Hello, Another Newbie Here!

I found this forum doing research on kidney disease. My sweet
Sampson was diagnosed recently.

Besides my big guy, I have 3 other wonderful companions. There is
our resident diva Delilah, the ever so playful Pumpkin, and Honu, the
smiling turtle.

Three of my blessed friends have crossed over within the last 3 years.
Max, my rock, my very best friend, developed a large tumor on his tongue.
I had to make the decision the same day. :cry: He gave me over 14 years
of unconditional love.

Squeaky passed less than a year later. He was 12. He had thyroid problems,
as well as kidney disease. Constantly full of life and always talking.

Stimpy was Squeaky's brother. I had to make the decision for him about
a year and a half ago. He had diabetes but it was cancer that took his
sweet soul away from me.

I love to take pictures and I am more than happy to share them! This seems
like such a nice, supportive place. :thumbs up

hi, welcome to the forum, sounds like a wonderful family you have, can I ask, besides the turtle....dogs? cats? or both?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Sorry, all three are cats. I've had a few wonderful canine companions
over the years but not currently.

Hello PumkinPal, and welcome!! Pictures are always a joy to see!! I love all the kissable little faces :cloud9:
I am fairly new here as well, but the people have been amazingly friendly, very supportive (have medical issues with a new family member) and extremely insightful. There's alot of wisdom around here :thumbs up
