A Tribute To Our Pet "Frisky"

Photograph of our very special pet cat Frisky Vale

Frisky, a very special friend and companion, passed away in July 2009. He was 11 years old and became ill suddenly due to kidney failure. He had not touched food or water for days when the vet and I decided that it would be kindest to euthanize him. Heart wrenching is an understatement. Frisky was extraordinary; having lots of character he would sit at the top of the driveway waiting for us to come home just as a dog would; he played games like hide and seek with my husband; and he was very affectionate and loving, curling up with us to watch TV and sleeping on our bed during the night. He is a huge loss.

 

I am grateful that I did his portrait a while ago and that not long before he became ill I took some photographs of him the one adjacent being one of them.

Frisky 1998-2009

 

We bought Frisky as a nine week old kitten from a local pet store and took him home in a large cardboard box. He was terrified but eventually settled down into his new home. He was always timid and most visitors never even saw him. During his first year of life he was hit by a car whilst running across the road to catch a bird. He was so frightened he would not let us near him to catch him. We eventually rang the vet in desperation and he came round and managed to throw a blanket over Frisky and take him to the vet surgery. He was there for a week and we did not know whether he would make it but he did although he had a permanently damaged left eye. He needed stitches in his stomach on two separate occasions after the car accident when the cat next door mauled him. Shortly after we moved house into a quiet cul de sac where he became 'King' of his cat neighbourhood.

 

Below is a selection of photographs we have taken over the course of Frisky's lifetime.
