Our beautiful and tiny black purrbox of a kitten died last night.

I found him beneath the bed, cold and unmoving, and thought he had already passed. He was able to mew piteously and we rushed him to the emergency vet but he was so far gone that he had to be put down. I'm glad we got those last minutes with him, that he was out of pain and knew we were there, but it's incredibly painful to lose him so suddenly and so young. FIP is to blame; we need to get the other kitties checked to make sure they're okay.

They're all quite baffled and shaken by it, especially dear Frodo, who took to Strider almost immediately. They've been very close and he clearly is at a loss about what to do without his little shadow and cuddlemate.

I know I haven't updated much; there've been happier things, I promise.

I'm so sorry that happened Amy. Is there anything I can do? It isn't as easy for cats to catch it from one another as some people think, at least that is what my vet at the animal rescue says. I'm a bit taken aback that your kitty wasn't tested for it before being sent home with you.
If and when you get ready to adopt again would you consider coming and seeing a couple of beauties that I've been handling over at the cat rescue?

Oh, hon, I'm so sorry. I'm glad you got to be with him and he was aware of you. :gives you virtual hugs until I can give you the real thing:
