Hi there,
I meant to join you for months, even before I had my beautiful naked baby... then he arrived and there was no way for me to spend any time typing without him trying to help :)
Unfortunately, this is not the case anymore: my beautiful Grumpelstintskin fell ill with FIP, and 10 days ago I had to let go of him.
I don't know whether this is the right place to tell our story, but I have made it my business to make sure I do my bit to try and stop this happening to other people.

@littlegrumple , ((( hugs)) and my sincere condolences for your loss of Gumple- you avatar pic is very touching-
So many of us have lost a kitty suddenly and share your loss- there no words to take that pain away- you have found a lair family here- please know Little Grumple took your love with him to rainbows bridge where he is flying free and whole and healthy with our angels at the bridge..
We all learn and share with each other.. Thank you for having the strength for Grumple to tell his story..

Welcome new friend and... Is that gorgeous kitty in your avatar a bengal cat? A few of us have bengals and Sphynx kitties- I just wanted to say how gorgeous kitty is

Hello again, and thank you for welcoming me, and your kind words, they DO help.
@Yoda mom the cats in my avatar are Nettles (naughty Bengal) and Grumpelstintskin.
They were best of buddies, always cuddling together when they were not bouncing off the walls.
I got Grumple because Nettles was becoming too much for our other two resident oldies, and what an amazing experience that was!

@littlegrumple , awh.. Nettles is precious :)
I am sure in time ^Grumple^ angel will send you and Nettles "the one" to love in his honor.. To know the love he knew with you.
Yes, I personally know how "naughty" bengals can be :)
I hope you post some pics of your Nettles and two resident oldies in your album here on the lair- we luv all pics
It is obvious how much love you have in your heart for your babies..

Those amazing times are forever with you in your heart..

Hello and Welcome to The Lair. I am so sorry to hear of your unexpected loss. FIP is just heart wrenching. I cannot wait until they find a cure.
