Not long after we moved to Dandenong from Croydon, I happened to go cat toy shopping with a group of like-minded friends from an on-line forum I frequent, Cat-World.
On the very last stop, we were assulted by the CUTEST and tiniest kittens, mostly red and red & white shorthair domestics, that had been dropped-off...err...dumped, at the shop as they do take on unwanted kittens to be re-homed once all the vet work was done. As these ones were 'fresh' and they knew I would do all the vet-work asap, I was told I could take one if I wanted.
So I rung home to talk to the family... the kids and I were able to wear down the husband, and I chose a little red tabby domestic.
He was a very CUTE little bundle of fluff and quickly had us all wrapped around our paws... including the Ragdoll kittens we raised him with!!
Even our two Greyhounds loved him, especially angel who was still a big puppy!!
Dom had a VERY full show career, too... until his love of FOOD stopped his continuance on the show bench!! lol
Sadly Dom was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the tender age of 7yo, and at the end, he showed us when it was his time.
His presence will always be felt here at Furrballz, and his quirky affectionate nature is sadly missed.
After the long, hard slog of going back to study after a 22 year break, Terri-Ann had her Graduation ceremony to celebrate her achievement of attaining the Advanced Diploma of Accounting at Chisholm.
This achievement was celebrated with some of Terri-Ann's biggest supporters through her study, her Husband, Father, Aunt, her 3 Children and her eldest son's Girlfriend.
Hugs and Kitty Kisses,
