Arrival Story:
My then future sister-in-law was kitten-sitting for a friend who wasn't sure if she would be able to keep him (he was 7 weeks old at the time.) Long story short, we were so sad to see him go when the friend came back but when she found out we were interested, he was ours!

Our poor Beeters had a heart of gold but he was a very sick kitty. He had recurrent bouts of FUS and passed away in 1998 during his 4th surgery to remove bladder crystals. Our vet had grown to love him just as much as we had and I will never forget his tearful, heartbreaking call to let us know Skeeter didn't pull through. He was only 2 when he passed on but we are thankful for the short time we had with him and the joy he brought us!
