Stretch one in a million

Post by madaboutdoodles » 26 May 2011, 22:36

:( We are all very upset here this evening as Stretch sadly passed away earlier
Stretch had been with myself and hubby even before we had the boys or Cass and Sadie, he had such a great character and was not impressed when we first bought Cass home :D right from the beginning he showed her who was the boss in this house and she definately developed a great respect for him. Many the time when she was younger and bouncy, we would see her running around the garden with Stretch chashing her and boy would she be in trouble if he caught her :lol:
When Cass's Sweet delights came along, all 14 of them, we couldn't believe how good and tolerant he was with them and he done an amazing job of teaching them exactly how to behave around cats. Off course Sadie absolutely loved him right from the start, although Stretch didn't take any notice and soon showed her again who was boss.
After Cass's Tiny Tipples came along I thought he might leave home :lol: and I can imagine he thought " Not another lot" :lol: but again he showed us how amazing he could be with the puppies.
We are very greatful to him for helping us with the puppies, it was amazing to see him with them, he has been such a major part of our lives for so long, he will be greatly missed, the boys are so upset :( but deep in our hearts we know it's best as he is now not suffering
Goodbye Stretch xx

Here he is, keeping an eye on some of the puppies

Are you my mummy?

I keep telling them I'm not their daddy!

Here's Daniel trying to keep Stretch and Cass happy

Stretch loved to sleep on the sofa

It wasn't just Cass and Sadie that likes dressing up in this house

As he got older, he also started to loose a lot of his teeth, so we also got lots of dribble, it was a case of duck when he shook his head :D

RIP Stretch xx

Trish, Dave

Oh no, I am so sorry that Stretch has gone on his final journey. I know how much he was such an important part of your family.

Stretch, you really were a One in a Million puss and I hope you find peace (without puppies) in your next world.

What a superbly handsome cat and some wonderful photos.
Truly missed but never forgotten.
Clyde shares his lot with Ollie - 16 year old cat in charge!
I know one day we will have to deal with such a day ( again - 2 previous cats have gone before).
Thinking of you all.

I'm so sorry - he really was one in a million wasn't he. It is heartbreaking when you lose such a much-loved pet. :cry:

Trish & family, so sorry to hear you have lost Stretch. From this and your other post he was clearly an active and important part of your family. I particularly loved hearing how he coped with the pups arrival and how he showed them the way. :lol:

You might remember we lost our old boy, Rooney last year. Even though my daughter was almost grown up we made a 'happy memory' book all about his 16 years with us. I know she still flicks through it now and says it helps.

RIP Stretch x

It looks like Stretch knew much love and happiness in his lifetime with you. Sorry for your families loss, glad he does not have to suffer.

RIP Stretch-hope heaven is full of comfy sofas, cuddles and of course some pups to keep in check.....

Thank you everyone for your kind words, it will be hard to get used to him not being here :( but he has bought us so many happy memories and for that we are thankful, he certainly was a one in a million :D

Thanks for the nice idea about the memory book Tracy :D
:lol: Becky, yes I'm sure he would be quite happy to keep his eye on some more puppies :lol:

RIP Stretch xx

Trish, Cass and Sadie
