RIP Marble

Ah, Sweet Baby Marble Purrpot. You are greatly missed on the farm. I love this photo so much because it has DH with his much loved kitties but even more so, it has Marble’s daddy cat Sunny.  Sunny was the father is Mable, Faith and Patrick. He gave us the most outstanding farm cats, friendly, cuddly but outstanding hunters.  Marbles mother did not hunt so Sunny took the task on to teach the kittens how to be hunters. I have never seen a more active father cat.   He was fixed at the same time as the kittens were, so those three will be the only sunny kittens we will have.

This picture shows why she was called marble.. I loved her markings from the moment she joined our world.

Hubby and Mable had a bond from the very start, Patrick was my boy and Faith willingly shares herself with both of us but Marble was not as outgoing so hubby took it on himself to make sure she got lots and lots of people time so she would come out sweet..  O yes, she was sweet

Got room for me dad??

Sadly Marble was hit and killed on our road. It does happen but normally by the time they are two years old, they are pretty careful. She was never much for leaving the farm, unlike some of the farm cats that cross the road daily to hunt in the woods. I was not home when it happened and I can tell you when we drove up and had just thought.. Home after a very long day, the last thing we expected to see was her on the side of the road.

Marble was only with us for 2 an half years but she takes a part of our hearts with her..

    Losing them young and in such a way, without having the chance to say goodbye is devastating.

    Big hugs to you both, and the other beings you share your life with who miss her as well.

    Bon Voyage, Marble. 😦

    • Thanks Widdershin, it was a shock for sure, at least we knew what happened as sad as it was. I will always wonder if someone took my sweet Freckles Kitty or what happened to her as she just went missing. Her best friend kitty still calls for her a few times a day, she is missed by more then just us.
