Rolly (pet) – 17/08/04 – 20/02/10
Friday, 19th of February 2010 was the last day I ever saw Rolly, just before going to my dad’s house, lying there on my bed. The last time she was seen was the 20th of February. At the time of writing this, it was 2 weeks after her disappearance…….so I thought it was safe to say that we would not be seeing her again (turned out to be correct).
It was just so god damn unfair that she had to be taken away from us…..and very possibly for her life to be taken away from her, as now at this stage the likelihood of her being dead is almost certain, but I do not have a clue what happened, so I can’t say for certain, but frankly….it don’t matter, the fact is she isn’t here. She was such a happy and playful cat, always being pampered and spoilt by many different people.
We got Rolly as a kitten, around 2 months old, in August 2004 and she settled into the new surroundings very quickly. At the time of disappearance, Rolly had been with us for exactly five and a half years and she wasn’t even 6 yet. So young. So tragic. Five and a half years is nothing…..Rolly should have been around for at least another 5-10 years…..but c’est la vie, eh? So cruel and unpredictable on so many different levels.
But those five and a half years are packed full of generally wonderful memories…..but somehow it’s the memories which hurt the most. RIP………..??
Thanks for reading, true story. Almost made it sound as if it was a member of the family dying/going…..that’s because she was.
