Cherie-Finesse mourns

Sad news is that Alida's mom died on 17 October 2011. On this photo, taken on 2 September 2011, she sits with Bobby. 
After my dad's death in 1994, my mother stayed on the family farm. But with so many farm killings in the area, I convinced her to move to Cape Town to stay with me. She was a dog person. but Bobby stole her heart with his super temperament. Bobby became her favourite cat. He spent many hours with her. They developed a special bond.

More sad news is that Finesse Dear Crystal was euthanized on the same day as my mother's passing. It was a double blow of sadness.
