January 2011 - One day after New Year Kiddy started calling so after I called Laszlo Németh (Okonor Cattery) I immediatly booked a flight right away and went to Budapest with her to meet her fiancé: Okonor Timur. Kiddy gave birth to her second litter 9 weeks later
Auntie Fasty and Kiddy's kittens (from her second litter born on March, 7th, 2011)

Gina left on July 7th: I took the train to Paris with her to meet Céline who was there for work that day!
Love that picture, I have a baby face, haven't I? :-)
August 2011: we made a lovely trip to Munich to show some cats (Lenka, Galak, Vinou). Flint was supposed to come and I had registered him for the show, but short before we left, something seemed to be wrong so I let him in good hands at the vet hospital
Fifé Show in Munich, Germany (August 2011)
Galvin was BIS both days
Unfortunately when I was back from Munich, on Monday the exams showed that Flint was suffering from esophageal stricture, and we couldn't save him, he died two days after surgery was performed
Flint crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday, August 25th, 2011
RIP my love...
N.B. : I separated from JF and have been back to being single after almost 4 years together. However we still live together and it seems that we do better as friends :-)
