Arrival Story:
Mojo came to my house on March 1, 2005. I was planning to put some weight on him, and work on getting him adopted out. After all I've been through with him (see Bio) I decided that I was the best home, and have since adopted him. He gets along well with his new brothers (except when he's on steroids) and is a sweet, snuggly boy. He has finally started gaining weight, and we are very excited about that news!

Mojo came to live with us as a foster cat in March of 2005. He needed to gain some weight, and had a sore on his mouth that wasn't healing like it should. He ended up having to go to the Dermatology Dept at our local vet school, where we were put on the food trial! He did ok, but it didn't help his mouth. Many drug combinations, and 9 months later we have him clear! He is then skin tested and it is discovered that he is allergic to almost everything, trees, grasses, mold, weeds, fleas, etc...good thing he's an indoor kitty! We have recently started his immuno-therapy, or allergy shots. These shots are helping him, although we still experience some 'flair ups' while the pollen is in full bloom. At least we know what combinations of medicines work for him, so we are able to keep him comfortable.

Over the Rainbow

Today, Mojo passed over the rainbow bridge about 9am. He was surrounded by his family and it was a very peaceful passing. He had started having a bit of trouble breathing on Saturday, and by Monday he was more labored. Our vet came over and checked him out and we decided it was close to time. We decided Wednesday morning would be the best time to do our final act of kindness for him. Everything went remarkably smooth. He was perkier this morning than he had been in several days and even ate a fair breakfast. But we noticed he was lame in one foot from the tumor pressing on his spine, so we knew it was still time. Just one last physical reminder that we were making the right decision for him.

We took several paw print impressions after he passed, so we will always have something to remember him by. I took a ton of photos that morning and the night before as well.

After we finished what we needed to do, we drove him to the vet school, one last time. We donated his body to them for research, and hope that they can find a cure for this hateful tumor type.

I just heard from the crematory and Mojo has arrived there and will be cremated tonight. I am going over on Friday to pick up his ashes and he will be forever with me.

He was the sweetest cat ever and so tolerant of any procedure you needed to do to him. His vets at the vet school came out and spoke with us. He had such an impact on so many lives.

Mojo will always be a part of our lives and I will never forget him.

Fly High Superman!! You will be missed!

The new photo at the top was taken the first week in January, 2009. You can see my tumor, a fibrosarcoma, on my side. It is a hateful thing. I am eating better now that I was during that photo shoot, but I am still losing weight. I love to lay in a heated bed, and just snuggle down in a blanket and purr myself to sleep! Life is still good for me.
