Atilla’s song

Atilla had her own song, “Lavender Blue“.

I used to sing it to her when she was not well or during the car journey to the vet.  The song caught my attention as her cheek patches were a light, lavender blue colour & of course she was green. 

The lyrics were changed slightly to make more sense.  For example, instead of “dilly dilly”, I sang “‘Tilly, ‘Tilly“.  Instead of “I’ll need a queen”, I sang “You are our queen“.

A couple of weeks before she passed on, another song came into my head – “To Know Her is to Love Her“.  No need to explain why that song seemed appropriate…
