RIP William

A very special resident of Frog End sadly passed away this week. William moved in only two months after we did and very quickly made the place his home. He was with us through all the changes to our house and garden and even approved of most of them (the ponds became his personal drinking bowl for a year or two, the deck his sun lounge, the radiators his paw warmers and the French doors gave him hours of entertainment staring into or out from the house).Although already in retirement (aged 13) and beginning to show the signs of the skin cancer that was to plague him for the rest of his life he arrived and remained a very cheerful and friendly tabby.

William's first week - October 2007
In the lounge - November 2007
Drinking from the pond - August 2008
Helping to open Christmas presents in Formby - December 2008
On the newly laid lawn - May 2009
Enjoying the new bench and the lawn - June 2009
Taking it easy in the kitchen - June 2010
Enjoying some sunshine with his new friend the fig tree during his last week - September 2011.
William you were a very special puss and will be hugely missed.
