Arrival Story:
On Super Bowl Sunday 2008 we went to Maddie’s Adoption Center at the San Francisco SPCA to find a playmate for our kitty Little Bit. I was wandering around looking in the rooms and reading the bios on the windows and I found one that sounded like a good fit. She was a six year old tabby who had been at Maddie’s for six months. I looked into the room but I could not see a kitty. Then I looked down and saw that she was at the door looking up and meowing at me. A volunteer took us in the room and we sat down on the floor. The kitty immediately jumped in my lap and gave me a nose kiss. Then she jumped in Bill’s lap and gave him a nose kiss. Bill said, "Who do we make the check out to?". Her name at the shelter was Colette, but on the way home we renamed her Sugar.

Bio:
In January 2013, Sugar was diagnosed with feline mammary gland cancer. She had a lumpectomy and unilateral mastectomy. Her tumor was malignant, which is not surprising since that is the case with a high percentage of feline mammary tumors. The surgeon did not see any evidence of the cancer in her lymph nodes or lungs. In April of 2013 she had a local recurrence and that tumor was removed, then followed by five rounds of chemotherapy. Sugar celebrated 1 year in remission in April 2014 and shortly thereafter we discovered her cancer had returned in her lungs and chest. Our Sweet Brave Warrior journeyed to Rainbow Bridge on May 22, 2014. We will love and miss her forever.

The Sweet Scoop


Meowlo From the Rainbow Bridge

I have been at the Bridge over three months now and I've seen so many of my friends here!

Once I got my wings I was able to fly down and visit Mama J. She loves it when I fly through the wind chimes in the backyard and say Meowlo to her. I run through the house too and a couple of times she has seen me!

I was warmly welcomed into the Pink Angel Brigade by Tallulah, Nat Cat, Bella, Avail, and Stripey. We all have pink wings and we sprinkle pink angel dust on our earth friends and family who need comfort and healing. Each kitty on earth who is fighting mammary cancer has a member of the Pink Angel Brigade assigned to be their Pink Guardian Angel. Sadly we are very busy because mammary cancer is the third most common cancer in cats. I just got assigned to a new kitty today. Her name is Lisa and she is recovering from her second mastectomy.

Dear Friends,

On May 22, 2014 I made my crossing to the Rainbow Bridge. From the moment Mama J had noticed my labored breathing nine days earlier we had hoped and prayed that the cause was something that could be managed or even cured. But that was not to be. So Mama J and Daddy B made the hardest decision that our parents ever make, to give me that final unselfish gift of love.

My crossing to the Rainbow Bridge was very peaceful. I was in our home where I have always been safe, loved, warm and protected. Mama J and Daddy B were with me. Mama J wrapped me in her arms and Daddy B and Dr. Calvin stroked my fur. The last words I heard on earth were Mama J saying, "We love you." Then I began my journey to this beautiful place where there is no pain, no cancer, no cruelty, only light and love.

My time on earth is over but my 10th life has just begun. My mission to raise awareness of breast cancer in animals continues. I hope you'll join me in my mission my friends.

XX Sugar

 

Asking for Big Purrs Tomorrow

Hello my friends. It has been sometime since I've written here. It's hard cuz the news I have to share is not what I'd like it to be.

About 2 1/2 weeks ago Mom gave me a Sugar Rub! and she found a lump in the very same place as the first one. Well she was so upset and disappointed too since my prognosis after my unilateral mastectomy had been so good.

I went to the oncologist the next day and two days later I had surgery to remove it. Turns out is was a local recurrence and there was some good news, it had not gone into my lymph nodes and my lung x-ray was clear.

The not so good news is that now I have to have chemotherapy. My first treatment is tomorrow.

Please purr for me that the chemo will get rid of any cancer cells that may still be there *and* that I tolerate it well.

And please be sure your humans give you your Sugar Rubs!! Both of my lumps were found by my mom!!

SWANK,
Sugar
