, lovely natured Tortie….who absolutely adored the baby!!!

and so that’s how we remember her…..good with all the kids…a gentle old lady who dealt with the scamps of Mr Ceylon and Mr Corky with a mean look….or a swift paw.

she loved a cuddle and hug….and dribbled her pleasure usually a few minutes before you were due out…and dressed up!


Candi sadly died on Easter Sunday 2009… only a few months before her 16th Birthday….we miss her doddery ole slow-paced presence, her mind was not the sharpest towards the end, this led to some funny and also sad moments….she had earned her place at the top of the cat placing…and she deserved it

I sure hope she has gained those feline wings and not causing any bother….
