Not a wargaming subject I know but I would like to share this all the same. Misty, our beloved Persian had to be put to sleep this evening as his viral condition had taken too much out of him and his recovery was extremely doubtful. We are all feeling pretty down at the moment and his idiosyncratic ways will be sadly missed. His liking for sleeping in the laundry basket or with his head in anybodies shoes had been noted on many occasions - as had his irrational fear of silver foil. He often enjoyed sleeping on my lap upside down and with his paws in the air - looking like he had just been shot. SWMBO would spend hours grooming him and his attempts to avoid this were legendary. He was noisy and not the most agile of cats - his landing technique could best be described as a controlled crash - but he was a good friend and a cornerstone of the family.
R.I.P. Bubs (I have no idea why we called him that!) but at least the Magpies won't be able to get you now.
