Mr Corky.

by on Sep.16, 2011, under In Memory of..., The Cats!

It has taken a while to actually write this…..Corky was such a huge character that every-time I tried I ended up a little tearful.

Corky arrived as a small kitten just before Christmas a few years ago….along with his brother Ceylon….and of course Mr Darcy.  Corky lead the gang of three straight away….taking on our Labradoodle, Tikka…..and when he was bored with her, he went on to terrorise the neighbours dogs, chickens, ducks….even children!!!!!

He was naughty, cocky, arrogant…..BUT he was the most loving, affectionate furry…..if he spotted you his tail would shoot straight up with the top just kinked over….ready for that head-butt and huge purr…..he would often be find head on pillow snuggled up with my daughter Alethea…fast alseep…..or just sprawled out next to her while she watched TV or played.

Those of you who followed “TheBruvs” on twitter will appreciate the fun that the boys had… real life this is exactly how Corky lived…..ALWAYS up for the next adventure. Playing up at the church, in fields of sheep, running in front of cars, stranded up trees laughing at a big German shepherd. He was a true wanderer, sometimes gone for days – BUT he always returned to his home, his food bowl and his cuddles……..his nine lives he used and when they ran out he just grinned and carried on….that was corky.

A few weeks ago we got that dreaded message that a  cat similar to our Corky had been knocked over…..sadly we brought him home for the last time.

I would like to think that he is now having an absolute ball up at Rainbow Bridge….I’m sure he is. He leaves behind a huge hole especially in the life of my daughter Alethea………

Raising a glass to you Mr Corky…..
