RIP Mackerel

Our dear friend Mackerel has been gone a week now. He was ten years auld, nearly. Goodbye dear fellow.

Stuff people said

Best cat ever. Fact.
— SMT

He was a leader and a pacifist. He was prize-winning in size and had a patience with other animals and children alike.
— BMRT

He was the king of all cats for which I credit both his fabulous nature and also the way his mummy brought him up.

  1. A fitting tribute, thank you. Lovely to see those extra photos too - especially as that can only be Jeffrey in the penultimate one. We certainly don't have many of that fly-by-night.
    A light went out in the world today, they took my king of cats away...

  2. I've forgotten why "Jeffrey"? Pictures 1-4 are by SMT, 5 & 6 are by CL(T) and 7 is by PDT.

  4. Did you name that cat after me?
    I'm touched.
    How sad that he is gone.

  5. The name is just one of those awesome coincidences. I think it was to do with when he was very tiny the patterns in his fur looked like the patterns you see on a mackerel
