Found 12th May
Lots of people ask me about the other half of rachelandgromit, even thanking him for posting deals and today, as I sit here heartbroken, I wanted to share a little bit about Gromit. He was my cat that sadly passed away today. I'll always be rachelandgromit . . .

To the only man I've ever loved. I'll miss our cuddles, telling you my deepest, darkest secrets, you consoling me when I'm upset or Ill and just doing silly things to make me laugh. For nearly 19 years you have been my rock, my big ginger, antisocial, gorgeous boy. I'll miss you so much. RIP GROMIT.

Sad to hear this, this morning. They annoy you, they wake you up, the cry … Sad to hear this, this morning. They annoy you, they wake you up, the cry at walls, they demand everything, they sit on EVERYTHING, run into stuff and randomly roll around the house, drink from the freaking tap... But they do have a way of making you love them. Sorry for your loss, Rach



That is exactly right! I've cursed him more times than I can remember for being the cause of DIY disasters (Gromit and paint), losing work (Gromit and laptop/computer), waking me up late/far too early, and also provided many rescue missions (Gromit stuck on roof, fell into bath, got into somewhere he couldn't get out of)! He was old and I knew it was going to have to happen but it's awful when it does

Terribly sad news. He will be missed by all.

Dear Rachel (from another Rachel) My heart goes out to you. We enjoy the love, fun and friendship our pets provide but are then left with such a terrible void when they leave us. RIP Gromit. Hugs xxx

It sounds like Gromit had a happy and well loved 19 years.

He looked a nice cat, you must have looked after him.

Gromit

He looks just like my Rupert. Big useless thing that drives me to distraction and bullies his sister but I wouldn't be without him. Sending you hugs

Big hugs...Beautiful cat..Thank you for sharing your thoughts of him x

Can't put it better than that myself , I know you shouldn't have favourite pets ( or is that children ?) , but there's always one that continues to remains special no matter how many come before or after. Big virtual hug to you Rachel x

We lost our Cat this month too, sad news xx

Sorry to hear this it's always really hard when you loose a fury friend. Bless you Gromit x

I'm so sorry for your loss the day every cat lover wishes would never come. 19 is a fantastic age, he must have been a very happy, very well looked after cat. I hope that brings you some pride and comfort, even though you must be in a lot of pain.

Thank you everyone. My cheeky boy is now at peace in the garden so horrible, he was a spoilt cat and lived a long age so for that I'm grateful.

We had a beautiful giant Maine **** who we adopted from the local shelter. He totally dominated the house from day one, totally loved and spoilt till the end. Feel your lost.

So sorry Rachel. Glad you brought such joy to each other's lives.

RIP little Gromit..

I love my cat Nancy and will be proper heartbroken when she goes ..
she's adorable and annoying at the same time.. constantly waking you up in the middle of the night either clawing at your feet if they stick out or headbutting you to play... she sits by my leg when i'm trying to have a dump just so that i'll turn the sink tap on for her to have a drink.. waits for me to finish my cereal so she can have the milk.. knows when i'm putting food in her dish (even when she's outside) .. has a cat flap but will still sit by the door looking up at you to open the door for her instead!

Cats are amazing creatures .. people say they don't show love and affection the same as dogs but i disagree ..
