Arrival Story:
I visited the cat shelter I once volunteered at the week before Christmas 2004. There was a cat who watched everything I did when I walked by her. She wanted attention, which I gave her. I went back to the shelter on January 9, 2005. When I walked in, she went to the front of the room to listen to whatever I had to say. She knew--and I knew--she was coming home with me! I kept the name she had before and during life at the shelter. She was most likely born sometime in 2003.

Lisa made herself at home quickly; the first thing she did was run to the food dish. When she first met one of my friends who has a cat, she hissed at her after she smelled her cat on her. She got used to the smell of other cats; she still doesn't like it, but tolerates it. Lisa now likes the friend she hissed at earlier. I'm so happy I gave Lisa a home away from streets and shelters!

News From My Latest Checkup

March 1st 2015 3:40 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

I went for my latest checkup on February 23. My general physical exam went well, but the vet found a few nodules on my lungs. He told mom they are consistent with cancer spread and we are very concerned. Mom started to give me chemo pills on February 25 (after my vet got my blood work results and told mom it was okay) and I get a pill on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. My next exam is on March 23.

I love to snuggle up next to one of the heat sources, which is normal for me in the cold. I have a good appetite, but I’m not interested in playing or catnip. I had a 50/50 chance of coming out of the surgery I had in 2010 and made it. Although the odds are more against me, we want the pills and anything else to help me win this battle.


Snow, Snow and More Snow!

Mom says that there has been seven feet of snow in the past three weeks, including a foot between late last night and this morning. The snow keeps piling up because it had little or no chance to melt. It also has been cold and windy outside much of the time.

Although I stay inside, I sense when cold happens. I love to rest in my condo or sit by radiators. It is warm in the house, but I want all the warmth I can get.

My cancer veterinary team has a work week of Monday-Thursday. Mom saw the weather forecast Wednesday night and made the call Thursday to reschedule the follow-up I was supposed to have tomorrow. I will get my ultrasound, X-rays and general exam on February 23—unless there is another big storm next weekend. She wants to make sure the roads are safe to drive on.

Whenever I eventually get my follow-up, we always wish for cancer-free results.


I Made It To My 10th Gotcha Day Anniversary!

It is my 10th Gotcha Day Anniversary and I am still here!

After my breast cancer diagnosis in July, mom was afraid I would join Abby before today. I am doing fine and mom says that I could outlive her. She is very pleased that I don’t need medicine now. I can be playful at times and I loved the catnip mom gave me tonight. I am still excellent when it comes to growling and hissing. I have a good appetite.

Mom got a new bed that is two feet instead of three feet off the ground for us. She likes it because it doesn’t have lumps in it and I like it because I can jump up to get on it. We hope I don’t need the step stool to get on the bed again.

Our wish is for me to write another entry on my 11th Gotcha Day Anniversary.

Thanks to everyone who sent me gifts!
