Tragic Tuesday...

We've just had some pretty tragic news here... Our kitty friend at Silversmoke GC. Nile Golden Eye passed away last week at the age of just 2.5 yrs! They don't know why as yet, he'd not been sick and the autopsy shows nothing at all... Samples have therefore gone to the lab. As many of you know he was so nearly the father of Isis kittens and we had seriously considered him as her next mate! To say we're all gutted does not cover it... He was such an amazing mancat - he will be sorely missed by all who knew him! :( Our thoughts are much with Isis mate GC Silversmoke Dan Dare and his family at present...

That is furry sad. I wonder what the autopsy results will show. Purrhaps it was a good thing that Isis when with Dan Dare as a mate instead.

That is very sad indeed. So young! I sure hope its nothing genetic. Sometimes its just their time but that makes it even more sad.

Oh we're so sad to hear about this. He was way too young to go to the Bridge. I'm sure Chloe is helping show him around though. We'll purr for his family and friends who are sad. Lots of purrs!
