'On Wednesday 11th March 2015, sometime in the early morning, we lost our wonderful little black Shadow, just 2/12 years old, run down by a car.
Shadow was the sweetest, softest, happiest Cat I have ever known. Always willing to be carried, hugged and tickled. Always ready to play 'stick' on the garden; to jump up on your knee and turn pretzel-like in your lap.
We rescued Shadow and his brother from Far-Place Animal Sanctuary in the Wear Valley, and raised them from kittens. My only consolation is that Shadow had the happiest of homes. Never wanting for anything; never being miss-treated, and never lacking for affection, which he returned in abundance.
My wife and I are poorer for your loss. We will miss you forever.
Jason and Linda
