Bongo Fury Count T'One

Post by Zoundz on Fri Aug 16, 2013 9:54 am

My lovely old Mink lad Count has finally made his way to the bridge. He was a lovely lad, and gone two - and he'd been slowing down a lot lately, with his back legs going and his kidneys not being fab. He soldiered on though, and I thought about having him put to sleep, but he was still the first at the food bowl, and the first to investigate a new toy and burrow into things <3 so I let him carry on, then today we just found him asleep. I'm grateful that he waited until we were back from Donegal, as I got a last cuddle :*)

Count was a lovely kitten, and being a Mink, the first I'd bred (he rather 'fell' out of my lines!), I kept him. I love Mink anyway, and he was such a sweet boy from the start. He grew into a fabulous adult, and I'm always upset that we never got to breed him as he did so well and was never ill or grumpy in his life - a perfect gent.

Count was such a beautiful, friendly, special lad - everyone loved him, he had quite a few fans in his life, meeting and greeting was something he did well Smile and I will so miss having him here to introduce to newbies <3

Run free my gorgeous boy - go and find Ori and Wart <3











This is for him, because well... it's him...

The Song Of The Count - The Count

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIniljT5lJI

You know that I am called the Count
Because I really love to count
I could sit and count all day
Sometimes I get carried away

I count slowly, slowly, slowly getting faster
Once I've started counting it's really hard to stop
Faster, faster. It is so exciting!
I could count forever, count until I drop

1! 2! 3! 4!
1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4

I count the spiders on the wall...
I count the cobwebs in the hall...
I count the candles on the shelf...
When I'm alone, I count myself!

I count slowly, slowly, slowly getting faster
Once I've started counting it's really hard to stop
Faster, faster. It is so exciting!
I could count forever, count until I drop

1! 2! 3! 4!
1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4, I love counting!
That's the song of the Count!
xx

I'm so sorry to hear this Laura Sad he was such a lovely classic BF boy. I remember looking after him once when he was young and he was a delight - as they all were. I'm pleased that I got a chance to know him. He was a real gent *hug*
