Hello, Goodbye

A few weeks before we moved, Gimli got sick - real sick. She lost a third of her body weight in what seemed like just a few weeks and the diagnosis was not good. Not wanting to put her through the additional stress of moving home (or Bilbo the stress of potentially losing a friend AND being in a new home) we came to the difficult decision to put her to sleep.

We have had 14 lovely years with her, and now she is with her brother Frodo who we sadly lost about 5 years ago.

So...then we moved, and Bilbo is doing really great - but we felt he was a little lonely having been Gimli's companion for the past few years.

Introducing Bella...

Glad to see you back. Sorry that you lost Gimli. Funny how the little brats worm their way into your heart. It's almost as bad as losing a human friend. Glad you have a new one for Bilbo. Two are always good for one another. I have three in the house, one too many, but can't part with any of them. Just more litter box duty for me!

Please send some pics of your new house when you have the chance. I'm sure it's wonderful.
