I was truly hoping that this wouldn't happen for quite a few years to come, but sadly it isn't meant to be. My neighbour found Ginger about 30 mins ago, and sadly he had already gone. He was nowhere near the road, and had only left Harolds about 5 mins previously, so it looks like it is natural causes, not sure I can bring myself to have an autopsy done to make sure though. It was only a month ago I was celebrating his 15th birthday adn the fact I had had him for 4 years - none of mine have ever got to that age, or had that long with me. He was a very special cat, and will always hold a place in my heart, and I am trying to take some comfort in the fact that I picked him up from the streets, and that his teeth were so bad that he wouldnt have survived much longer if he had been left, so he got a wonderful 4 years here, and saw a lot of cats come and go - he can now go and meet his friend Snowy, the only one that he got on with. Everybody who met him loved him, he was such a little character, and was well known round here, esp to the houses he liked 'visiting'. My neighbours had never known such a laid back cat, nothing fazed him. RIP my little man.
