Anakin Skywalker Hanckel

It's not often I post about personal stuff on my blog. It never seems appropriate. This is a place to share the beautiful families and the photos of their memories...not mine. 

But today I'm having a hard day and this feels like something I should do. Last Friday my beautiful cat, Anakin, died after a whirlwind 24 hours of vets and no sleep. We're still not sure what exactly happened, but the result is the same. We lost the little cat that had been everything to us. He was our glue, our joy, our anchor and someone we all delighted in sharing. He was loved by everyone who met him, even the dedicated cat haters (how can there be such a thing?!) and when he died the outpouring of grief for him took our breath away. Thank you to all of the beautiful people in our lives who've hugged and messaged us. 

So, this is in memoriam to him. Our darling boy and utter Love Lush. Ana-kit-kat, we miss you. xxx
