Changes, Bad and Good

Since my last post, our family had to say good-bye to our precious Halloween. Halloween would have been 17 in April, and spent many happy years providing head-bonks and cuddles to our family. When Nick was little, Halloween would follow John back to help tuck Nick in for the night. He'd leap up onto the dresser, then up onto the top bunk, bonk Nick's head, purr loudly, then head back down the hall. He was a lover. He was my "baby". We'll miss him very much. Rest In Peace, dear friend.

Halloween's passing left Gunston, now 1, bored and a little moody. After a couple of weeks, our family began the search for a new family member. We found her Augusta Regional SPCA. She's about 10 weeks old now and her name is Bella Tricks LeCat, called Bella or Monkey when she's being naughty, which is quite often. She's a small, we've set up a nursery of sorts in our bathroom. Gunston comes in to visit and get use to her under supervision. She's a feisty little thing! Here are some photos of their interaction. There's only one good photo of Bella, as she will not sit still long enough to get one!

So, so sorry for your loss. Pets are the very best memebers of our families. I am glad you have a new baby to love.
Have a great day,

I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure Halloween knows how much you miss him & I bet he is happy that you all adopted Bella to bring a little bit of happiness back into your lives.

I'm so sorry, she looks like a real sweetie! I think pets get an auto admit to heaven!
