Six Years On...

Little Stormie…another Furry Fighter Day is upon us and it's 6 years since we last saw you. Castle is an old boy now, 18.5 years, which you would have been too seeing as you're his sister and litter-mate. Castle has a mild kidney issue, but nothing alarming, just normal for his age. His friend Tigger is even more ancient and just turned 19 a few months ago, he also has some mild health issues - kidneys, hyperthyroidism, and pancreatitis! All normal conditions for an oldie really - but he takes a couple of tablets for those and he seems active, happy and well. At least they are on the same special diet and can eat the same food! Castle absolutely ballooned on your special food when you were trying to put on weight during the chemo, but I could never get you to eat separately! I think you'll recognise the look on their faces in the picture below…your favourite face to make...CHICKEN FACE! Anyway, they are very close, Tigger is a very good companion for your brother, but of course nothing can replace you little lady, we miss you so much still. Sending love to our old friends in the Cat Blogosphere, we hope you are all well! xxx

Thanks for the update on Castle and Timmy.

We think of Stormie often and what a fight she put up to stay with you. We will always remember the Furry Fighter.

So glad to read this update. We were thinking of you guys the other day and wondering if you are still with us. You both look really good for your age in the photo.

We remember Stormie. And Timmy.

We were very glad to see your post. Such lovely tribute to Stormie you made and thank you for updating us. Since you last posted in June of 2013, I lost Abby. She crossed over the RB in August of 2013, and then in Feb of this year I also lost Gracie to lymphoma. I did adopt another manx, named Annabelle in December of 2013. So some sad losses and one happy addition. Keeping Castle in our purrs.

Even though it's a sad anniversary, it is good to hear from you. Stormie gave you many good memories and is forever loved.

We still think of Storm and you and Castle and Tigger often and wonder how you are. We so appreciate the update. I can't believe it's been six years.

The CB has honored Stormie today and we just wanted to stop by and tell you we were thinking of you on this date. Wishing you well.
