With a heavy heart we announce the
Joe was an amazing boy, who was a great show cat [until he
got bored with all that] a wonderful pet, and a charming stud cat. I could go on
for hours with little anecdotes about him, his funny ways, his kind nature, his
TV watching habits. He has left a big hole in our hearts. It has been a bad time
in the last year, partly because many of our cats are ageing, Joe was 12
1/2yrs but still young and beautiful, but cancer again crept in and stole
another wonderful boy. I am coming to the conclusion that either food, or
regular vaccination may play a part in the number of cancers in cats, of course,
big business will never accept this, but, it makes you wonder??
We are very sad to report the passing of
EC Kagoza Achilles
He became suddenly unwell, and we discovered he had
a huge intestinal lymphoma. Within days, and with a heavy heart, we had to say
goodbye to this wonderful boy, and I held him tight in my arms for the last
He sired some gorgeous kittens, but beside that, he
was a marvellous pet, living indoors among his friends and family, he never
sprayed, was a complete gentleman with the ladies, loved his kisses, and was a
dream to show, he needed 25 certificates to become European Champion [now called
Supreme Champion], which he won in 26 shows. I cannot tell you how much he will
be missed. Sleep well big fella, taken from us too soon.
RIP EC Kagoza Achilles

Veterinary Surgery, Ham Hill, Kent, http://www.sandholevets.com/NewsArea/Braveheart/2007/11/Evangeline/
to close a PDA, [a blood vessel that
should have closed shortly after birth] She has now made a full recovery,
and should live a normal lifespan. See details via link above

Eva has never stopped purring, even shortly after
her op, and earned the love of all the veterinary surgery staff, she is a
remarkable, and beautiful cat!
She is sweet and loving, but can be bossy

With much regret I must report that our beautiful Alaska has passed away, after
a short illness, which on autopsy, was found to be an aggressive cancer which
had affected his bowel, stomach and liver. We never get over losing our babies,
and Alaska was particularly young, beautiful, and incredibly sweet natured. My
only solace is that one day, we will all be reunited over that rainbow, and
indulge in furry kisses for ever.
