Tiny Tim

by Marsha
(Evanston, IL, USA)

Timmy was nineteen when he died three years ago and I still miss him dreadfully.

When he was born he was half the size of his littermate and I didn't expect him to survive long, so he got the name Tiny Tim.

Shortly before he died, he insisted on going outside to see his friends, the horse and the sheep. Here's this little (and, at that time) skinny cat tottering out to see his friends. So, of course, I picked him up so that he could visit his friends.

Leena's comment

Oh how touching! I can so relate to the small cat -story. You see my "heart cat" Bertha was an Abyssinian and quite small. She was smaller than average, and even her tail was much shorter, we called it "Sting" after the sword Frodo got from Bilbo in The Lord of the Rings.

But oh boy was she a character! She made it clear to the neighbor's dog whose yard he was trying to enter, and our other cats, twice her size, admitted she was the boss.

When it was her time to go, I took her in my lap, wrapped in a soft scarf, and took her to our balcony. There we sat for half an hour, so she could listen to the spring birdsong and feel the sunshine once more while I waited for hubby to drive home and take us to the vet I had called earlier, having seen her fall from her feet to the floor. She was almost 18, so thin and frail that I took up the phone and made the appointment.

So there we sat, together for the last time. I thanked her for the wonderful years and she looked at me with eyes that knew she was leaving for the Rainbow Bridge.

When we got to the vet, she quietly passed away leaving an empty space in my heart that was no match to her tiny size - it was huge.

Isn't it amazing how much you can miss a tiny cat?

Leena's Books


This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
