Wednesday Wonderings...

Well after the sad news yesterday, I've done a lot of wondering about stuff... Mostly I've thought about how lucky I am to be here with My Mummy and how sad it is for my former owners to have lost GC Nile Golden Eye at such a young age! He was my replacement as their second Stud cat, when I told them (in no uncertain terms) that I needed a proper home and a real Mummy... ;)

My Mummy phoned Silversmoke last night and they were so pleased that she'd taken the time to let them know that she was thinking of them at this time... They are still in shock, especially the food lady there as she had been out watching Goldie play at 1pm and had returned just a few hours later to bring him is dinner - this is when she found him already dead, but not long gone... She is a very loving Food Lady, so she's currently a very sad one. It seems that Goldie has left a son behind who they hope to be able to carry on his line with as a stud, he also left a daughter who's a queen and who'll hopefully have a litter of kittens later this year - giving them another chance to get a stud boy with some of his characteristics. The autopsy revealed nothing, but lab results are still being waited on before they can be sure it was just a fluke of nature... Until then they won't breed any of his line.

The Food Lady at Silversmoke is however very, very pleased to hear that Isis is doing so well with Dan's kittens! :) She too is looking forward to seeing the kitten photos...!

We are so sorry to hear about Goldie. :( It is always hard when someone goes to the Rainbow Bridge, especially when they are so young and it is so sudden. Hugs and purrs to the family and friends of Goldie.

It was very sad about Goldie. I hope they can find out what happened. I think it would be hard not to know.

I am so sorry to learn the sad news about your friend. It must be difficult not knowing what happened, especially since he was so young.

That is sad, and it was so sudden. I'm glad you're with your mummy, too.

Try not to think about it too much Ramses. You could drive yourself crazy. I am glad you are in a great home with wonderful siblings and beans.

Oh Ramses,I am so sorry to hear about Goldie. It brings to mind the very sudden passing of my little brother last March at almost 4 years. He was playing on the porch and 10 minutes later he was gone,we do not know why :(
I am happy you have your wonderful home now.
Purrs for Goldie and his people.
