Dangers in the Garden- rest in peace Podge
I know this blog was meant to be full of nice pretty things but I need to get a message to people. On Monday our beloved cat, Podge, drowned. Climbing down from a fence he fell in the neighbours water butt which was two thirds full and drowned.
A tragic accident that could have been avoided had they taken the time to put the lid on properly or pop a brick on top to keep it secure.
I just cannot bear the thought of this happening to another cat. Words cannot describe how upset and heartbroken we both are. He was part of our family and at 1 years old he is gone. Never again we will hear his purr, see his little pink nose or have him cuddle us on a Sunday morning in bed.
So please pass this on to anyone with a water butt and if you have one or a similar rain catcher please take the time to make sure nothing can fall in and not get out.
Hopefully his ashes will back Monday and he can sit in his favourite place on the window ledge.
Loved always our little Podge xxx
