Rest in Peace, Ben. (Dial-up Warning)
October 8, 2004 -- November 24, 2005. We had to have him put to sleep on Thankgiving night, after a short illness (FIP-Virus). His adopted sister is doing fine.

:cry:

At 10 weeks old:


On the porch after a nap:


With Little Duckie:


In Bed:


On the back of his favorite chair by the window:


His adopted sister, Sonia (from another DU'er):

15. Aww, what a dear heart...
Look at his little ducky :)

I'm so very, very sorry. You are such a wonderful, kind, caring person to have opened your home to these kitties. Maybe when you're ready, you could give a home to another deserving and homeless kitty from a shelter...sounds like any kitty would be lucky to have you as their person ;)

:hug:

19. We do plan on adopting another kitty.
We have to wait another six weeks before adopting another ones, until we are sure the virus that might have been left around the house is dead (at least that is what the vet told us).

21. I'm so sorry. I lost my orange kitty
a bit more than a week ago. There is something about orange kitties- they are just so friendly.

He was such a playful kitty, and would put up with anything our 8 yr old daughter would do to him.
