It's been way too long again

Mum has just discovered that catster seems to be working again. If it wasn't for the fleas that catster has had lately we would've been posting a more regularly.

Mum has been busy with work and lot of stuff has happened to my family since my last diary entry.

My Grandpa who was battling liver cancer passed away three months ago and joined my angel brother Ka - zar at the bridge. He was really starting to suffer and the cancer had gone right through his body. As mum said it was a merciful death. The last thing to come out of Grandpa mouth was a joke and he was gone. Mum suspects it from heart attack.

My Grandma who also had treatment for cancer recently went for a three month check up and she is going really well. Her blood work was perfect and she eating like a horse and doing all the things she used to do before she got sick.

As for me I am doing really well. I have grown like a weed since mum posted those photos of me and I am going to kick her butt about putting some more current photos of me on my page. Those baby photos are way out of date now and she may be even able to post some videos of me. She loves chasing me around with her phone getting videos of me.

Well this all the news I have for now. I hope there is shorter time between diary entries next time.

Purrs and hugs your not so little Aussie mate



It's been way too long.

It's been way too long. my last diary entry was September 20th last year. Mum wasn't a happy camper with catster not working properly so she decided to stop using it until they fixed now.

Now it seems that all is well in catserland. We will try and make an effort to be around more. We have a lot going on in our family at the moment so it going to be a real effort to get in here.

My Grandpa still has live cancer. It didn't respond to the standard chemo. So Mum and Grandma are trying to help him find a drug trial that will work. Grandpa went to see his oncologist last week and was told that the cancer is a slow progressing type.

They are trying to find a drug trial that may help him. Please keep in your purrs that something turn up soon.

Grandma had three months treatment for central nervous system non hodgkin. lymphoma. All the central nervous system part means is that it was in the brain.

After three months of trips backward and forwards to Melbourne the doctors can no longer see the lesion on an MRI so the chemo has done it's work.

As for me I am doing really well. I have grown a lot since those photos on my page were posted. I turn 1 this Thursday and Mum is upset that I am no longer considered a kitten. Mum doesn't have anything to worry about I'll still play and act like one.

Well I got to go that's all my news for now.

Sending purrs to anyone that needs them.

Your not so little Aussie mate



it's been a while.

With all that been going on with my human family, there hasn't been a lot of time to update you all. Add to that and Mum has been working really hard so my computer time is limited. Well I let mum type for me since she quicker. I also stole the text about Grandpa from my angel brother Ka - zar's diary.

I am not sure if this will post but I am going to try anyway. Since there has been a lot of fleas on catster the last thing I posted about my Grandpa was that he had the liver tumor removed.

Well the surgery went well for that and Grandpa came home about 10 days later to recover. Then he had another scan 8 weeks post surgery and they found that the liver had grown back with cancerous lesions on it 6 of them to be exact.

They are doing chemo once every 2 weeks and then doing a CT scan every 8 weeks to keep an eye on what's going on and to see if the lesions have shrunk once they have Grandpa might have to go back to Melbourne for more surgery. As mum reckons that not the worst thing in the world.

Please keep my Grandpa in your prayers and purrs as we all love him and I don't want him up here at the bridge with my angel brother Ka - zar anytime soon I know if anything happens to my Grandpa my Grandma would be lost and devastated.

I have not been with my family for very long but I love my Grandpa and I hope the power of the purrs and paw can help him beat this.

Purrs your little Aussie mate
