Gun-Hee Day

December 15th is Gun-Hee day. That was the day we got him.

This was our first photo together.

I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months since he died.

His brother, Rusty, also died from FIP on October 10. Their mother, Amber, also passed away shortly after. The cause of her death is not known; last I heard they were doing an autopsy to find that out. It was very sudden.

So much sadness in the little cat family.

I miss him every day. He was my little buddy.

I know I stopped the “Gun-Hee a Day” project 50 days short. I truly intended to finish it, but the truth is…I got to the point where I wasn’t sure if I was posting new photos or repeats…and since there’s no way to take new photos, I just stopped. When I started the project, it was beyond comprehension that he wouldn’t be alive at the end of the year.

That being said, I will continue next year with Angel, the little one-eyed Aby rescue that Gun-Hee found for me. You can follow her story at .

Thank you for being a part of Gun-Hee’s life.

I liked taking Gun-Hee to cat shows. He seemed to really enjoy meeting other Abys.

I miss Gun-Hee most in the mornings.
He used to hang out in the bathroom and help me get ready for work.

Even when he was sick, Gun-Hee would camp out and wait for treats.

Even when he was feeling bad, Gun-Hee still managed to look handsome and composed.

Between a trip to California and a nasty cold, I’ve missed doing the Gun-Hee a Day.

Sometimes Kylie would keep him company.
