Summer Time Ends Sunday

 Six years ago the day the clocks went forward, Äiti lost her beloved Monty-cat. He was a street boy from Bristol, like Stran, and was an elderly kitty with thyroid problems when Äiti adopted him back in the UK. He was a grumpy old man, devoted to Äiti who was able to take him for walks on a lead (which is regarded as a crazy thing to do in England).
I only knew him for a very short time, as I was handed in to ystävämme eläinlääkäri on the day he visited her and was diagnosed with end-stage CRF.  A few days later he left us. He was very kind to me though and I know how sad perheeni was to lose him. 
So, although we like being able to have an extra hour's sleep, we do always remember Monty.

What a precious little nugget you were! And arrived just in time to receive Monty's blessing and to be a comfort to Aiti when he ran off to the Bridge.

Monty was a handsome fellow. Hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sleep. We don't set our clocks back yet. They do it after Halloween here.

How sad, CRF is an awful disease. Monty was a handsome kitty.

You came to Aiti to help heal her grieving heart when Monty knew he couldn't stay any longer. You allowed him to cross with a lightened heart knowing you would give Aiti a reason to find joy again. Hopefully Aiti will see a special tail and recognize it as Monty's as she watches the night sky.
