I am so sorry to you all, for bringing this to your attention,

But I have had this brought to my attention and I cannot live a lie.

Mog the forgetful cat actually died (in 2003 wink)

I am shocked.

LOL! I was geniunely shocked when I saw the book and had to stop and read it in the middle of waterstones. Felt really sad afterwards (and still shocked!)

Don't rub it in.
Am already devastated.

NEVER let a child see that book.

S1ur Sun 28-Sep-08 22:45:29

Oh greyskull I am sorry for our loss

My children are fine with it - it's DH who can't cope.

I didn't know such a foul abomination of a book existed until very recently.

I blame mumsnet, I could have lived in ignorance.

I have to hide that book everytime we go into the library and my children are 12yo and 9yo rufty-tufty, hard as nails boys.

I know that they would weep.

DS went to pick up the Goodbye Mog story in the library.

I had to distract him with a book about rabbits.

moondog Sun 28-Sep-08 22:54:51

I am sandwiched between thread discussing Mog's demise and another showcasing Kewcumber's lillte boy.

I won't make it through the night.

moondog Sun 28-Sep-08 22:55:27

Slur, I only found our tonight!!!

HRHSaintMamazon Sun 28-Sep-08 22:56:09

what on earth are you all on about?

S1ur Sun 28-Sep-08 22:58:27

me too moony, I have begun to introduce Mog (the series of books by Judith Kerr) to my dc and now, now I am at a loss. Perhaps if I read slowly they will be teenagers by te time I finsh and the loss will be less painful for them.

I read this to my dd's when they were 4 and 6 and they were okay, it's a good book to talk about death.

[be strong]

mog died? OMG sad

Are you sure it was 2003. I am sure I remember the books from the 80s. Or am I thinking meg and mog?

TwoIfBySea Sun 28-Sep-08 23:26:50

I saw this in a shop a couple of years ago and felt bereft! Mog's Christmas got me through childhood, I still have it. I bought a collection of Mog stories for dts and that is one of them, it is a very well written story for anyone dealing with children having lost a beloved pet but still...not Mog!!!!

Many of the Mog books would have been around in the 80s, we had a couple for little brother/sister born in 1977 and 1980. Judith Kerr (author) must be in her 80s now as I believe the book When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit in which a 9 year old leaves Nazi Germany with her family in 1933 is based on her own experiences.

Yes I just heard. I appparently missed the 'we killed your cat' memo. I haven't read book some Flame mumsnetter bluntly dumped news on me.
