Arrival Story: This little girl showed up about four years ago, eating the bread we threw out for the birds. She came back once and then I didn't see her for a long time. She wanted affection just as much as the food we gave her...she would get so happy, she would "dance" thus, the name, Dancin' Girl!
The second day she came back, I decided to bring her in. It was in December and getting mighty cold outside. I kept her in the shop as the older cat does NOT like cats! Gradually we brought her in to introduce her to her Big Sister, who still hates her guts! She likes to irritate her and they both have hissy fits every now and then. But, she has now graduated to being a house cat and is quite comfortable with it! I finally found out that she belonged to a neighbor who had 11 outdoor cats and pleaded that we would love to have her...so now she is a delightful part of our family! Opps....I'm a Cat Burglar!
I have updated her info a bit as she has now been with us for over four years. She is a total delight. A silly girl with a great sense of humor and lots of love. Her life is very busy keeping track of her two humans. She runs nearly the whole day. I wish I had an ounce of her ambition! She is a comedian and keeps me laughing! I am so glad we included this little girl as part of our family.
The funny part about this whole thing is, Mr. Daddy, is a cat hater. but, for some reason, this little girl has attached herself to his heart as much as she attaches herself to his leg with her little head butts.
Everyone that comes in this house is fascinated with her. She's just that kind of cat. They need to touch her marble-like fur and many wonder if I cut her missing tail off!!! Nope, didn't do that, she is a Manx. And if all Manx cats are like her, I wish I'd have had a dozen in my lifetime!!!
Bio: Manx cats have assorted types of tails. Some have a small one, some are curled, some have none. They have a little tuft of hair to fancy things up a bit. Ususally, their back legs are longer, somewhat like a rabbits. Dancer certainly has that trait and when I watch her attack something...ususally her sister...sometimes she does a bunny hop!
She's a cutie, for sure. I don't know if it's a Manx trait for them to lay on their backs a lot, but, Dancer sure does it a lot. Maybe she just knows how darn cute it is. Works for me. She gives me a lot of smiles and comfort.
Sure do love her.
MOMMIE HAS BEEN FIGHTING THE CANCER SO WE DON'T GET ON HERE MUCH ANYMORE. I MISS MY FRIENDS. YOU ARE ALL SO SPECIAL! WE MET SO MANY BEAUTIFUL CATS AND PEOPLES HERE!
MOMMIE IS DOING A BIT BETTER AND IS OFF CHEMO FOR NOW. HOPING THAT SHE WILL NOT HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN, BUT, THEY DON'T THINK IT WILL EVER GO AWAY COMPLETELY. I PRAY SO. SHE GOT A LITTLE PEAKED AND OFF HER FEED FOR AWHILE THERE AND HAD A LOT OF PAIN.
BUT, SHE IS STARTING TO FEEL BETTER NOW. I HAVE BEEN AMUSING HER, AS USUAL. IT'S MY JOB TO MAKE HER GIGGLE ON THOSE YUCKY DAYS. I DO A GOOD JOB OF IT TOO!!! I'M FUNNY!
REMEMBER, WE MAY NOT BE ON HERE A WHOLE LOT, BUT, WE LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH!
MOMMIE SAYS SHE LOVES OUR CATSTER FRIENDS! THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!
MOM HAS BEEN DOING CHEMO ONCE A WEEK, FOR THREE WEEKS AND THEN, SHE SKIPS ONE WEEK. SHE IS GLAD BECAAUSE SHE GETS TO SKIP CHRISTMAS WEEK! SHE WILL DO ONE MORE SET OF CHEMO (3 TREATMENTS) AND THEN, THEY WILL DO AN MRI TO SEE IF THERE IS GOOD NEWS! WE PRAY SO! MOMMIE SAYS THE CANCER SEEMS TO BE LIGHTER AND HER DOCTOR AGREED. SO JUST MAYBE, WE WILL HAVE THE NEWS WE WANT. THE SURGERY THEY TALKED ABOUT IN WASHINGTON, IS VERY, VERY HARSH AND SO THEY WILL ONLY DO IT IF THEY BELIEVE IT WILL HELP. THEY SAID IT WILL TAKE MONTHS AND MONTHS TO HEAL IF SHE HAS IT. HOPING THE CANCER WILL JUST GO AWAY AND NOT EVER COME BACK. MOMMIE SAYS SHE IS TIRED OF THAT NASTY WORD! SHE HAS BEEN FIGHTING IT SINCE 2002. SHE HOPES THAT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE THAT SHE HAS HELPED OTHERS DEALING WITH THIS.
MOMMIE SAYS TO BE SURE TO GET MAMMOS AND CHECK OFTEN FOR LUMPS.
IF SOMETHING IS WRONG AND YOU KNOW IT, GET A SECOND OPINON.
AND DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. WE ALL KNOW WHEN SOMETHING IS JUST NOT RIGHT. MOMS DR.'s HAVE PUT HER OFF FOR MONTHS AT A TIME, TIME THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SPENT GETTING THINGS RIGHT.
PREM PRO CAUSED THE ORIGNAL BREAST CANCER AND THE RADIATION TO TREAT IT, CAUSED THE SARCOMA CANCER. NOW, SHE HAS ANGIOSARCOMA,
A VERY RARE FROM OF CANCER. SO, ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS PRAY. AND WE THANK ALL OF OUR CATSTER FRIENDS WHO TAKE THE TIME TO SEND PRAYERS.
THANK YOU, EACH AND EVERY ONE.
