I don't know if this is the right thing to do, and I'm so sorry if not.

catthiefkeith passed away today.

I know there are mumsnetters who know her know how amazing she is, and I just wanted to raise a glass to her memory on here, where she brought a smile to so many faces with her stories of her mad life.

Rest in peace lovely lady.

She certainly was one of a kind.

I just caught sight of this awful news on another thread and it made me gasp. I will really miss CatThiefKeith's posts; a lovely, lovely lady. Such incredibly sad news. Condolences to her family and friends. sadthanks

catthiefkeith you will live on, long beyond your years. A true legend. Taken way too soon. RIP crazy cat/balcony/boat/tent etc lady.
Absolutely tragic.

I donated on the previous one as did others, she truly was a spark of life
How on earth can that be just suddenly gone? ☹️

I've donated. CTK will live on in MN's gallery of most loved rogues.

Thank you so much xx thanks

@KnottyAndPistey are there any plans for a Wooly Hug? I'm sure I'm one of many who would really really like to pick up our needles and wool in Keith's memory thanks

TheDailyWail Thu 31-Aug-17 19:31:10

I would too.

derxa Thu 31-Aug-17 20:11:25

I will say this I think that MNHQ email round up for CTK was pathetic.
Sorry I can't knit or crochet or I'd donate in a heartbeat.

I'm going to order some flowers and take them to the funeral. If anyone wants me to add their mn name I'm going to start a thread and just post on there and I'll add you.

I think I'll get YANBU in letters but if anyone has any better ideas please let me know.

I've already had some pm's so will add those names too of course.

Catzpyjamas Fri 01-Sep-17 21:50:13

That's a good idea MrsKoala flowers

MyPatronusIsAUnicorn Fri 01-Sep-17 23:13:33

I'm sure there will be many names on there MrsKoala, a lovely idea and will show just how many posters she touched/amused over the years. Truely a poster in a million. I remember her saying her life wasn't that exciting. Nonsense of course, she always had a brilliant story to tell.

mineofuselessinformation Fri 01-Sep-17 23:21:10

That's a lovely idea, MrsK.
Please add mine.

derxa Sat 02-Sep-17 05:21:39

Please add my name MrsK

MrsKoala Sat 02-Sep-17 07:26:52

Will add you all, thanks.

Here is the flowers thread if anyone wants to add a little message i'm happy to attach that as well.

Feeling sad. Been putting it off. sad

KnottyAndPistey Sat 02-Sep-17 10:26:03

Morning, re the Woolly Hug, we really hope so - we will be writing to CTK's DH via Facebook to offer, this was partly why we just wanted to find out when her funeral was taking place sad

Planning to write over the weekend, lovely @slithytove is going to be helping us contact him.

SavoyCabbage Sat 02-Sep-17 15:08:42

I just laughed at the YANBU flowers idea. Perfect.

PacificDogwod Sat 02-Sep-17 15:42:55

MrsKoala, you are a genius! smile

I'd be honoured to be added too.

Flumplet Sat 02-Sep-17 18:16:40

I'm so gutted by this. Keith and I had such fun one rainy afternoon prank calling her boss. She was a diamond and I'll really miss her.

derxa Sat 02-Sep-17 18:21:43

KnottyAndPistey i always tear up when I see your posts. You are among the better ones as DS likes to say. grin
