Goodbye Bill the Cat

Bill the Cat died peacefully in sleep on Tuesday afternoon while it rained outside. He was napping in the computer room when his heart must have given up and he passed. This was not expected and we’re suffering from shock at the sudden loss.

What we will miss about Bill the Cat…. 

Seeing him sleep in the garden.

The crunching sounds he makes when he eats.

The kitten alarm clock. Walking us at all hours.

The kitten snooze button was Brent putting a hand on his body and he’d start purring and enjoy a cuddle.

Bill the cat walked heavy. We could always hear him coming or wondering if we had an elephant in the house.

The way he’d claw his way up the side of the bed to sleep with us.

He would gently paw Brent’s hand to get attention. If that failed he’d lick your head or claw at any available body part.

How he loved to hide in the hostas.

When he would sleep outside he would be so still we often said we should draw a chalk outline.

Mostly we miss Bill the Cat’s breathing and heart beat.

He was a nippy cat and would often nip at Brent when he was giving him attention. Or scratching.

Kitten belly rubs were a big no-no

Worrying about him when he would go on his adventures.

We’d be searching for him around the cottages and he would meow and run to us.

How he welcomed our new tenants and the impact he had on visitor’s lives. Everyone always asks about Bill the Cat.

Cat hair on everything.

We miss booping his nose.

That he was an internet sensation:

We love and miss you Bill the Cat.
