A Facebook'friend of mommy's has a very special lovely Mango cat. Last week the cat developed a swelling in it's nose area-a big swelling.
The kitty was taken to the vet-and the results weren't good when the test came in today-Hope has cancer. The cancer is fast spreading, and probably causing her to be uncomfortable.
Hope-that is her name-her mom has made the very difficult decision to see Hope off to the Rainbow Bridge.
Oh, I look at her, a sweet mango kitty, and I see so many lives in her eyes, and so many years of love, and happiness. She's FELV+, and this causes many people to hesitate, but not her mom and dad. They loved Hope, and her status was only a word to them.
It's always hard for our folks, probably harder for them than us, for unless we make the journey quickly, our bodies are such that we begin to shrug them loose, we meditate, and begin to make the transition and make our fare ye wells before we go-we're not afraid, for leaping up and out doesn't frighten us. But we of course worry for our folks. They are our lifelines, our folks.
and this evening, a very lovely pink painted the grey sky, coming up in the distance, shimmering and expanding as the sun went down...and as I reach up and out, my spirit connects with that of a lovely, soft, mango cat, who purrs into the Forever that we emerge from, and return to, with a last small playful purr, she turns and leaps, kitten like, straight up and into the beyond.
Love and Light gentle Messenger. Your work here is done....
Your mom and dad have been painted-the brushstokes you left fresh on their souls....marked as yours, as Guardians of Cat forever and always.
love and light,

Dear Folks and Furs,
A miracle is needed for one that is a living, breathing, and wondrous miracle...for a very kind, beyond belief family.
This family has made my mom cry. You see, they stepped forward, after two very special needs kittens were rescued from Death Row. The kittens, Andy and Bella were on 'the list' and were pulled by rescuers. But then came the hard part-finding a 'forever' home for them. You see, Bella is blind and Andy has hydrocephalus.
A family that should have come out of a fairy tale-with a little boy-a baby really-found out about these kittens and immediately WANTED them. You see, they are very special people. They have other animals, and wanted their son to know that love can be 'special'. And it is.
All should have a happy ending, right? Well...that's never how stories go...there always has to be the scary part..and there is a scary part...
A couple nights ago little Andy became non responsive. He went overnight from a playing, happy kitten to a kitten that appeared comatose. A vet suggested euthanizing him. But his mom and dad were not going to let that happen.
They reached out to the rescue community, and people began to share, and donate and share, and donate. Love and money flowed like honey.
And Andy got seen by a 'specialist' hours away...a picture shows a comatose kitten laying in the arms of a bewildered little boy...'Andy Come Back'.....
His kitten sister Bella, bewildered and blind searched for him everywhere, and cried and cried....but he had to be at the vet hospital-
and then.....the good vets, the amazing vets...made a miracle....
Andy revived!!! He came home yesterday.
This is a fragile situation. Tomorrow Andy is scheduled for surgery. The vets must relieve the pressure by placing a shunt. The vets are positive and hopeful, and his family are too. Andy is responsive, but it's fragile and without the surgery, this could happen again, as the fluid will continue to build. With the shunt, the chances are excellent that Andy will not have a problem again and will be a healthy little kitten.
What is love? Is it a little boy, his hands gentle on soft and white fur, a small kitten one vet at CACC deemed 'mentally retarded' and 'unadoptable', marking him 'New Hope' only, slating him for Death Row....and across the miracle of a million flashing circuits, an angel named Trudy and Lyn and Michelle and...well, angels who are folks working through the night to bring these kittens out of the bowels of hell...and succeeding....and that kitten, purring beside a smaller black and white one, also saved, in the arms of a little child...
Tonight, I reach across the universe to my Angels, my feline angels who are at the Bridge, and my Angels here, and my feline friends and their folks. I ask good energy, prayers, and if you can spare anything for this little cat's surgery, it would be a stairway of light towards someplace that wonder lives-a radiant band of light that surrounds this little kitten, and perhaps, really, all of us.
Tomorrow this little kitten goes in for surgery.....
and I will purr and reach up with power of the paw to add my purr to all of those who send love and light to Andy-to Bella-to the family.
I include the You Caring link....if you 'follow' Trudy Schilder on Facebook, you will see the details of what is going on with Andy.
For I must believe...Trust that Miracles Do Occur.....
And we are miracles in fur.....
love and light, my friends, love and light

Well, today I went to see the vet and it was very unpleasant. The vet was at first very nice, but then, when Mommy said she didn't know if I'd been to the box to pee, and the vet guy said I had a full bladder, he stuck a little tube up a very delicate place and told mommy and daddy I was ok there and would probably go on my own.
I am now back on fluids, 2x a week. Not because I'm dehydrated, but because they will help my liver to 'flush' things out. He explained this to daddy. I am also back on my appetite booster. He explained to daddy I need to be on it sometimes because my heart sometimes doesn't work well enough and it backs stuff up to my liver and that the heart meds might make me feel a lack of appetite sometimes.
I did eat this morning, and mommy has some chicken put aside for me. She also said that I can pretty much have whatever I want to eat rightnow as I wouldn't eat my classic turkey this evening. As we all off it, Mommy is wondering if they have changed the formula.
I'm so glad to be home, and sitting in the kitchen on my little mat, waiting for chicken.
thanks for everyone thinking of me!
love and light,
