- summer 2003
are looking into the
distance - now we have to part.
- into the warm, bright light.
memory of your
sweet soul remains with me,
will never forget
Rico was the
progenitor of the Sparrow's
Nightmare Maine Coon Cattery. You can find characteristics of his
incomparable, gentle personality in many of his offspring. He treated
his ladies like a gentleman, his babies loved him as a patient father
and a careful playmate. Only one day after their birth would he lie in
the "nest" with them and warm and comfort them. We are pleased that we
have kept one of his daughters - that way we do not only remember
him, but are also reminded of him.
Every day with Rico
was like a gift -
unfortunately we were only afforded six short years with him. It hurts
so much not to have him with us anymore … we will never forget this
(Dschafar von Blue Moon Valley) 2004, at age of six years
last tested for HD, PKD and PL at the age of five in 2002 and in 2004,
when he was six, he was tested for HCM. At the time of the examinations
there were no signs of HD, PKD, PL and HCM or any other heart disease.
We still can't believe
that we lost him to kidney
failure at the age of only six and half years. We fought for him for
many weeks, but finally had to let him go on 26th April 2004, his
veterinay came to us in the evening and put him to sleep ...
