A New Year Another Year Older

I've managed to make it to my 12th birthday on Valentine's Day. Despite years of Diabetes, Asthma, ear infections and having tumors removed and much more medical fun I've made it! I know my mom is happy that I'm still here and still happy. Just between you and me, I think she's kinda crazy and a bit of a clinger, but it's okay, I love her anyway. I've been spoiled with fresh fish, lobster and even my favorite thing ever, CHEESE! It's been a really good week. My brother is as annoying as ever but what's new? Till next time my friends. Mew.


Summertime and the livin is easy

It's so hot outside that mommy won't let me out. She insists that it's too hot and I can get sick out there. Daddy took out my brother and he got overheated last night, it really scared me. But he's feeling all better now. I think we'll just settle for sitting in our condo with the AC going while we look out the window. Mom says it's safer for us anyway, especially now that we live in a place with lot of traffic. Traffic, whatever that is. Mom is so weird.

Speaking of mommy being weird. I wonder why she gets so flustered when I bite and lick her face in the early hours of the morning. Silly mommy, doesn't she know that I get fed when I say so? :) Meow!


And so it begins...

I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with mammary cancer. Today I was told that I wouldn't make it through having this. I don't think those doctors know what they're talking about, don't they know who I am??

I sure wish mommy would stop following me around the house, it's like she's stalking me. She keeps crying too, I don't like it when she does that. I think that's one of the only things that actually scares me.

I'm just a hungry kitty who wants brushes and love, eww@this cancer stuff. Mommy told me that she lost her mommy to it, I'd sure hate for the doctors to be right about me. I don't know what mommy would do.

If something happens to me, please make sure my mommy will be okay. That's the only thing I worry about, that and dinner time.


Nom nom!

Mommy got me new food and it's very tasty! The other stuff I was eating wasn't that good. I keep trying to tell her that I like fish but she insists that chicken is good for me. I'll tell her what's good for me!

So I'm on day 4 of my treatment with the TKI and so far so good. I find myself getting hungry a lot and I hide under the bed when mommy is out and about. I come lay on her lap when we watch tv together. She's been watching lots of the Olympics, watching the water events scare me. Yikes@water.

I've met some new friends on here and I hope I get to meet many more. It's so hard to make friends when you're an indoor cat.

I find that I don't like my mommy sleeping in. She does that when she's up all night be a worrywart! I wake her up at the same time every day if she's not already awake. I give her lots of kisses and bites on her face and her arms. It just makes her try to snuggle me, but I don't give up until she gets out of bed and I hear the *pop!* of a can of tasty being opened. Some people don't think we're that smart, but boy can I prove those silly folks wrong! I don't think they realize that when I was younger, I could play fetch too. ;)


Meow! Everyone is so nice here!

I think I'm starting to really like it here. I've met so many new friends and they're all so kind. I wonder if they would have had my back earlier today when mommy was trying to give me my medicine. She thought she was sneaky by putting it in some delicious tuna, boy did I fool her when I picked all the tuna from around it! She was trying to give the yucky medicine to me but finally gave up after 20 minutes and fed me a big piece of cheese that looked suspiciously like it was hiding something. Hmmmm.... And the plot thickens. Time for a nap under mommy's desk, I'm feeling very sleepy today. I'd sure like to get my energy back up so I can play again, I miss that a lot!


Hi this is Avail's mommy

I have the report from the biopsy done on the tumors that we had removed from her mammary gland last month. I guess it explains why the prognosis is so bad.

So...she has poorly differentiated mammary gland adenocarcinoma which means it's a grade III tumor. When it comes to kitties with grade III tumors, especially mammary cancer, they don't usually live a year.

"Cells are at the edge of section along one side so there is a high chance for recurrence of this tumor. Lymphatic invasion indicates a significant potential for metastasis as well."

I know she doesn't know what's wrong and she never will, but that doesn't change how devastating this is for me. She has been my baby for 12 years now and I was honestly hoping for many more years with her. She has truly brought so much happiness in my life that I never would have had without her.

I'm just trying to figure out where to go from here. Looks like radical surgery will be a no-no, but I'm thinking maybe chemo to stop it from spreading so fast. I just want her to feel happy and healthy while I prepare myself to lose the love of my life.


Oh me??

I wake up today to see that I got to be the diary of the day! No wai! I definitely knew before mom did, I celebrated by biting every imaginable spot on her face while she was sleeping. I thought we could celebrate with some minced turkey & salmon Wellness wet food! It's definitely my new favorite. Anyone else out there like it as much as me? It's quite delicious and I'm pretty sure me and my brother McCow eat like the queen and king that we are!

You know what I've noticed lately? THE POTTY! It's like every time one of us goes to the bathroom, mommy or daddy go running in to clean it. It's immaculate and purrrrrrfection! They say it's because of the medicine I have to take, but I didn't know I was taking medicine. I just thought every other day they spoil me with things like tuna and cheese. Hmmm...I think I'm onto something.

I sure wish I lived in the country again so I could go outside! We live in the city so we don't have backyard, or even a front one! I miss being able to walk around in the grass and sprint away just to see the looks on my mommy and daddy's faces. They should know by now that I just do it to mess with them. :) Avail #1!


Still figuring this place out!

I'm still learning the ropes here so bear with my kitty paws. Today's been very slow for me, I've just been sleeping. I think the stuff mommy fed me yesterday made me sleepy today. I spent all yesterday sleeping in mommy and daddy's laps, it was the best! I think they were pretty happy about it too.

Mommy found a small bump on my back so we're going to have to get that checked out. Daddy seems to think it's an ingrown hair but mommy says it doesn't look right. Another trip to my oncologist is in the works, I need to see how my TKI is helping and probably start chemo.

Oh the life of a kitty with mammary cancer. It's definitely not as fun as a normal kitty life. But at least I get lots and lots of food any time I want it. So much better than being restricted because of my diabetes. Everything has so much protein!

Mommy has been taking lots of pictures of me. I thought I would put up a couple of them. How do you like my purrrrrty eyes??
